3 College Junior

Academics: Mechanical Engineering is a very difficult major. The curriculum is difficult and I expected that. It requires a lot of math skills and studying. However there are a lot of job options that I will benefit with when I graduate.

4 College Junior

Academics: There are a lot of options for studies. The professors are for the most part very helpful and good at their jobs as well.

3 College Junior

Academics: Decent amount of work. Just pick the right professors like Sugg and Folker

3 College Junior

Academics: Library and dorms are great study places. Some people study in offices of their professors

3 College Junior

Academics: It is a long and expensive process there are few internships available right now and not many companies are hiring in my areas of interest. Also getting into the Nursing program to go for a B.S.N. is very difficult due to the high demand for the Nursing program and only a select few are chosen for the program every Fall semester.
