4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's a newer program for the school but I think it's great that they are offering something off the beaten path!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a science major, and the courses are pretty reasonable considering. The science teachers at NOVA are amazing, bio, physics, chem you name it but the advanced math required for this major can be tricky because majority of the math teachers make the already difficult subject, even more confusing. Always read the online reviews for those. The workload is manageable, there is a lot of studying but actual homework is mostly given in math oriented classes.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I do not know , only taking two years of community college then transfer.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The school and faculty work hard to provide us with the resources we need to succeed. The workload is practical but it also depends on how long your course is and if you're taking a program of study.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I've taken Physics, Mathematics, History, and now will take a Computer Science class. The intro to college classes, English, and gym all seemed a waste of time for me; however, the more difficult the type of class one takes the more likely to learn and become a more well-educated individual.
