Academics Rating

My program was in the College of Public and Community Service. The program was the best! We basically took classes that translated into community projects and hands on learning. The professors were passionate and driven. I think we worked hard and were taught well. My classes challenged and empowered me. Classes were small and intimate. The workload was reasonable, but demanding. .
