What Students Are Saying

4.31 Average Rating
One of my good friends once said I remember when I was good in school. [look of nostalgia]. The classes are not impossible and most of the truly difficult ones are graded on curves or a similar accommodation but they are challenging. Overcoming those challenges, though, and passing classes with fairly decent grades are accomplishments in and of themselves. If you are used to straight As, do NOT expect to get them here with the same with which you did in high school. The classes are tougher and until you learn to accommodate your study habits to that new level of academic rigor, you'll have to settle for getting B's and C's and focusing on improvement and understanding instead of a specific letter grade to make you happy in your classes.

don't miss a class, attend every lecture you can and enjoy every minute. get to know everyone you can because the next bill gates, steve jobs or andrew luck may be your study buddy.
