3 College Junior

Academics: Just like any other university, there are bad professors and good professors. There doesn't seem to be a means to get changes made to academic departments. Most colleges make a maximum credit load on 18 hours. Here the max is 22 and if you aren't taking at least 18 it is strange.

3 College Junior

Academics: Registration here is a drag, athletes take up many of the classes needed by a majority of the school. Less administrators and more professors are needed in order to fill the false claim of a 13:1 ratio of professors to students in class (double that).

4 College Senior

Academics: It's fine, there are some internship abroad opportunities wish is nice, but because of accreditation it's rather limited in what we can do
