Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

I just transferred from a small technical college so the class size seem large but I know as I progress the class size will shrink. I am enjoying the classes I signed up for this semester. My professors are extremely intelligent and are very motivating individuals.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1984

Academics Rating

I worked full-time and attended business classes at night. Professors were dedicated to teaching at night but were also very considerate of our multi-task lifestyles. For example, the district judge who taught business law allowed me to come to his chambers to take make-up tests when my work schedule conflicted with my class schedule.
