4 College Senior

Academics: Every major has a concentration directed to your goals.

5 College Senior

Academics: So many opportunities to grow and become well rounded in different courses.

4 College Student

Academics: Classes are good, each class size is small and most of the professors are really good. Work load varies for each professor but is tolerable. It is easy to get help at New Haven especially at the library and the center for learning recources (CLR).
