4 College Junior

Academics: I have had nothing but outstanding teachers in all my English and Education courses. A few of my English teachers don't teach in a style I like, but one I can respect because they are extremely knowledgeable.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The registration process is often very hectic. If you don't get to register on the first day there is a good chance you will not get into some of your classes. They don't allow all the seats to be filled so that makes it difficult when there are ten open seats and the class is closed. The university is known for business and education majors.

3 College Senior

Academics: I am currently majoring in Interactive Digital Studies and I truly enjoy the fact that the I am able to select two "bundles" within that major to focus on. The two bundles that I have selected are music technology and digital photography. You learn useful techniques that will come in handy when starting a career and will help you along your path to success.

4 College Freshman

Academics: i feel like I'm getting a great education at this school

4 College Freshman
