3 College Senior

Academics: You have some professors that are there to teach you, and others just there for a pay check. Sometimes, if you do not care about your education, then the will professor will not care. But you do have professors that will try to push you to work hard. The registration process is pretty easy.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Academics are an important factor in the college experience for the students, community, and university. Academics reflect on how well the professors are doing their jobs and the amount the students are maintaining. Professors are demanding and believe their classes are the only important classes on campus. Your lectures and workloads only support this theory. At least 70 percent of the professors have an advanced degree. a low student-teacher ratio allows the student to maintain close relationships with their professors.

The University offers online classes to assist the campus community. Online classes are helpful for students who may not be able to commute back and forth to campus, nontraditional students who have outside careers and family, or students who have a heavy load. All classes are not offered online, though, so be sure to check course offerings.
