What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
I am swamped every day- and I love it! This entirely depends on the courses you choose, but every course will have you working and writing actively every single day. It's also a different way of thinking- you need to really study diligently and actively. By that I mean you must know your material for the sake of learning- and let your grades come naturally- and not because you are defensively stressed about a test, paper, quiz etc. If you do this, you'll be stressed and significantly more unhappy every day.

The work can be challenging, but the teachers always make themselves available; and if necessary would go back through the work.
