Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, the academics at the University of the District of Columbia are very serious, and it’s important that students stay on top of their school assignments and projects. Regardless of whether your professors are nice or mean, you will come away learning something that can help you in your future. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of variety in the number of full-time professors at UDC, so you might not have the choice but to take a class with a professor you’d rather not. But, luckily, the majority of students say the teachers here are generally accessible and knowledgeable.

Most UDC students—at least the ones who want to graduate on time—are more into their academics than the social scene. Some students even take 16 credits a semester. There are also great opportunities to get experience outside the classroom through opportunities like STEM internships and other types of paid fellowships.
