Academics Rating

Absolutely love the Chicana/o Studies classes. All of the professors that I have had truly enjoy teaching and sharing their knowledge with students. They support you one hundred percent and will go the extra mile to ensure your success. At times the workload can be a bit much, which is usually with newer professors. The Chicana/o Studies professors try to keep your costs down by assigning readings that are available through the library catalog for free, so that is a bonus. The class sizes varies by topic and professor. There are a handful of professors who are very popular with the students and their classes tend to fill up pretty quickly.

Some classes are extremely hard some are easy but still requires dedication. Some of the professors I've talked to are very helpful and will take time to give you advice some are just very strict and sort of hard to talk to.
