4 College Senior

Academics: The OT program is amazing and most of the health science are also. A bunch other the others are a joke

2 College Sophomore

Academics: If you're a health science major (nursing/OT/PT/AT) I hear its somewhat rigorous, but everything else is a joke. If you're pre-med, you're likely to wind up in PA school, or if you make med school, an offshore one, after which you'll have trouble getting a good residency. If you're business, you're either gonna be in auditing, or if you major in finance, you will never make it to real spots, only sales and ops. CAS, forget about it, and their career dept. I hear is non-existent. And thats sad because they actually have curious students there. Most people don't take class seriously, mad people bring their laptops to play games and Facebook on. Some of it also probably owes to the anti-intellectual atmosphere prevalent among students.

3 College Freshman

Academics: When registering for classes it can be a big hassle. I personally am not registering for my classes until Monday, April 14 and this is the last day that freshmen can register, not counting the make up days. It is very stressful and you always worry about classes closing.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The diagnostic medical sonography program is currently pending so I am still in the accelerated diagnostic imaging program which is extremely challenging but presents with a promising future upon graduating with the degree

4 College Student

Academics: I am a physical therapy major and I have been blessed so far with decent teachers and a decent workload. There are plenty of classes to choose from and many special study options that include graduate programs and study abroad options.
