3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I have not been accepted into my program yet because there are prerequisites that have to be completed first. I have not felt overwhelmed by the course load that I have been taking. Over all my program so far is enjoyable.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Professors are amazing. The curriculum is not as hard as I expected, but I still struggle when it comes to finding time to focus solely on my studies. Registering for classes is simple and I can even do it online.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Great school, rich learning environment.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Many programs of study, lots of contimuing education classes offered.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: As an accounting major and an older student (50) I think we have some great teachers and some that aren't so great. But we have a goo learning assistance center, there is always someone there to help you out. The workload can be intimidating at times, but I think that is true no matter where you go, or what program you are in.
