The University has a very good reputation regarding the quality of education the students receive, but some would say that quality has dwindled over the past few years. There are a lot of professors here who have no idea what they are doing or who make their classes way too hard. Of course, there are always going to be the good and bad professors, so you will just have to do the best with what you get. Some majors are stronger than others, but no matter where you go, there will always be those professors that no one likes.
Many of the professors do know what they are talking about, and are very intelligent. Many try to make connections with their students. Good relationships are usually formed between the student and the professor. You are not just a number here like some other larger schools. Professors know your name and enjoy talking with you. The workload all depends on what classes you take, and the professors you have. Sometimes professors will treat their three-credit class like a five-credit class and require you to do a lot of work. Others are very easy and do not even bother with having you read the textbook. Talking with your adviser will clear many problems up and will set you on the right track to graduate.
