Academics Rating

Most pre-requisite classes at KU are a fairly large size, some having a thousand students, but many classes require discussion sessions where you meet with about fifteen students from the class and talk with a TA about what is going on in class. It is a great way to answer any question you may not want to ask in front of a thousand other people and it is also a great way to meet other students from your classes. The professors are all willing to help anyone who asks for it. Some classes require more workloads and studying than others but it is nothing extreme. You can truly learn a lot if you put in the effort.

The classes I have had on campus were all very good. I had some that I liked more than others, and I found myself not being bored in my night classes, which was new to me. Homework was never an issue for me, as I always get my work done on time. I don't really have a choice to procrastinate, as my life is very busy anyways. My classes has never been over 20 people in the class, and I absolutely love that. The teachers know me by name, not by number.
