Academics Rating

I enjoy interacting with the instructors who always make themselves available via office hours, email and after class. Since I am a business major, I am always working on group projects, which can be great and annoying when you have a slacker member in the group.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

Academics Rating

The program i was involved in was a Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Digital Media. Most of these Art type classes are smaller than regular Associate lecture courses that could have large lecture portions, (200 or so students each lecture) and smaller accompanying labs like you would find in any typical University setting. The workload is really as difficult or easy as you want to make it. I definately had some semesters where i probably took too many credits and others where i took fewer because i was working a lot.
