4 College Sophomore

Academics: There have only been 2 professors that I did not like in my freshman year. The average workload is about 15 credits, but some students choose to do more or less. Registration can be irritating, especially when it is your first time and you don't know the program, the NSO members are very helpful though. SDSU hosts a study abroad fair that has places for everyone to go, no matter your major. We provide free tutoring and supplemental instructions which are very helpful to students, especially for harder classes.

4 College Junior

Academics: As long as students keep up, ask questions, and don't fall behind or lost in the work making the grade is a challenge but no impossible.

3 College Freshman

Academics: You have professors in most part that will help you. You have a few professors who don't care if you pass or fail. I feel that all school's first purpose should be the student. There are students who are very intelligent but may not test well or can not express themselves perfectly in essay form and some teachers take that into consideration but not all of them.

3 College Junior

Academics: Being in the Early Childhood Education major is quite enjoyable. We have many opportunities to gain experience that also in turn shows us that we are in the right field.

3 College Junior

Academics: Professors are always there to help us when we need it; they really do seem to care about their students. The workload is appropriate for each class, some requires more than others, but they also require more effort to understand in the first place.
