What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Most freshman have to take the same classes. English, a math, Info 1100 (computer competency), and maybe some classes pertaining to your major. Collge classes are more difficult & more time consuming than high school classes! Make sure you manage your time well, and once again, use your professors! If you're having trouble, ask for assistance.

Right now i have a 3.4 yet I know I will raise that up with courage and strength. It is very hard for me but if I can do academically anyone can. Don't ever say can't!!!

While some classes really test my academic limits, others seem as if they're around high school level classes. Ask some upperclassmen to get their opinions on what you should take.

How hard the classes are really depends on what you take. If you take classes that seem simple then they probably will be, but if you take difficult classes be ready to work. I have taken several classes that are challenging. As challenging classes tend to be, they were also the most rewarding in terms of how much I learned and grew.
