Student at This School - Grad Year 2008

Academics Rating

The school class sizes varies from subject to subject. Personally, for me class sizes ranged from 20-50 students, but I know some classes have much more than that. For example, some science courses had about 100 students. New students ask other students often about professors, which helps them decide to take the class or not. I have never had a teacher that I wasn't pleased with; all of my teachers were nice and willing to help their students. What helped me get through my college courses was taking the initiative to use every available source that WSU offers and one of them was going to my professors' office hours. Seeking one-on-one help from professors was the best thing I did for myself because it helped me become successful. Professors like it when students seek them out for help. I managed my workload, I took 12 credits max, but many students take on more than 12 credits at a time because they believe it will help them graduate quicker, which isn't always true in every case. I suggest that future students should know their limits and take only what they can handle. Students need to be aware that some classes are more difficult than others. I managed my class workload by having a balance. I would take a couple of hard class and an easy class or two. I also spread out the times for each class, so that I would have time to prepare for the next class and not be late.
