Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

For me, I am in computer science. The program itself is pretty tough I will admit, but it will be well worth it in the end. The professors in CS are amazing, especially if you get Mccan or Homer. There are some lousy ones too, but it works well I guess.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

The honors system here seems a little unorganized, but it helps with registration. A lot of the professors are nice and are there to help you. Many of them will actually sit with you and try to help you understand any of the material you are confused about. There is a lot of work, especially because I am a dual science major. Most of my classes have not been that big. I have a few that are about 500 people.
