There are about 9,000 students, and the class sizes are around 20 or less, so it is a very personalized education. I encourage you to take Dave Ross. He's there to see you succeed. If you are struggling, he will do what it takes to help you. He's interested in whether you know the knowledge or not, not how well you can memorize and regurgitate for a test. And for all the professors, they want to give you equip you with life skills that you will actually use in the real world. Whoever your professors are, get to know them. They are there for you. The cost of this school is great, too! At $100/credit hour, you can't go wrong. That comes to about 1600 a semester (including books!) And less than 4000 for a whole year of college!! AND they have financial aid available. Overall, I love this school, and I would encourage everyone to go.

The school is a great one. It's well organized. Whenever you need help the faculty is always there to help you. The classes are very educational and useful the, the class sizes are average not to bad about 24 to 30 students per class.. The professors are really nice and willing to help out. The workload of a class pretty much depends on the professor but overall they aren't to bad on that.
