5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are always willing to work with you.

3 College Senior

Academics: The Social Work Grad school wasn't as good as the undergrad program.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I have had the opportunity to be involved with multiple different programs with academics. But I have also had to really study in some of my classes. The academics at this school are great.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It really depends on the major that you are pursuing. Some professors love their job and love what they teach and it shows. Others are tough and don't like what they do and those classes usually tend to be the hardest in my opinion. However those that are willing to work with you are more than willing to push you and if you're on the edge of a B and an A they are willing to give you the A just because you put forth the effort to go see them during their office hours.
