2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Computer Science is only offered from Fort Wayne IN, so all classes that go toward that major must be taken online in the Blackboard study sessions in the evening. It is a huge pain IMO. The transfer degrees are constantly changing, and the academic advisers are being given the information late, resulting in students having to take very similar classes over again for a new science or math credit. ("Bio 101" does not count for the new program that is ultimately better and more reliable then the old program, so you now have to take "Bio 105" and "Bio 107") You are locked into degree programs when you first start, guaranteeing you the degree you work for, but if a new one comes around you better just pray you can fit into it if you are not perfectly on par with your current one. This is not their faults, but the faults of the higher ups that are pulling all the strings. The instructors are good for the most part, but because of the set up of the class, I was not able to get actual help on some projects because I had no classmates to work with. The most helpful advice I was given when I was struggling with the work was to "read the chapter in the book". Its not much help when you don't know what is wrong and why your code is not working. I suppose this system is fine if you are already good at this, or are pretty smart about learning to code already, but if not, you are going to have a bad time.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: My major is general studies which isn't super exciting, but many of the electives I've been able to take have been very interesting. The workload is lighter than other majors which is great. Great program for starting out or looking to transfer and get your core classes out of the way.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am just starting my program this fall. But from meeting with them and the way they separated my class load was really good.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I chose to do a transfer program for Business Administration. The general classes all flowed together with my business core classes. In every single class I took I feel that it has prepared me a little more for my future endeavors. The work load was reasonable but had to be earned. There was projects, papers, experiments, and so much more.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: You get a good hold on what you are learning about because of the hands-on experience used for the learning process.
