What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Many of the classes are hard, but easy when you work hard. The professors expect the best out of their students. Many professors are amazing, but some seem to not care about their students.

Professors at Slippery Rock challenge students to open their mind and take classes to explore what they want to do in the future. Grades are based mainly on exams and some projects. If a student is willing to put in the effort then they will succeed academically.
Taylour from Bainbridge, PA
Classes in college need to be taken seriously; make sure you study. The best way to know you have learned something is to own the content. Be able to apply what you have learned in class in everyday life or conversation.
Cassidy from Zelienople, PA
My major classes were quite hard. I never felt like I couldn't complete a task but I also never felt like my classes were too easy. Very balanced.
Minndee from Ellwood City, PA
I'm glad that Slippery Rock is not a school with easy courses. There may be some here, but as a biology major, all my core courses challenge me in different ways and I'm thankful for that. If my classes were easy I wouldn't be learning anything. Challenging classes makes the brain work harder. I like having my brain exercised and pushed to it's limits. Though some courses may be difficult, the staffing is amazing and makes the whole process and enjoyable experience.
Elyssa from Tuckerton, NJ
The classes at SRU can be pretty challenging, depending on the subject. Personally, I have found that the liberal studies courses are very manageable and it is not difficult to receive an A. As far as the science and math classes go, however, there is much more effort required and the information is at a heightened difficulty. The professors make themselves easy to reach, though, and tutoring is available so you can receive help if you need it.
