3 College Sophomore

Academics: I just changed my major from Nursing to Sport Management, but I think I am going to like the programs about the same because they will both hopefully help me in my near future.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: There many groups to be in. professors are nice. registration an easy process as long you stay on top the paper work

4 College Freshman

Academics: The workload for a psychology major is good and there are many internship opportunities to students. Classes are easy to get into, if you are on time and plan ahead to go online and register for classes.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I can't give five stars because I'm not all the way submerged into my major classes but I love the professor's involvement. They will help out if you ask the questions.

2 College Freshman

Academics: The registration process is terrible as a freshman. I was registered late my fall semester and no one knew about any classes and there were really none to pick from. Make sure you triple check to make sure you are taking the correct classes for your major!
