Academics: The Nursing program is very good and they actually have one of the biggest Nursing programs in the area which is also a challenge to be a part of.

Academics: I love that I am studying to become a Nurse because its my passion and I hope to graduate from this University in three years.

Academics: Registration can be frustrating as it would likely be at most schools. As a transfer I require overrides everytime that I do registration which delays the process and affects my chances of getting into the sections that I want/need. The work load can be a bit much at times. But time management and careful planning helps ease the blows. Study rooms in the library go quickly, especially when only 1 or 2 people take up an entire room. However, computers and printers almost always available. There are a lot of non-study room tables too. And many buildings have their own computer labs with printers so the library isn't the only option. There is a Starbucks located in the library too.

3 College Senior

Academics: Biology majors don't usually write too many papers. Instead we have regular labs and lab reports, sometimes on a weekly basis. Tutors for all subjects are available. Hours put forth for classes can be a bit much. Simple memorizations won't get you by. In addition to the usual core classes, some math and chemistry is also required.

5 College Senior

Academics: Professors care about their students and always asking how to improve their teaching skills.
