Some of my professors know my name, mostly my art professors because there are smaller class sizes. I love my art history class because it is discussion based and my professor maintains a good interest level in the class. Class participation depends on the class, in my statistics class few people want to speak up unless forced to, this is uncommon though. Most of the students ask questions and participated in the lecture. I have taken many interesting classes and cannot decide on one unique one but I really enjoyed my 20th century modern European art history, typography (graphic design) and psychology. I rarely spend time with my professors outside of class. Sometimes I feel like some of the classes are too easy and requirements are not strict enough, but overall I am happy with my experience. I did wish that our graphic design program was more strenuous and all-encompassing. I have friends across the country in graphics programs and they are more prepared for the real world than I am and that is a huge deal in my competitive field.
A few of the professors at CSU know my name. My favorite classes so far have delt with Social Work. I study just in time for tests. Class participation is common in classes that aren't 400 students big. There are a few students that have intellectual conversations outside of class. I know my friends and myself are pretty competitive. The most unique class i've taken is social work for substance abusers. my major is accounting, and because I transferred with a 2.9 I cant take a lot of the classes I need for an accounting degree. I don't spend any time with teachers outside of class yet. I understand CSU's requirements, but there should be some exceptions, or maybe a loop hole for people to work the system. Some classes are geared towards getting a job, and some towards learning, it depends on your teacher.
All of the classes are very educating. I took appreciation of art thinking it would be an easy blow off class but it was actually very educational and interesting as well. The same went for Astronomy which i never thought i would take but the lab was the coolest thing since it was on top of one of the buildings at night and we just looked at the sky through telescopes!
csu has a great CM program, a great Vet program, agriculture program, and business school
study at least 2 hours for every hour of class
All of my professors usually have very convenient times, and are willing to help.
The most unique class i have taken would be Human Clothing and Adornment Behavior. The class learned about stereotypes of dress, why people wear what they do, and how styles have changed throughout time to fit the culture we live in. I would recomend people to take it because it has some very interesting topics.
I know my professors names and they generally know mine unless it's in a big lecture hall. I Love my department. The Economics staff is great, and the Women's Student department is awesome and unique.
The education here is really geared toward getting a job after school. This is excellent in its own way. The come up with ways for you to get interns and co-ops while you are attending. This is the greatest part at CSU i believe.
I think that the academics at CSU are wonderful. Every class that I have taken has been enjoyable with great yeachers or professors and they take there job very seroiusly. The only thing I have had problem with is the Math Dept. I am currently taking M130 and it is a pain in the butt and it doenst seem very efficient at all.
Professors here seem to care quite a bit about thyeir students. i never really have professors here that know my name, unless it is a small class.
Academics at CSU are very good I think. The professors are all pretty good that I have had anyway. Class participation is ver common depending on what class it is. I feel that the requirements for graduation are very reasonable. I think they prepare you well for a job.
The class sizes range from 300+ person to 10 people. Its a good mixture to find new ways to learn.
Classes are good sized, maybe a little large for Freshman level courses. Most assignments are written not multiple choice which I really enjoy. You learn a lot more from writing a paper than taking a scantron.
The professors would like to know everyone but with the classes as big as they are it is almost impossible for them to get to know students. The professors want to help the students as much as they can. They have office hours so the student can come to the professor and recieve one on one attention.
Class are hard adn rigurous and the professors really know a lot about their topics.
Most do know my name or at least that I am a familiar face. Marketing would be my favorite class and CIS is the least favorite. CSUand the curriculum is geared toward straining the mind and preparing you for the business world.
I have not encountered any proffesors out side of classes. Students here are very competative.
profs are great, career potential is amazing, and our reputation will get me far. students are not competitive. my major is landscape horticulture and its reputation is incredible. my advisor/prof is more than helpful.
I think its kind of hard for professors to know their students names, unless you are in a smaller class. I think if you want the professor to know you then you need to go to office hours and let them get to know you and ask for help. They have so many studnets they have to get to know. Smaller classes and classes for your major however I think it is easier for the professor to get more one on one time with and get to know you better. My favorite class is public speaking. I thought I would hate it but its interesting and I think it will help you in the future. My least favorite class was nutrition because I didnt like the professor. He made the topic boring and hard to learn becasue he was monotone. Lots of students have intellegent and non intellegent converstations all the time, in and out side of class. I think the key is learning how to study the material for class. Its hard to pass if you cant grasp the concept when you study. I think CSU has good academic requirements. Its well rounded.
About 1/4 of professors know my name. Favorite class would have to be logic and critical thinking with professor speers. Least favorite by far is business statistics with Lampros. Most unique class i've taken is ethnicity and the media with julie sullivan. I think it's a great class and recommend it to all.
Intro classes (freshman and sophomore year) at CSU are usually huge, so you have to make an effort with professors to get them to know your name. There's also a core curriculum, but it's pretty basic (the classes you take depend on your major.) Some majors here focus on equipping you to get a job (Business, Broadcasting and Electronic Media, Journalism, Education, Engineering, Meteorology, etc), while other majors (Classics, Letters, Philosophy, History) are just learning for the hell of it.
My major is Professional Writing. It's a tiny major within the Journalism Department that focuses on a freelance or creative writing career (rather than the factual reporting style of mainstream journalism.) I usually spend anywhere from 30 minutes to three hours a night on school work. Overall, as a major, Journalism at CSU is pretty incredible. The instructors have amazing industry experience, and the Journalism building is equipped with the newest technology on the market.
Oh, one course outside my major that everyone should take - you cannot leave this university without Rufus Fears' "Freedom in Rome" or "Freedom in Greece" classes. He is the most captivating speaker I have ever heard, and he actually makes ancient history fun. He lectures with a broomstick pole in his hand so he can act out battles, and he's been known to stab students or cut off their heads with it during passionate fight scenes.
Occasionally students will have intellectual conversations outside of class, but most of the time conversation focuses on sports, parties and Greek life.
I think that the smaller classes at CSU are better for most students it gives more room for one-on- one interaction with the teachers.
SOme professors know my name. Participation is pretty common. We can se our profs outside class
At CSU, students are fairly competitive. We like getting good grades, but we are not arrogant pricks. My favorite class so far is astronomy. Astronomy was very hard, but by far the most interesting class I have taken.
I am a consrtuction management business major and i really enjoy my major classes. The other classes that are required to take i don't like cause i don't want to be their. The classes sizes are the perfect size in my opinion. The major classes say geology and statistics are on the largers size, but the classes in my major are reallitively small.
Professors with a class of 50 or more do not know my name, nor do I blame them. I wouldn't be able to learn all the names of the students every semester. My favorite classes typically are the ones with my favorite professors. A professor can make or break a class for me, even if I love the topic and am interested in it. I like when they use humor and are really comfortable with the students.
Calc is my favorite class.
My favorite class is my seminar class because it is small and fun
Many of the professors do make a pretty good attempt at getting to know the students here, I think I am gaining a pretty good relationship with many of them. I do not like the advising system however. I think it could definitly use some work. My major is apparel merchandising and marketing and I really like my program and the classes I am taking. It is a pretty small program so the people in my classes know each other. The students are not cometitve though, they want to help eachother out and see one another succucede. I think that our professors want us to succeced also. I think that the academic requierments at CSU are much like other colleges, not to rigourous, but in my major it is very laid out for you, and if you get behind or transfer in you are behind. I transfered in and will not be able to graduate for awhile now, because they did not accept the classes that I took at my previous school even though they were the same class.
The professors at CSU are generally great teachers. In the smaller classes I have taken, the professors remember all the students' names and the students participate more. The classes are large for general courses, but when you start taking higher level courses the classes become smaller.
I study a little every day, and a lot before tests. I enjoy all my classes except for introduction to visual arts. It is a really boring class and I can never stay awake.
Professors here are very good, i have a couple who i even visit and know each other on a first name bases. the Proffessors here are really concerned about the student and will do everything to help
I'm in lecture halls, so the professors just point to me and say, "You".
The professors are hard to contact, but when you do half of them really don't want to talk to you. The advising in the civil engineering department is almost non existant for freshmen.
The academics at CSU are challenging and very beneficial. I have gotten to know a few of my professors but most of them probably don't know my name. My favorite class is Physics 121. The content is often complicated but there are plenty of help sessions and the teacher makes a valid effort to provide the most help possible. He also makes an effort to get to know students the best he possibly can.
There are definitely huge class sizes, and for the most part the professors don't know your name. You have to take the initiative to excel academically.
Most of my classes are large, but have a smaller recitation or lab that meets once a week which make the bigger classes not feel overwhelming. Class participation is not very common in my larger classes but is very common in the smaller classes. I feel professors are easy to get ahold of outside of class whenever I need help.
Id say for the most part students only study when they abosolutly need to. and this is conveyed through how crowded the library gets thorwds midterms and final week. CSU students are defiently ready to get a job once out of school
Although many freshman or sophomore classes range from 30-400 people, it is not difficult to get to know your professor. If the student really wants to get to know the professor, it is not hard at all. After being at CSU 2 semesters, I have learned that you can make a classroom as big as you want. If you want a class of 20 students all you have to do is sit in the front row. Professors get to know you if you sit in the front, and often you come to spend time with professors outside of class as well. However, if a student does not want to be a part of a small class all you have to do is sit near the back. You blend in and can do as you please which is a nice freedom, but comes with responsibility.
I think you get a good education but the requirements are kinda retarded at times because i didn't apply for the bus. school right out of high school like some other people did and now i have to bust ass to try and get in and i am doing much better in all my classes than some of the people i know who are already in the school of business.
I think my favorite class would have to be my 420 entreprenuership class I feel I am learning a great deal about opening a business and i think I am ahead of the game in terms of how more prepared than others from taking this calss.
Favorite Class- Insects, Science and Society- the professor (Dr. Cranshaw) was awesome. Least favorite class: POLS 131- poorly designed and no book.
academics seem much more difficult than at UCD, but i'm really enjoying my classes and all of my teachers.
The core classes are way too large!
Although i sit in the front and have talked to some teachers i dont believe that many of them if any know my name. Class participation is great in all my classes. My major is merchandising i havent done much for it but so far its a blast. I believe that CSU and its students are geared towards getting a job.
The teachers are all very kind and willing to help you if you seek their help. At least the teracher's i've had. They have their office hours, and if students chose to use them, then they can excell even further.
