What Students Are Saying

3.40 Average Rating
The rigor of the academic programs here depends on your major. Design majors as well as science- and math-heavy majors like Engineering, Pre-Med, and Physician Assistant Studies have very intense curricula and often find themselves spending many late nights in studio or in the library. This is true among these majors at any college, however.

General education classes (Writing I and II, math courses, etc.) are largely comparable to Honors and AP classes in High School (although I found some easier than my High School courses). This is fitting, though. We want you to focus most of your attention on the classes within your major - after all, that's what you're here for!

The classes are fast paced and small class sizes make your relationship with the professor very personal. It is very important to stay in contact with professors and make a name for yourself. Always show up to class because it is a smaller school with small class sizes so if you skip it is noticeable.
