5 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are great at this school because everyone is goal oriented. It's easy to learn and easy to succeed with the professors.

5 College Junior

Academics: I have learned so much! Academics are great, and I love the excuse to take theology classes. They were more accepting and open than the overall campus, you really got to tackle hard theological stuff. I wish the whole campus and administration was like that. My proffessors are great, my classes are great, and there are lots of great places to study or hang with friends. We just got a space for commuters, and that helps. Workload can be very heavy, but it's all interrelated and not one assignment is ever a waste of time!

Academics: The academics offered at my school are very challenging, but it is not unconquerable. Professors are extremely supportive and understanding. The most popular study areas are the library, the rec center, and Common Grounds (coffee shop).

Academics: My professors either have worked or are currently working in the field they are teaching. I feel that they are very knowledgable about their subject, and they care about me as an individual.

If anyone has trouble the professors are there to offer their help in any way possible. registration is simple to do and the workload is always manageable beings you choose things yourself. It is also helpful that our academic advisors are there to answer any questions we may have.
