4 College Senior

Academics: Husson is the only school in my area that offers degrees in Paralegal Studies. The other schools offer degrees in Criminal Justice Studies with certificates in Paralegal Studies. My program exposes me to the areas of law that many attorneys in the state practice in. The workload can be overwhelming at times, but that's because I have five courses this semester. The instructors and professors are attorneys that practiced in the area of law they are teaching. They have they experience and knowledge and are passing it on to their students.

Academics: I think some of the professors here are very nice and helpful. However, I have had instances with some professors that don't know how to teach at all. Some professors have had no prior experience to teaching jobs, which makes it hard to learn anything from them. My program is very stressful to be in because I have to keep such a high GPA. With help from the tutoring center though I have been able to maintain the required GPA.

Academics: Professors are fantastic! They are so willing to help students and provide students with a doable workload. The curriculum is challenging and the registration process is easy!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I am majoring in occupational therapy. I am very happy with the option of a five year accelerated masters program, as opposed to a six year program. I am well aware that the caseload is much heavier than the average college student but I have chosen this path in order to graduate a year earlier. The facilities are average, and again I have been disappointed in the degree of individual attention students receive from advisors. The internships we have had thus far have been vaguely outlined and loosely monitored. I think that is a major flaw in preparing students for a career. I hope that this will improve as I move forward into the next phase of my course load.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics courses themselves I would consider to be above average, and the offerings cover a nice variety of options. However, because the professors are often actual professionals in their given field, they are often inexperienced teachers. Their knowledge base it very good, but they often have difficulty conveying the information to students. I have also found it difficult to make appointments with professors as the amount of time they spend on campus is limited. The registration process has been extremely inconvenient for most students as it opens either at midnight or 5am and is done strictly online. It would be nice to sit down with an actual person occasionally to discuss upcoming scheduling of courses.
