4 College Sophomore

Academics: Some classes are very difficult, however the classes are very manageable and enjoyable

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There is a learning center that has tutors and the library where u can study in silence or the "blue room" which is quiet but not completely silent and every floor of every dorm has a study room

4 College Junior

Academics: Its okay, the classes i've taken so far have some useful real life implications. The workload seems to be more hands on/learn from doing then read and regurgitate. Textbooks aren't necessary in many classes. The professors I've met so far have all been great and have helped me a lot, however you won't find many research opportunities here, so if you want some experience for grad school you'll need to dig for research programs at other colleges.

5 College Junior

Academics: I lvoe the freedom of my major (Art History) to be able to take other classes, especially the art course. I am able to have 2 minors with my major as well. My advisor is wonderful, and the workload is not overbearing. With many museums in the area internships are available, expecially in the school museums.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Being an Audio-radio production major is exciting to me though I plan to combine it with television production. I love the classes that are required by my major I'm looking forward to completing them all. The workload is worth it for these classes, but gen ed's on the other hand not so much. I don't mind if my professor gives me a speech to write and present because I find it worth the time. Other unnecessary classes required for my general requirements are just an annoyance. There are many places such as the speech lab or tutoring center where I can get help. My professors also offer to help me. I haven't looked into internships and job opportunities yet.
