Academics: Its a large workload but the teachers are really helpful

3 College Freshman

Academics: As a political science/ economics major, my academic experience has been sort of lack-luster. The economics program here is almost non-existent (through AP credit, I have half of my major completed already). For political science, the program is suited for getting students into law school or into the business world with no real connections or tie-ins with real politics. There are some great professors here in political science (Dr. Weissburg is a gem), but the program itself is more of a novelty than a legitimate area. There are research opportunities in the major, but nothing like connections for internships or getting your name out there in politics. It's a decent program, but not great.
