4 College Sophomore

Academics: I have enjoyed most of my classes even if they have been required for general education only. The workload can really vary depending on your class and professor. I like studying in my room but there are so many other places to go as well.

4 College Junior

Academics: I transferred universities, because of the academics.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It's college, the workload is going to be quite a bit more than high school. The professors can be researched on ratemyprofessor.com to find out which ones are the best and who you're going to learn the most from. Registration is okay, as long as you get to do it early and do it on time! The library is a great place to study.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I am constantly being told that people are majoring in Elementary Education. My major is definitely a large chunk of the percentages of App's degrees. After completing Gen. Ed, my education is thought out well. The steps can be easily followed.

5 College Junior

Academics: One of two schools that had a degree program that was up my alley, not too many places have it.
