4 College Freshman

Academics: I obtain the exact information iI'm looking for and am suppose get.

4 College Freshman

Academics: They offer most major interest and help to assist in deciding the major if undecided.

3 College Senior

Academics: The professors who teach the courses for my major are some of the best professors on the entire campus. People who don't even have my major would agree. The workload is heavy but definitely possible to maintain. My university should put more money toward the Psychology department so we could have many more opportunities and supplies.

3 College Senior

Academics: The professors are great. The better the professor, the more challenging the curriculum but there is a lot of help offered.

5 College Senior

Academics: Our nursing program focuses so much on critical thinking and preparing our students. It is the reason I continued my education at this university. The program is incredibly difficult, but doable. And in the end, it is all worth it. We have great classes with numerous great professors that really connect with the students. The workload and reading is horrendous, especially when all the professors assign due dates around the same time, but not impossible. We could really afford to spice up our Student Nursing Association club though. And our professors and department are always keeping an eye out for special jobs and internships for us despite their busy schedules.
