4 College Sophomore

Academics: Everyone is very close because we are all on the same track to becoming a teacher. The teachers are very open and understanding.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The art majors have an extremely high amount of credits necessary for graduation, but the number will be going down soon. Plus, the professors there are extremely capable of teaching and connecting with the students. They push you, but they are also willing to discuss ways to work things out with students.
The workload can be intimidating, but most of the teachers are very understanding and will help you out.
It's difficult to find internships, but there are several connections at Buena Vista.
