5 College Sophomore

Academics: Teachers in my field are terrific - classes have been fairly easy to get into when I want/need them.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: One of the best schools for Social Work ................they have their own dept. w/in the school and adjunct professors, so they can tell you what's really going on in that field.

3 College Junior

Academics: I love most of the teachers I have had. However some of the teachers they hire form other schools are not the best. I would prefer if the teachers of classes did not get changed at the last minute.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Great for teaching, there is an elementary school on campus to do your student teaching in. Great connections to jobs.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Most classes I have experienced here have good professors that know what they are talking about. Some professors are very smart, however, and do not know what level to teach introductory classes.
