What Students Are Saying

3.42 Average Rating
Just enough. Of course some courses are more challenging than others. Some professors ask for more than others. Howard teaches you how to balance life and play. Some schools force you to focus only on work that when they get out into the world on their own they struggle to find a balance. Some schools allow you to have too much fun and we all know how detrimental that would be to you're success. Howard is practice for the real world.

Depending on your major, classes vary in difficulty level. Every school has a rigorous major, and its up to you to take courses that will continue to challenge you. Don't go for the FREE-BEES! Staying challenged will keep the intelligent motivated.
Michael from Algonquin, IL
Math department is not the best.

Classes can be difficult but you have some of the most caring teachers anywhere. They really care about whether you learn or not, more than your average professor. They expand the way you think and really let the knowledge change and grow you.
