I really enjoy the smaller class size. I like being able to approach the instructors with questions one on one. The area in which a change needs to be made is with the advisors. They need some guidance on how to be more helpful.

Professors do not "clarify" us students that we "get it".....even when personally addressed, most don't seem to "care"
