Academics Rating

Most the classes are small enough where it feels as though it is one on one with you and the instructor, but there are classes you can take that are bigger if that way is not desired. The teachers are flexible, and will work with everyone student to benefit them as much as possible. The class rooms are rather small, like a high school class room, basic and nothing special. The workload is never too much. The teachers don't over work the students, even during finals week.
