4 College Junior

Academics: When it comes to workload and curriculum, it's all about what you sign yourself up for. You'll have a ridiculous workload only if you sign yourself up for one, otherwise it's completely manageable. Some majors are harder workloads than others, but that's to be expected. For the most part, professors generally are knowledgeable and fair; it doesn't hurt to ask for recommendations or check RateMyProfessor before registering for a class, though. Registration is simple and easy once you learn how to do it the first time. There are millions of great study areas both on campus and off.
