3 College Sophomore

Academics: The number of majors offered is low but Carlow is pretty small which allows for more focus on the more popular majors like nursing, education, and biology.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a biology major at Carlow so I take pride in the title. The curriculum can be pretty intense but the professors are great and always willing to help. The labs in the science hall are have great equipment and are well suited for the biology and chemistry majors.

College Junior

Academics: I am in the accelerated program so I am enrolled in 8 week terms that are much more fast paced. I enjoy the quicker work and all of my teachers are awesome. I cannot compare this to the traditional student experience.

5 College Junior

Academics: All of the teachers follow strict policies, but if you at least are trying for good grades they will work with you and study with you.

3 College Junior

Academics: Nursing is extremely time consuming and very content-rich. It takes lots of studying and dedication to be successful. There are options for academic support and tutoring, which are helpful in order to ensure success and reinforce material. The instructors truly care about each student and make sure their needs are met. When I graduate, I will be prepared for the working world and will be able to put the skills I learned to use.
