Academics Rating

My program the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CHASS) is well suited for an English major like me. My peer mentors from my classes help me when im confused on where to go or what to do academically. My professors are very easy to reach either through their office hours or Email. All of my professors encourage active participation as well as questions on anything we are confused on. Class sizes obviously differ from each subject but I prefer smaller class sizes as it is easier to speak to the professor directly. Workloads are as expected, tough work but manageable if you use your time wisely.

Academics Rating

They rank high on their overall academic rating. One reason why I chose Riverside was the business school that they have, which has one of the top undergraduate programs in the state. I look forward to attending this fall!
