3 College Freshman

Academics: My work load does not seem very challenging. The most challenging part is trying to earn my double majors and having the college insist that I also complete the schools liberal arts degree. The amount of requirements to earn the liberal arts degree is quite stressful when it does not relate to either of my desired majors.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are clubs and organizations for everyone based on the major they are interested in.
