5 College Junior

Academics: The academics at UCCS are great. The professors truly care about helping the students to make it through the program. They also keep an appropriate level of work going for their students and help whenever needed. The registration and interviewing process were incredible and made me want to be a part of this program even more.

Academics: I am studying for a Master's Degree in Clinical Counseling. The program that UCCS offers is the only one of its kind that I have seen here in Colorado. The students are encouraged to grow personally as well as professionally. The professors start working with the students during the first semester to prepare them for internships and job opportunities that will best fit where the student wants to go. The workload is just right for the program and the curriculum is interesting and engaging.

Academics: The professors are pretty great. They are knowledgeable, helpful, and (usually) fair. There are plenty of options to get further involved in your area of study, too.

Academics: I have really enjoyed most of the professors I have had at UCCS. The staff works hard to make sure that you are doing well, and really learning the material. Most professors give out there cell phone numbers so that you can contact them if you are struggling. I also think the professors have a great idea of what the appropriate workload is for a student. Like me, most students at UCCS have to work, and some even work full time. Professors know this, and while they still give homework, they are aware that our entire lives do not revolve around their class. The only complaint I have is the on-campus tutoring. In the business school, all of the tutors are students, and while some of them are good at what they do, many of them spend lots of time on their cell phones and are searching the internet. Even those who want to help, and have a good understanding of the material sometimes struggle with trying to teach it to someone else. This makes it frustrating for both the tutor and the student.

Academics: My major is Accounting. While I enjoy it, I feel like the accounting program is undervalued compared to the other programs. There are generally only a few classes a semester for Accounting, and many people get wait listed. Also, the times the classes are scheduled are less desirable. Last semester I had an adjunct professor teaching Acct. 2020. He was kind, but he didn't care whether or not we learned the material. A large majority of the class would do poorly on a test, and instead of trying to see where we did poorly and helping us understand, he would give everyone extra credit until the lowest grade scored was passing. He did this with every test. Many students were thrilled that they could pass the class without trying, but as an Accounting Major I was very upset that I was going into the next class without a firm idea of what this one was. I don't think an adjunct professor should be teaching such a crucial class.
