Academics Rating

The programs are alright, kind of like high school a little bit too much for my taste, but the class sizes are small and the teachers outstanding. The counselors really strive to make you more attractive in the career field and find your true passions.

Most of the classes are well established. Professors are organized and the course material is structured well. Most professors tend to be rather flexible for students with heavy workloads but still manage to push individuals to excel in various challenges.
