Academics Rating

Most classes are actually very helpful. Even if you believe general education is a waste of time it really does teach you to become more well rounded. Most professors are helpful. The workload in most classes are not too bad. Class sizes can range from a good small amount to large lecture halls filled with 200-300 students. I don't find much of a difference in either.

Academics Rating

the classes are impacted so its hard to get all the ones you want and class sizes are bigger. that doesn't mean they aren't fulfilling., the main way you are going to learn is be active in the class no matter how big it is. professors are good for the most part and the workload is manageable.
