3 College Sophomore

Academics: My major is for the generic pre-med students. There are tons of students with my same major. The College of Arts & Sciences is extremely helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academic is nice, I just believe some of the classes can be hard. There are some teachers who will help you and some who might not, but you can always ask and receive help.
