4 College Senior

Academics: The academics aspect of this school is great all around. While some majors and departments are stronger than others, most are certainly up to par. There is a huge backup when all students are trying to register online, and it is often difficult to find space in a class. The campus center is a great study area, and a lot of students utilize it!

5 College Senior

Academics: The College of Education is full of professors who are passionate about what they teach. The entire college is extremely supportive and inclusive. They hope to help shape the next generation of teachers.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots of classes and majors to choose from.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration process can be a bit confusing at times and if you're an underclassman, you had better have a backup schedule in case all of the classes you want get filled. Most professors are really cool and seem to care about their students. Workload is never too much, and there are always study areas and groups going on in the libraries that you can join.

4 College Junior

Academics: As a music education major, I find that the program my school has created is very lively. The music setting is fun and lively and the facilities we have available are always being updated!
