    Some of the professors have a tendency to teach as if their students are still in high school. Most, however, actually do teach at a college level and are very knowledgeable in their particular field. The distribution courses may take away from credits you could be using toward your major for the first two or three semesters, but after that, the classes get a lot better. Professors have set office hours for students to come in and discuss any problems they may be having, and are willing to work with anyone who is making an effort to do well. Take advantage of these opportunities if you want to keep from falling behind or want to get ahead. read full review
