What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
This is my second institution and by far the education I have received here is the best. The professors are all top of the line. Because the class sizes are usually no bigger than 25,you can always find a few minutes after or before class to talk to your teacher. Also, you can be sure to build up a close relationship with professors because they want to know how you are doing not only in their class but your others classes. The course work is challenging, but in a good way. It challenges you not to only think about the course you are in, but to think outside of the box and into the future. Our 4 pillars are Community, Faith, Leadership, and Discovery. You can be sure that you will experience that here and then some.

the core curriculum is rigorous, yet easy to follow. the classes you take your freshman year can be fun or be boring, depending on the professor. you will be given a lot of work, including things like worksheets, weekly papers, journal entries, etc. i recommend that, if you come here, you study very hard and keep on track with work. don't let yourself get behind!

I haven't started classes yet, I only have the knowledge of upper classmates.
Lesley from Baltimore, MD
There is not so much a push on the work handed out, but rather in what is expected from the student, as the teachers expect that the student will do their best, and follow the assignments and study the notes, which is enough to pass. In addition there is always help available for the subjects, mitigated only by the amount of people seeking the same for themselves.
Robert from Ijamsville, MD
There are certainly some classes that are easy and take little effort, but for the most part, most classes require work. As you get into the upper levels, the course work will definitely get harder, and you won't do well if you don't put the effort in.

Depends on your major. The sciences are tough, just work hard and you'll go far.
