5 College Sophomore

Academics: There are a lot of majors on our campus and the teachers and curriculum are pretty straight forward and are intended to help you, not trick you. I had complications and could enroll in classes until the day school started and was still able to get into classes I needed.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love my major! I was not exactly sure what Sociology was until I took my class my first semester. I was really interested in what the class had to offer. I learned many things about humans that I now am able recognize. The workload, however, was very time-consuming. We had an essay every other week based on required reading research articles, Luckily, some of the articles were interesting enough to pull through a few assignments.
