Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

Classes are large your first 2 years and you really have to be a self advocate to learn everything. However, as you get into your major classes are smaller with professors that love what they are teaching and really want to help you learn.


Alumnus - Grad Year 1968

Academics Rating

In graduate school most classes were under 20 people with the professor teaching . The professors are updated and not stodgy, and readily accessible. The workloads are reasonable but one must be ready for the challenge. There is great comradery amongst the staff and students.
