Like I've said, I love my first semester's professors. They were all pretty friendly and helpful. All but the computer professor (of course) have a strong objection to electronics in the classroom, though, which I thought was a bit odd. I understand prohibiting cell phones in class. I do not understand prohibiting tablets or laptops, even if you're using them to take notes. Luckily I have accommodations to take notes electronically--otherwise, I'd be up a certain creek without a paddle. Most high schools use iPads or some other tablet/laptop now, in the classroom, so students coming in are obviously used to that; why prohibit it now? Anyway, the courses I took were great. Their quality was more or less impeccable. Class sizes are GREAT--usually 20-30. As to variety...their catalog says that French and German classes are available, but they're actually not, because they don't have anyone to teach them; as a result, the only available foreign language course is Spanish. I am tired of Spanish being the only language both offered and/or required in all schools, not just college. It's time to break out into other linguistic areas!

Overall, my first semester was phenomenal. I love all the professors I had and enjoyed the classes. The food in the cafeteria ranges from "not that great" to "really pretty good" depending on what you get (for example, the lo mein noodles are terrible, the pizza is "meh," and the fries, turkey pot pie, and strawberry shortcake are great). I also love the small campus. If you're out of shape like me, it doesn't seem all that small, especially the big hill down to the lower end of the campus, and the abundance of stairs and lack of elevators is a workout; but really it's a very small campus. I would most definitely choose this school again. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the academics could be a little more rigorous--then again, I'm sure when I take my required math class, I'll be singing a different song!

Classes are usually small. Maybe around 15-20 students. Each professor has their own individual teaching style; it really depends on the student if it helps them learn or not. Some professors just lecture, some lecture while you take notes, and others involve you in class discussions. In my personal experience, 99% of my professors were extremely helpful and friendly when I needed help on anything. Also, most professors are extremely strict about cell phones, and they won't hesitate to kick you out of class if they catch you or just cancel class altogether. Canceling may seem ideal, but it won't if you needed those lecture notes for an upcoming test that week.
