1 College Junior

Academics: This school is an educational joke. WSU is the equivalent of getting a degree from Phoenix University or Heritage College.

3 College Junior

Academics: There is a lot to do, but the education is typically very valuable and the teachers (again typically) care about their students and want to help them to succeed.

3 College Student

Academics: When teachers say "it'll be easy" do not assume they mean "it will be quick."

3 College Senior

Academics: It's okay. That's really all there is to say about it.

5 College Senior

Academics: Most of my professors have been reasonable and human about assignments, homework, topics, and curriculum. There are some that I have had that were whack and very strict about keeping students inside a box (Only wanted 200 word essay, but 205 and you'd need to redo the assignment)...but for the most part instructors are good.
