3 College Freshman

Academics: It is hard and some of the teachers are not helpful at all.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are many options for classes, but also many teachers that do not seem willing to help or happy to be there.

2 College Freshman

Academics: Unless you're from some back woods, duck hunting, inbred town, the academics here are laughable.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love being an accounting major. the workload is not too much and not too little

4 College Freshman

Academics: Engineering is very hard and weeds out a lot of people, but I'm learning a lot.
