4 College Sophomore

Academics: The teachers here are mostly great. There are some exceptions like at every school, but almost every teacher i have had is very attentive to students needs and very willing to help out where needed.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is hard, but it is a good program.

3 College Student

Academics: There is not much diversity in the faculty.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I honestly think it is the best because as a social work major there are many opportunities to volunteer and be apart of the community.

College Senior

Academics: As the Criminal Justice program has just been added, it is starting up and running smoothly, but has limited resources yet. The professors are great, and they are well connected, but the program just isn't quite on it's feet yet. It will get there soon, and the possibility to have great opportunities will be there soon also.
