Academics Rating

Depending on your major and courses class size can vary. I had a math class with only 18 students in it, however I also had a biology lecture hall with 300 students. Science courses are typically larger than any other courses on campus due to liberal arts core.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

I feel like I have unlimited resources available to me for my research. The professors are all unique and have a great deal of information to share with their related professional experience. Class sizes vary from large 30-people lectures to small 15-people courses. The class sizes are catered to the material being taught and smaller classes are usually found in courses exclusive to your major to provide more professor-student communication. This is especially true for classes in the Visual and Performing Arts.
