So far I have been very impressed with the care and compassion of the professors here. The grounds are kept well and the classrooms are hardly ever overcrowded, and when they are overcrowded they are always for popular classes so sign up as soon as possible to guarantee your spot in the class!

The class size varies between subject but I haven't been in a class where it was overwhelmingly large. The classes are usually adaptable and enable everybody to learn. There is a large variety of classes that you could take at this school and almost all can be applied to whatever degree you're trying to attain one way or another. I've had both good and bad experiences with professors at this school. I've had one professor that has been incredible and whom I've learned a lot from. I could really apply things learned in his class to real life as well as my academic future. I've also had a professor who wasn't my favorite and strayed from the syllabus and class description a lot. A lot of useless, irrelevant information was given and it was honestly a waste of time. Professors are really hit and miss but most of them are really great and want to help you learn. They make themselves available to you.

Even though my math class was in seat, she forced us to pay $100 to turn in any homeworks, quizzes and tests she assigned. She did not let us use any calculators for the class and was gone for most of the semester but somehow she believed we could teach ourselves advanced algebra. Many teachers who provide online courses are unforgiving, mess up their own assignments but expect the students to adhere to their word even though the teacher messed it up. DO NOT TAKE ONLINE COURSES HERE!!!
