Academics Rating

Overall I would say the academics are pretty good but there are a few things to be mentioned. The class size is a problem for most courses, they fill the classes to the max if not more. I think the programs and classes offer all the students what they need. They cover most fields and do a good job transferring credits. The workload is very manageable and the professors, for the most part, are fine.
