4 College Freshman

Academics: The students tend to be more motivated but less competitive than other college students I've encountered. No one is running around showing off their great grades or fantastic study habits. It's not that it's not cool, it's just that no one cares because we're all here to do our best; that's a given. If you're not doing well, however, that's not cool. I definitely don't know anyone who is proud to tout their failing grades. You're wasting everyone's time in class, and your money, if that's how you want to treat college and everyone knows it.

The actual academics are challenging but not impossible. What makes them hard to completely fail is the fact that professors won't let you... as long as you're willing to take the time to come ask for help. I have had one economics professor make a deal with me after I came in asking for help. If I got an A on the final, I would get an A in the class. Handouts are definitely not given here but this was a case of, "I know you're studying. You have the basic concepts, just not the details. And you've come in asking for help, so I'm going to help in a way that requires you to meet me 3/4 of the way." I would say that is the general mindset of most professors here. Meet them 3/4 of the way and they will help you out if you're struggling. If you don't try, they definitely won't try either. I love that about our professors.

The only thing here is that I generally feel the students are lethargic about their studies. I don't see a lot of passion for their major. It could be that I'm a freshman and most of the classes I've taken are mainly intro courses and general studies classes but I wish that students here showed more passion for learning. Being motivated to get a good grade is one thing, having a passion for learning is quite another.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Interesting courses, but not very challenging. Professors care about students and their work. I am a fine arts major and the art culture on campus is virtually non-existent.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Workload is extremely manageable. Not very challenging academically.
