Seeing and hearing a lot of thing about the college, i think it's very challenging but they will help you but you have to be willing to seek out the help and not wait for them to see you struggling and not doing anything about it. You have to make it known that you want to be there.

While attending the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, I had a great experience. The teachers were very welcoming and there were many people that were willing to help me as a freshman through my first year of college. Even with classes there were many opportunities for help, such as tutors, class group study sessions which really helped me through out my journey.
