5 College Freshman

Academics: The professor's are very kind and are always willing to help!

4 College Junior

Academics: All of the faculty on campus are wonderful! Very helpful!

3 College Freshman

Academics: My university does not offer the major I want so I am planning on transferring next year. My selected major is film, but since they don't have it, I have been doing work with the theater group. While it is fun to be creative and act and sing and whatnot, the people in theater are very self absorbed and egos fly around like crazy. Even the professors are very egotistical at times. It's not the best major at this school, but you can still find enjoyment in it if you can bypass unwanted and unwarranted egos.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors, classes, and faculty at my university are some of the best I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. All the professors know their subject impeccably well and the classes themselves are relatively interesting. Workload is not much and if you find yourself encumbered by outstanding assignments, it is by no one's fault but your own.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are very good here at USCA. The teachers really care about you and care about you learning. Communication is important in classes because it is more personal that most colleges due to size.
