Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Academics Rating

Classes are small, the largest course at FandM (Psychology100) is a class of about 100 and the smallest class size is 4. Workload is on the heavier side, but ranges depending upon major and is usually manageable as professors are understanding usually. Professors are exceptional - funny, engaged, intelligent - they truly are there for their students and want to make our educational attainment better. Majors are broad.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

Professors are some of the best. Extremely easy to talk to and get along with. Classes are pretty small. I have never been in a class with more than 20 students. The workload is pretty tough, but then again that's to be expected from a good college.
