3 College Sophomore

Academics: I initially graduated with a BS in Marine Biology. What a great major! However, the funding is lacking and the faculty is not ideal. Now I am doing geotechnical engineering in graduate school. The funding is better for the department and the faculty are great too. Although it is a very rigorous graduate major, the faculty and students in the engineering department make it fun and exciting to continue and learn.

Academics: As diverse as the population of the campus, are the variety of academics. Depending on your interests you can at least find a minor to meet your needs.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The school is about the same as any other. I have no complaints. I have had some professors that do not work with my learning style but that is expected anywhere you go. The classes are nice. It would be better if there were a few more classes offered at different times though. There are a wide variety of other study options that can help you further your study. I plan to partake in the study abroad program to further my education.
