3 College Junior

Academics: The physics department is lacking tremendously. The drop fail rate is horrendous and taking the class itself feels like a waste of time because the teachers just don't care. If someone didn't understand something (which usually was the entire class) it was shrugged off and class resumed. Class even had questions through out the class to check understanding and even when everyone missed them, questions were not entirely explained. However, for my major (Biology) There are a massive number of classes to take and many opportunities for internships and research study classes.

Academics: It depends on the classes you take, the physics professors act like they don't care if you're alive or dead. However, the chemistry teachers are amazing and the math teachers were extremely helpful. It would be nice if my adviser was a little more helpful but I am used to obtaining information on my own research.

Academics: You have to be the best of the best and show how much of a hard worker you are. I like this because it gives us the chance to show our strengths.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There is a lot of hard work that goes into getting your college education but I believe hard work pays off. You would never regret working hard even when the workload is to much to handle.
