What are the academics like at your school?


We have small class sizes, and there are NO GA's or TA's. Our professors are scholars in their fields, so you learn from the best of the best! Your professors know your name within the first week, and it's not uncommon to get the professor's cell phone numbers for if you ever have a homework or exam question. I stay in contact with my profesors, and because they know me so well, they'll be amazing references for when I graduate. When the final Harry Potter movie came out in July '11, I had e-mails from professors (one of which was from my Freshman Seminar teacher), asking my thoughts on the movie, telling me their opinion, etc. I've been to barbeques, chili nights, s'mores nights and gone out to eat with professors & the rest of the class. They make the effort to know you, because they WANT to. They want you to come see them during office hours! Our liberal arts curriculum has been a lot of fun for me. It is cool to see how it all connects. Some classes weren't my favorite, but overall, I've enjoyed them!
