3 College Junior

Academics: On-campus courses are good; Online versions are only OK.

3 College Junior

Academics: Not too involved on campus. Commuter student.

4 College Junior

Academics: I've had a wonderful experience with everything so far. Even if you get a difficult professor, there is a lot of free on-campus help you can get to keep you going. My only complaint is with getting the classes you need. I have yet to have a semester go by where I didn't have a major issue with finding the classes I need.

4 College Junior

Academics: Love the program. The professors are tough, but they will help you after class if you need it. People in the program are awesome. Engineering gets its own off-campus building, which is both awesome and inconvenient, depending on the situation. There are job/internship fairs every semester to help kickstart your career, and it's a welcome thing.

College Sophomore

Academics: Will know when I begin in the Fall of this year.
