4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is a difficult major to get into at my school. The workload and program is challenging, but they are very up front with the students on what to expect.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The students are asked to give their feedback on the professors, which is taken into account by the school.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a Nursing major. All of my classes are what I expected it be and more. I haven't taken anything that is irrelevant to my major. I love clinical and I learn so much from it. I workload is extremely difficult. You need to know how to manage your time wisely.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I wish the professors were more organized. There are so many professors that tell everyone different things. The teachers are very willing to work with you. They offer hours to help students who need it. The teachers are very hands on with the students when it comes to clinical.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am in the Physical Therapist Assistant program. The class size is very small which really helps with learning. We have a fun class experience and the teachers are so awesome. They make every class period fun and involve us in hands on activity. There is never a dull moment in the class! The class work is also very appropriate and does not consume all of your time but teaches you the main aspects you need to know.
