3 College Junior

Academics: Nobody is there for the academics, so the classes are easy fly-bys if you have any IQ at all. The labs are what kills your GPA- you can try your hardest and give it all of your free time and still walk away with a C

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors and courses are very interesting.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics at JWU is great, classes are a challenge. The schools have tutors, small classes and the advisers that can guide you through out the 3 terms. As a freshman from my experience the first year is a very challenging year, trying to coupe from being away from home for the first time. We are all given a course plan that will help us fulfill all requirements to finish our major according to the 4 year plan. From freshman year you start doing classes from your major!!, that is great.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics here are challenging. There are tutoring options if needed.

4 College Junior

Academics: It could be better. The labs are 9 days, which are fun but also do not allow you to remember quite everything you learn, since its such a short amount of time. But lovely, dedicated professors make it great.
