Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Academics Rating

The professors is my area of study are, for the most part, very well-versed in what they teach and actually care about how well you understand. The best teacher I've had to date was Mark Nielsen, the anatomy teacher. He is passionate about what he's teaching you and makes it fun to learn.

Alumnus - Grad Year 1966

Academics Rating

We were on the "quarter" system so the start up time was minimal. Professors were very good and class size was not a problem. General education was a priority which gave you plenty of time to identify/pursue a major.
