There are classes ranging from several hundred students to just a handful. It is easy to contact teachers and have them help you in the courtesy of their own office. There are also help rooms for several of the math and science classes where you can get help from your peers and staff. Most of the classes are appropriately challenging and have good professors.

    This is the most beautiful campus I've ever seen; wake up every day to mountains and fresh air! Study what you love in a place that you love, but don't slack off. Like most places the course work can be rigorous, especially if you don't pay attention or go to class, and you're probably paying a lot of money for that privilege.

    This school though thought of to be a party school has high hopes for their academics. The teachers don't slack on the hard in depth elements in there classroom. Also there are so many tutors or ways to get help from Raps and programs in the dorms to constant help rooms that are almost always open.
