Alumnus - Grad Year 1998

Academics Rating

I was in the Business School and while it had a large selection of specialties, it felt like a manageable school with approachable faculty and flexible programs. I was never in a lecture with more than 50 people and never in a class with more than 25 which made for an open environment to facilitate discussions and open learning. Outside of my major, I was able to take an array of interesting classes as electives; film, spanish, geology, creative writing, etc. and spent a semester abroad where all my classes transfered for graduation credits ( very important! ).
