4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

4 College Junior

Majors: The only problem I had was organizing my transfer credits. Once I had the transferred credits in order, it was a very easy process to finish my pre-requisites and get into the program. There is no wait-list for the nursing program and once a student finishes her pre-requisites she is able to start the nursing program.

5 College Junior

Academics: The classes are great, and very applicable to the real world. The professors go out of their way to help students and make themselves available for appointments and assist with tutoring if necessary. The registration process takes a little planning but is pretty self-explanatory.

5 College Junior

Academics: Nursing is one of the largest majors on campus and has a very well-organized program. The program includes 5 clinical rotations, which is more than most bachelor's programs, and gives the students more opportunity to gain experience before graduation.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are very few guys. Typical student dress ranges based on religious background, comfort and trends. I do not live on campus so I am unaware of most of the happenings

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have yet to have a bad instructor, the course content and work-load makes sense for the course being taken. Any time I have ever had an issue, the instructor was more than willing to meet and help with anything I needed. Class sizes are perfect, you're not in a room of 10 people but you're not in a giant lecture hall either, and you really get to know your classmates.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I was a transfer student from a University of Wisconsin system school and I never knew I actually qualified for scholarships, the financial aid staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. I received multiple scholarships that I didn't even know existed.

3 College Junior

Administration: I have not run into any problems yet. It seems like they have everyone held at standards that are attainable and that everyone can follow.

Greek Life: There is no greek life.

5 College Freshman
