So far I did not have any major problems with my professors or on their teachings. You going to encounter boring classes, but that's normal throughout our academic years. Some teachers may have an accent making it difficult to understand, but that's why their is tutors to help you out and you also may have friends that can help you too.

i am a double major in international political economy and diplomacy and religion and politics and feel as though my classes were pretty challenging. not every class is crazy intense though, but i had a 50-page thesis my senior year, and lots of papers, debates, projects providing academic challenges.

Honestly, it's college. Harder than high school but not quite real life yet. Some assignments are challenging, some you can get done in one night. Some professors allow you time to turn them in late, some will not. Your best bet is doing them ahead of time and getting them in on the respective due date. Study hard and always check with your syllabus.

The academic side of the school is great. Depending on your major classes can be hard or easy.
Allan from Passaic, NJ
The professors are caring and knowledgeable. It's not easy by any means, which means you will know your stuff when you are done! I've learned so much and can't wait to learn more the further I get in my educational career.

Providing you initially with an 11k scholarship, University of Bridgeport instantly puts your academics first as it should. By doing this they set priorities and expectations for you to commit to. My learning experience at UB by far has been the most thorough in helping me achieve my career. Many classes provide strict course rules to create that responsibility that many slackers need in order to be able to have a pleasurable learning experience. Courses range from difficulty and push the students to study their hardest in order to excel in the class. Teachers vary from lenient to harsh, but the variety is what makes everyone's experience different. I can say that from the lenient teachers you learn the best possible ways to survive college efficiently and the harsh teachers have you learn the effort crunch time requires you to put in. All in all it helps you understand that at the end of the day, the degree you earn is more than just a piece of paper; its a symbol of all that you have come to learn thanks to outstanding performance and knowledge you've embraced.
