What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
I cannot stress enough the importance of attending all of your classes. Only meeting 1-3 times a week, each time you meet your teacher will teach through 1-3 chapters. Yet, as a whole, the classes are manageable-they can be challenging but will not destroy your brain. Most classes will require that you study outside of class and that you invest in both group study sessions and tutoring. Luckily, the university offers free tutoring to all students in every subject.

i wish there was a way to choose 3.5 for academic rigor. the difficulty of your courses is what you make it. if you plan on being the bum in the back of the classroom that dozes off every ten minutes, is late to lecture, or doesn't do the assignments, then yeah, it will be tough. your professors are more than likely aware of your behavior, bad and good, and both have its payoffs. a positive attitude goes a long way also. when in the math department, an academic tutor is advised. many students complain about the instructors being foreign and difficult to understand. i had that issue both semesters my freshman year.
