IM CURRENTLY TAKING A WORLOAD OF 16 UNITS. I THINK THE CLASS SIZES ARE OK. IM IN TWO BIG LECTURES HALLS AND PEOPLE JUST KEEP IT TO THEMSELVES WHICH MAKES THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT BETTER I THINK. SO FAR I LIKE ALL OF MY PROFESSORS TEACHING METHODS.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

Sometimes the class sizes can be intimidating and the classes are really hard to get in to, but the teachers really care about the students' success and are very helpful. Most of my classes just have four tests that make up your grade and I think it's way better than doing a bunch of busy work.
