3 College Sophomore

Academics: As a Communication major there are several options I have. I can go into advertising, film and tv production, video editing, computers, public relations, and various media sources. There is a lot of work that goes into it but not too much and I believe it's worth it.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The workload outside of class is challenging, but manageable. However, students who maintain jobs have a challenge.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There is a lot of course work for nursing compared to the other majors. But regardless of all the studying, I still am glad I am in my major because it will get me to the future I want to have.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics here at the school are good. The professors take their jobs seriously though they try to make their teachings interesting. When registering for a class you got to be quick about it or you'll be put on the waitlist if you sign up late. When on the waitlist it depends on where you are in the line if you'll get into the class. Those who are first on the waitlist have a higher chance. For studying people usually come to the library and either sit at one of the tables or books a study room.

5 College Junior

Academics: The Sports Medicine and Strength and Conditioning department is a great program that has a lot of qualified instructors that help you get ready for the next step.
