What Students Are Saying

3.30 Average Rating
as an undergraduate institution, we actually offer an academic program more rigorous that several top tier institutions. more importantly, the faculty care immensely about the students and want to see us succeed. there are many more support systems in place as well (compared to a traditional college).

My first semester was a piece of cake - 15 credits, 4 100-level classes and 1 200-level modular class. I got 8 hours of sleep a night and had plenty of time for a social life. BUT my second semester was a nightmare - only 17 credits but I moved up to 1 300-level course, 3 200-level courses, and only 1 100-level course. I made sure not to plan my next semester with at least two 100-levels. Even in the first semester when my work was a piece of cake, the professors really make you think about things, it's not the cookie-cutter memorization and regurgitation of high school, and many of the professors will treat you like grad school students even though you're only a 16-year-old undergraduate. They're all SUPER nice, however, and most want to work with you to help you succeed so if you're not afraid to ask for help, you can definitely get it.

The classes are incredibly hard, but extremely worth it.

some weeks it's easy to become stressed with the amount of readings, worksheets, papers, etc. we sometimes have, but i always make it through alright and with time for extracurricular activities and downtime.
