it's a hard school, depending on your major of course but, there is no denying it so prepare yourself. people always say that the first year is the hardest but it isn't your first year will fly by and everything will be fine and dandy, but beware of the third year as you will be taking the same number of credit hours, but these classes will be very hard and all will require hours of hard work and you probably will not have time for all of it. this is where time management is key. in university one must make the decision of when to choose one class over another in order to prevail in both.

Academic rigor really depends on what major you're going in to. If you want to be an engineer, be prepared for long hours spent on homework and group projects. Non-engineering STEM majors can also be quite rigorous. If you want a good education but you can't handle the workload, look at Technology majors instead of the standard Engineering majors. Remember that learning centers are located all over campus and your instructor is always there to help.

There are one or two freshman weed-out classes but professors are overall personally invested in the success of the class.
Tessa from Waunakee, WI
Some classes, primarily gen. ed., are super easy at Tech, but many of the core classes in the engineering disciplines become incredibly intense. This understandably varies by instructor, but overall the subject matter covered in a majority of courses is difficult in nature. The hardest part of many classes is the lack of actual instruction that many professors do. You will have several classes in which you need to teach yourself all of the material from the book.
