UP isn't easy, but neither is it challenging beyond all reason. If you pick your professors wisely and get a good study pattern down quick, then it gets much easier.
Micah from Gig Harbor, WA
Prepare to be challenged. Professors are more than willing to help you outside of class-- and with small class sizes and no T.A.'s, forming a personal relationship with them is very easy. There are many outside resources for academics as well.
Tori from Tacoma, WA
The academics are hard, because it is a private liberal arts school and the small class sizes make it difficult to skip class going unnoticed. The work load however is manageable and we have a brand new library on campus that is a great place to study.
Madison from Helena, MT
As bad as it sounds, coming into Freshman year I was terrified that UP would be too easy for me academically since I ranked much above the average SAT and GPA that the school listed. However, I have found that the classes offered at UP are of top quality and are just as academically rigorous as any other school. I have a friend who started off at UP, transferred to Georgetown, and then came back to UP and says the academic expectations are similar. I am enjoying my classes, learning a lot, and the professors really care about you. At UP you're not just a number and people really do care about your education.
