3 College Sophomore

Academics: The teachers are ok but they'll help you out when you ask for it.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: When I first started at my college, I discovered that my program has mandatory meetings with the students for suggestions and internship information. They offered job opportunities for the students on and off the campus in my program. The curriculum is not easy, but it can be if you study like you need to. The workload is very time-consuming and opens up new research to the world sometimes. The building is okay, but sometimes the air-conditioning is not working.
