Academics: My psychology curriculum is great and flexible for when interships and community service hours. The profesors in the field are extremely helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Depending on your department, workload can vary. I am in Psychology, we do not do a lot of paper work.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I just had to switch majors. They stopped offering computer science which was my origional major. So this semester I will start learning about it. So i really can not answer this question that much because I will just start working on it.
