3 College Sophomore

Academics: This nursing program is a tough one to be in they completely chose our clinicals and your entire class schedule basically by only offering the classes you need at one time. Overall though it is a very successful program.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some exams are hard but it test your knowledge.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are great. Workload can differ but they are doable.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Because the class sizes are smaller, students would get more face to face recognition with their professor. This is to their benefit because their professors would get to know them on a more personal level. By this, the students would more likely be able to receive excellent recommendation letters. Most of the professors are very challenging, and they make you work for your grade. To increase your grades, the supplemental instruction sessions aid the students understanding of a topic. These sessions take place on the second floor of the library. Also, the third floor of the library offers great places to study because silence is required.

2 College Junior

Academics: Some teachers are awesome, but others made me dread going to class.
