Academics Rating

The workload is intense. Prepare to have no life if you want A's. Allot is expected of the students, but on the plus side it is not busy, boring work. The class sizes are all different. Some classes have 16 people, some have 40, and some have 100. It just depends.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

The classes for my program have been really great and I really enjoy learning. The information I have been learning has been very enlightening. The hard part of school though was my general education courses. I felt that they were very difficult and the workload was a lot. This got me very depressed and question whether or not I wanted to continue pursuing my major.
