4 College Senior

Academics: NURSING: workload-is definitely a lot but its worth it. Clinicals are limited to what you get to see or do, but fun for the most part. Facilities are good. there are numerous resources available to students who struggle with content. you will have a full load of classes.

Academics: It's easy to get along with professors. they are willing to work with you and are always open. Registration can take forever if you don't do it early and wait to late or long to complete.

5 College Senior

Academics: There are great professors here that will help you in anyway possible. The registration process is simple and easy. A good place to study is our famous library and sometimes your own dorm.

4 College Senior

Academics: My major is agricultural businesse and you can basically become a manager of your own company. It deals with plants, animal living, and soils. It is a great major to be in. You get to do hands on work and see the difference in working with soil and other things.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am satisfied as an English major. I would contribute this to the fact that there are not many of us so our relationships with our professors are close and attentive. The workload is pretty heavy, but that comes with the territory of being an English major. I wish that there were more internships and job opportunities specifically for English majors though.
