Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

The class sizes are very small considering we are a small school. The professors make their classes very hands-on. We have many programs to fit you and tons of financial aid to help you through it. The workload can be tough depending on what classes you take.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

The classes are small and the professors make time for you and they get to know you. The class sizes are normally not bigger than 20 people in one class. There isn't too much work, you always have time to do all the work on time.
