Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

I have taken extremely interesting classes throughout my two semesters. Even as a freshmen, there are a lot of small classes available where you really learn a lot and get to know the professor. The sociology department is amazing and though I don't know personally, I have heard that the Management school is great and provides students with a lot of great employment opportunities. Workload can be a lot, but if you balance writing classes with classes that give tests, most students aren't too stressed out. Great motivated academic atmosphere!


Alumnus - Grad Year 2000

Academics Rating

As I am sure other schools are too, college can be as hard or as easy as you choose to make it. I worked hard, but felt rewarded by the experience. There were some professors who were GREAT and others that were merely so-so. The classes that were offered were large in amount and diverse. I never felt like I couldn't find an interesting class to take.
