What are the academics like at your school?


I am majored in biology, then after I am hoping to attend the physical school doctorate school. I am intending to use all ways of help I can get to succeed including professors office hours.


The difficulty in academics depends on your major. Given the math department at UCF is not efficient (thank god im not a math major), one because all math classes below calculus meet for 50 minutes ONCE a week and then you have to go to the math mall (a room where you have to commit 3 hours a week doing math work). I believe the math mall is very inefficient because why not just use those three hours in a classroom setting taught by a professor. Since i am a Biomedical Science major i am always studying and preparing myself to class but i still have time to enjoy myself as long as you set up times to study, do your work, and have fun you will enjoy your experience in college. I still workout, go out on the weekends, and hangout with friends. You just have to work hard and put in the effort to pass your classes.


My professors so far have been great. Many of the professors are available for time after or before class. There is opportunity for help on campus if a student is in need of help.


Since I have not been in school since 1972 they are a bit more harder than I remember. The education process is also much different than I remember.


The academics here are pretty great. Some programs are much more highly revered than others. The engineering and scientific research programs are particularly active and have a very respectable staff. The foreign languages and liberal arts, not so much. Still, my favorite class is definitely categorized as such because of my professor, despite my being a member of the school of Arts & Humanities. The teacher was passionate about what she did, loved to involve students, and qualifiably improved my ability to perform the tasks she asked of us. I don't know that I *have* had a least favorite class, but if I had to choose one it has to be my first history class... ZZzzzZZzzzZzZz There are a multitude of students that are particularly studious. The library is full just about open to close, with familiar and new faces daily. I don't know that the school is more known for its studious population than its fun-loving one, though. Class participation is not exactly common, but that also allows that those students who *do* participate are highly regarded by their professors, giving them an edge when it comes to letters of recommendations and such. The class participation issue also likely reflects the competition amongst students. My particular department - English - is not very competitive because it is designed to create intellectual communities, so there is more cooperation than competition. Still, I've yet to have many intellectual conversations outside of class, though my experience has not been entirely devoid of them. Sadly, I have not taken many "unique" classes because of the nature of my major and minor not allowing for much leeway or diversity in subject matter. That is not to say that there are not interesting classes for each major, just that I have not taken them. Against my advisor's and parents' advice I was able to take a History of Hip Hop class, though, which was fairly interesting and rather unique. The professors are very much available outside of class, despite the ever-growing number of students. Again, competition is not exactly rampant, so it is possible to visit a professor with questions at just about any time during their office hours, and they are most often than not incredibly thankful for the company and very eager to help. After all, how mundane would a life of planned conversation and paper-grading be? The school's academic requirements are definitely fair and reasonable. The education is certainly geared towards jobs, so their requirements are basic, and establish a need for basic understanding.


At the underclassmen level, no the professors will not know your name unless you make it a point to get to know them. As you progress, your classes will get smaller and you'll get to know your teachers more personally. Getting involved in their research is a great way to get to know them.


The classes at UCF are very large at first. Until you get into your upper level courses you may have 50-100 other students in your class making it hard for the professor to get to know each and every student. I HIGHLY recommend going to their office hours! they like to see students take an interest and are always willing to give extra help if needed. As you get into the more specializes classes they get a significantly smaller and the professors will do more to take a one-on-one approach with the students who try their hardest. I personally am a Forensic Science major, and have had the same professors multiple times. In this instance it will make it easier to get recommendation letters if one decides to go on to further education.


Being a freshman I haven't had that much experience with too many classes yet. However, with what I have had so far classes here are GREAT! The teachers are nice, personable, and want to see you succeed. The most important thing to remember is that you are at a big school so classes are probably going to be on the large side and teachers will probably have multiple sections of the class. It is pretty easy to get in contact with other students in the class but I find it best to just go to the teacher's office hours. Majority of the faculty offices are located in either Colburn Hall or Howard Phillips' Hall. This makes it easy to see multiple teachers at once. Teachers are more than willing to help you and meet with you outside of class. Like I said earlier, they want to see you succeed. UCF's academic are also geared towards success. For a lot of the majors, some internship credit is required. UCF makes sure you know what you are doing before sending you off, something I think will help with my transition after graduation.


Academics Are Great (to be continued)


Having a large campus with many students is great, but it does come with some disadvantages. Class sizes for general education courses tend to be very large. As a result professors do not know who you are. Personally, I believe it is great to introduce yourself to a teacher if put in a large class. Even though you might not get personal attention from a teacher, there are many helpful tutoring sessions held at UCF. Currently, I'm a sophomore and my major is Cinema Studies. I find that once you complete all your general education requirements the class sizes get smaller as you progress into your major.


Academics in this school is competitive but that also depends on your field of interest/major. For example, students seeking medical professions might find school more challenging than students in a hospitality major.


Because of the often large class sizes it can be hard to get to know your teachers but this is less true once you get into upper division/major specific or graduate courses. Some teachers do still make an effort to get to know everyone anyway. The Burnett Honors College also offers smaller class sizes. Studying varies off the major. I changed my major 8 times in undergrad, finally graduating with a BS in Psychology and now am getting my MA in Sociology. I enjoyed almost every department to the extent I was involved (I am just indecisive) though they all have ups and downs. No education is geared towards getting a job; that is not the purpose of education, it is to learn but there is help available for those seeking one after graduation: all types of workshops, career fairs, and a special building with staff devoted to helping you with this. I feel the academic requirements are reasonable. My favorite classes have been those within the Honors College.


People might think that academically UCF isn't as hard as others schools because we haven't been around for as long but just like any college there are difficult class such as Biochem and easier classes. Students ca be competitive at times especially if you want to be admitted into harder program such as our Nursing program. I have a double major in Legal Studies and Psychology and I try to spend time with my professors because I like them to know me especially if I want them to write me a recommendation letter.


In my experience, the academics at UCF have so far been wonderful. Although you general education classes will be large, most of the professors are able to teach to the magnitude. However, the large class-size of lower-level classes does mean it is more of a one-way lecture rather than a student-participating discussion. Upper level classes are smaller, but still about 70 students to a class in many of them. All professors have office hours, but a really neat program is called SI, or supplemental instruction. SI is a study-session of sorts, for a class that has a typically high ratio of failures, so a class such as Biology or Statistics, offers SI. These study sessions are taught by a student that has previously taken the class and received an A, thus ensuring that this student is knowledgeable and competent within the subject. SI sessions typically run about 2-4 times per week for a class depending on how many different sections there are per class and also how many credit hours the class is worth. It is also pretty amusing how empty the SI sessions are in the beginning of the year, but how jam packed they are towards finals. I remember my Bio1 SI sessions at the end of the year, we were in a small auditorium for approximately 300 students and there were still people sitting on the floor. My suggestion?- Go to SI from the beginning of the class so that you're only reviewing, rather then re-LEARNING, come finals.


I would say it depends on your major for the academics. As an AD/PR major I am finally in smaller classes which puts me on a more personal level with my professors allowing them to get to know a little more about me and vice versa. However, if you were a business major, most of your classes are online so your teacher is not able to know you as well as a smaller major professor would. To answer if students study, well that is on a personal level. Of course I have not run into someone who hasnt studied for a test, but you never know there are those people out there. I think this school does a very good job mapping out everything for your major and minor. They have a great program that makes it easy to follow. The education level is geared toward learning things to help you succeed in the field. Without the educational background, we would be lost.


The academics at my school is very rigorous, generally you are suppose to spend anywhere from 3 to 5 hours of study time per lecture hour. Most professors are truly passionate about their fields, they see themselves as scholars and researchers first then teachers second. My favorite class has to be management of organizations because the professor speaks about how the theories we learn are and have been applied in the real world. The least favorite would have been calculus I, I don't even remember the professor's name but he assumed that everyone completely understood calculus I material even if you have never taken it before. I generally tend to study pretty often since I'm in higher level courses now. In higher level courses class participation is not only common but encouraged by the professors. Some students form study groups outside of lectures in order to better understand the topics discussed to ofcourse to cram for exams. Most students are competitive, especially when considering sports. The most unique class I have taken would have been intro to marketing in which I found a lot of interesting information regarding some very well known companies. I am a Finance major in the college of business at UCF. UCF's academic requirement are very good, they want students to graduate and be successful in order to brand the UCF logo out into the world. I am part of DECA and we work hand in hand with some faculty members. Education at UCF is all about getting students into their careers before they graduate and having them be successful in their careers. UCF even offers assistance with starting your own business.


I am a political science major on the pre-law track. While taking your general education courses at UCF the class sizes will be considerably large. Majority of the general education classes will be held in auditorium style classrooms. Even though I have had classes with over 300 students, I was still able to receive one-on-one time with my professors. As you get into your major specific courses, class sizes dramatically decrease. Many of these classes will have anywhere from 15 students to about 60 students depending on what the class is. In political science classes, there is plenty of class discussion. Professors will guide the discussion but will push you to answer extremely difficult theoretical questions and hypothetical situations. You will have to be able to speak and also defend your thoughts with facts. Many of these classes have midterms, finals and also papers. Depending on the professor your exams can be multiple choice, or essay based. Professors will know your name and who you are at UCF. The professors are also very approachable and make themselves available to their students at all times. UCF also has plenty of outside organizations that are geared to help students with their academics and future careers. For example, Phi Alpha Delta is a pre-law fraternity on campus where students are able to socialize, get valuable information from guest speakers about law school, receive discounts on LSAT courses and interact with current law school students. Not only is there Phi Alpha Delta, but there are also pre-med organizations, business organizations, and leadership organizations such as the LEAD Scholars Program. Students create study groups quite often to prepare for their exams and will often continue speaking about the lessons learned in class outside of the classrooms. Students are not competitive with one another over grades. Students will e-mail others the notes if they missed class without any sort of hassle. No matter how large or how small your class size is at UCF, you will never feel alone because the professors are always available to assist students and UCF students truly do help one another.


The common stereotype given to UCF students are that they jocks who spend too much time partying instead of being mature, dedicated students. The phrase that often poses UCF in a bad light is the motto You Can't Finish to indicate that students start their degree but cannot follow through with completing their major. This however is an incorrect assumption because students at UCF go on to be very successful and have wonderful careers.


Academics at UCF have a very developed system. Its not just attend the lecture, do the homework and take the test. There are so many student assistance programs for tutoring, and the amount of classmate-based study groups are even more. The library is open till midnight to host exam reviews and there is now a 24 hour study hall at UCF. There are also teaching assistants and office hours to accommodate questions and concerns. Most of my friendships have sprouted from these typical study groups and that's just another plus!


Classes tend to be larger (in the thousands) and online. Depending on the subject or major classes range from 20 students to 3,000. In some of my earlier classes, I got to know my professor very well, but in others, the professor had not a clue who any individual student was (which I didn't mind in some occasions). UCF is stereotyped as a college where students study the least, but personally, I know this to be false. I've seen engineering majors study for a test for 5 days and barely get a C. College is college. For smaller classes (which get more prevalent junior and senior year), attendance and participation is am must. For online classes, the importance of participation is dismal. Students at UCF, or any college, have many intellectual conversations, considering that these individuals decided to continue their education past the basics of grade school. Students are not competitive, unless they are engineering majors. While many students change their major atleast once in their first two years, I have continued my studies in Business Marketing since my freshman year. Business majors consist of many online classes and many very large classes until senior year. Despite having large classes, much is learned and retained in the business program at UCF. Evvery professor has office hours and students are encouraged to attend them. The professors are always very helpful. From what i've heard from friends at other Florida institutions,the academic requirements are easier at UCF, but that is quite subjective. UCF is definitely more geared to getting a job after graduation.


The majority of my professors have taken the time and made the effort to learn my name, and I've always appreciated that. There are some cases where teacher's haven't cared, but that is the minority. My favorite class was "The Science of Literature," and I've never liked a class that much. There was an overwhelming amount of class participation and personal involvement and the professor played a large part in facilitating that. I haven't seen students be too competitive, but I know it definitely exists. The amount of studying depends on the student. Some people don't need to study as much as others, so I would say it ranges from none, to several hours a week. I have had several intellectual conversations will people outside of class, and made several friends doing so. There are so many different people on campus, so you always have the opportunity to run into someone interesting. I'm an English major, and my department is excellent. The advisers have always been helpful and there to answer any questions I had. I really feel like they want everyone to succeed. They care, and I think that's a rarity in this world. I think the academic requirements of the school are good, as they cover a wide variety of areas. All of the required classes are necessary in making you well rounded for your future career. That being said, I think the education is definitely geared toward getting a job, at least in my department. My professors had people working in our fields come in and talk to the students, and advise us on what the real world was like. As the advisers seek to help us, so do the professors.


The academics are phenomenal. Even in a huge freshman class a professor will make it a point to get to know you if you make it a point to succeed in their class. In smaller more intimate classes students and teachers will discuss more than just the lecture material at hand, but real life situations and current events. This sort of thought provoking and intellectual conversation that relates to the subject material but is not a requirement for class really helps teachers and students get to know one another as well as to help the student learn as much as they can while they are in that class. Studying outside of the classroom is a must, however the teachers do such an amazing job teaching that material while in lecture that going home and studying the human immune system is neither hard nor boring but something that is easy and not going to stress students out enough to make them completely ignore their course work. This teaching style is geared towards getting a job, but also bettering students knowledge of the world and to help them get a better idea of what is going on and how it relates to them.


What academics are like at UCF depends largely on the size of the student body in the particular class. These sizes can range from just over a dozen in some of the more advanced course to well over a hundred. Generally, the larger the class size, the less active participation is expected and the less individual attention students receive, though there are some exceptional instructors who teach large classes and still manage to give good attention to each student who needs it. However, all professors are definitely approachable during their office hours, regardless of class size, so if you have any trouble with the subject matter you can always come to see them about it. There is at least some studying going on on campus pretty much at all times, usually at the on campus library; indeed, the library is more of a study hall than an actual library as far as I've seen. As far as the purpose of education at UCF goes, it is definitely more for getting a job than pure learning, but I feel this is by no means a bad thing as UCF goes the extra mile for helping students land a job, boasting a full Career Services center and career expos held regularly where students can meet potential employers.


I like the way academics are governed at UCF. In terms of classrooms of small size, I always feel welcomed by my instructor, getting to know him/her on a personal, first-name basis. Professors are generally warm, speaking as if it was just two people sitting in the room. All of the professors I have had in both my major and minor know me by name, which is good because I feel that there is always open lines of communication between teacher and student. My favorite classes are those that are in my minor--mass communication. I say that because the teachers and students in that college are so inviting, and the subject matter makes it necessary to meet together to study, which can also give birth to wholesome association. In these and all the other courses I am enrolled in, I always find class participation to be the norm, with a few shy students opting just to listen and take all of the information in. As for my major (English) I feel much the same way. Being an English major is different from most other majors because there are no exams; which, in turn, makes studying almost invalid. Thus, it is not often that I spend time with those in these classes unless it is to do peer review or similar assignments. Still, I love being an English major because I love to write, and what is more, I feel that I am pretty good at it. All things factored in, I am satisfied with the academic portion here at UCF. I feel that it has improved in the three years that I have called this school my home, and I believe that it will only continue to get better!


"Scholarship" is an important part of our UCF Creed. It stands for cherishing and honoring learning as a fundamental purpose of membership in the community. Needless to say, academics are taken extremely seriously at the University of Central Florida. Over the years, our admissions GPA and SAT/GRE/MCAT scores have been steadily increasing, which shows the standard of competition in our programs. I have never had a professor who was unwilling to help me after class or during their office hours. There are also organizations like SARC on campus, where students tutor other students for free. UCF has also been successful in integrating technology into academics. There is a variety of online and hybrid courses in the catalog which makes learning available to all kinds of students. In addition, we have been excelling in the research arena with multiple active labs such as Minds in Technology, Institute for Simulation and Training etc. I am psychology major myself. Psychology is one of the most popular majors at UCF. Besides core courses, the program also offers internship placements, career seminars and research opportunities, all of which help us in achieving our career goals. Students are also encouraged to do their best academically through numerous scholarship incentives and advanced programs like LEADS.


I am a junior and a Criminal Justice major now so I have had experience with both general education courses as well as major courses and I can honestly say that they are all great. I love the psychology classes they are awesome and everyone loves the professors especially Negy and then my personal experience with Sinatra and Sholar. General Psychology (PSY 2012) had to be one of the most unique and interesting courses I have taken at UCF. One of the requirements of this course was the opportunity to participate in SONA research studies and I participated in a few that were extremely fun (one dealing with a game that tested your communication and skills while being part of a military operation and one dealing with memory exercise). The Criminal Justice courses and professors are great as well I have not met one that I did not like. The class sizes depend on your preference and availability if you like small, large, or online lectures there are all kinds of opportunities. I have taken many online classes and although there is usually more work, they are great for self-motivators and people that need the luxury and flexible time schedule. Professors always tell students their times and means of availability like office hours, email, and office phone numbers and sometimes their cell numbers as well. The Professors are also always willing to help with any issues or questions you may have. There are also many certificate programs like crime scene investigation, victim advocacy, criminal profiling, and more that allow students to learn about more specialized fields and knowledge of the criminal justice field.


I can say with confidence that I have the best situation at UCF being a language major. I have small class sizes for my major and all of my professors know my name. That's what everyone wants- a professor that knows their name and they are satisfied with the school. However, in the language department at UCF, the professors not only know your entire name, they know multiple things about you and really encourage you to learn and expand your cultural horizons and push you to develop your own point of view. They are always there to help, while at the same time giving an academic challenge and sincerely care about your state of being. I remember after my grandmother passed last Thanksgiving, my spanish professor came up to me after class and made sure that I was doing okay and even said she was there for me if I ever needed someone to talk to. That is going above and beyond their job description, and I know that if I ever needed anything I could turn to my professors. Although I feel significantly challenged learning a second language, I feel like most classes at UCF aren't challenging enough. I feel this way for one reason- I can't recall a single intellectual debate outside of the classroom. I am originally from PIttsburgh and when I return and visit my best friend at her university I am able to participate in various intellectual conversations with substance that have nothing to do with tanning, the beach or working out. However, without a doubt, I believe as UCF continues to expand it will be harder to become accepted into such an amazing university and the conversations will transform into modern day politics and intellectual topics.


The academics at my school are awesome. I have enjoyed almost every class.


The classes at UCF can be very large (300 students) or small and confined (30 students). I prefer smaller classes. Once you get in your core classes the size gets smaller. The general education classes are the ones that are large. I personally did not like the general education courses only because I knew what I wanted my major to be. It is great for students who are undecided though. The most unique class I have taken was World Religions. I had never taken a course like this before and it opened my eyes to many new aspects of the world. I am an Elementary Education major and I love my department. They put on so many seminars, workshops and conferences to help you with your schooling and career. There are so many extras to get involved in and you can get all the help you need. The professors are very caring and will answer any questions you have. Most classes require a decent amount of work and you have to study hard, but in the end it is all worth it.


Class sizes range from 20 students to 300 students. If you like the smaller size, it's easy to find professors that offer a class with minimal capacity. These types of classes are best for students that feel the need to connect with their professors, which is not hard at UCF. All of the professors that I have had are extremely open and offer many modes of communication. Most professors provide you with office hours, their emails, school phone number, and sometimes even their personal phone number! All of my professors have been very friendly and understanding, although this may not apply to all professors at UCF, like any university. If you want a better understanding of what your professor will be like before you enroll in a class, go to to see what previous students have said.


I've dual enrolled at other universities and all of the classes and professors are different, but i love that there are so many opportunites to explore and try innovative things with your assignments. There's a lot of academic freedom.


The size of your class varies depending on the class, but typically the classes get smaller and more engaging as you transition from general courses to major courses. With a campus so large they must accommodate for larger classrooms for the general courses. Even with large classes, professors make plenty of office hour time to allow for individual attention. In the smaller classes; I've experienced a lot of interaction and classroom bonding. I actually had several of the same peers in multiple classes which made the experience more enriching. I love that UCF offers multiple types of classes including weekend courses, night course, web course and mixed mode courses.


I'm here to be honest. Professors will not know your name unless you kiss their butts, talk to them after class, kiss their butts, show up to their office hours, and, I don't know if I mentioned this but, KISS THEIR BUTTS. My favorite class ever was my American Government class with Robert Bass my freshman year. He was the man. He was hilarious, super nice, and he made sure he learned the names of every student. WARNING: not all professors will be like Professor Bass. My least favorite class was with this lady who treated us like we were back in elementary school. She would read to us, using different voices for different characters, and she would draw illustrations on the board. (Yeah, there are still weird ones.) Class participation is encouraged, if not part of your grade, in almost every class. Except of course in giant classes with 500 kids. That would be way too nerve-wracking! Students study the amount that is right for them. I barely study and I get good grades, but not every person is like that. It's good to try and do an overview of every class every day in order to keep it fresh in your mind. I know that nobody does that, but it's good advice! Many students have intellectual conversations outside of class which also acts as a great study technique. Personally, I have never been one to get to know my professors, but my advice would be to do the exact opposite. It is good to talk to them and feel comfortable with them, that way, if you ever have any questions, they will treat you with more warmth and respect. (And if you skip class, you are more likely to get it excused. But you didn't hear that from me!) There are so many unique classes here at UCF. I have never taken any, being a double major in political science and english literature, but I know plenty of people who have! There are classes about ball dancing, yoga, fitness, sex, film, theatre, you name it! the education that you receive from UCF will turn you into a well rounded student. UCF is really great at preparing students for the real world. You can't go wrong with a degree from here.


The academics are very rigorous however our school rovides supplemental instruction as well as other resources to benefit us.


I'm an accounting major, and I can say, while the classes are challenging, they're enjoyable, especially once you get into your major. I feel that a lot of the General Education classes you take your first two years are just people movers, in the sense that teachers just want to push you through to move on to your respective majors, since almost everyone has to take the same Gen Ed classes, no matter what your major is.


The academics at UCF are not to be taken lightly, depending on your major the courses can be extremely challenging. On the other hand easier courses are offered as well. I study on average a few hours almost everyday of the week to stay on track and not fall behind. I know alot of students who have slowly fallen behind n multiple courses over each semester, and sometimes had to withdrawl from courses. I always see tons of students studying in the library and other places all over campus. There are alot of tutors available for the more challenging courses and students in classes together usually make study groups and such to aid in studying.


It all depends on your major. may business majors have hundreads even thousands of students in their classes. Many of them never even attend a classroom or meet their teachers. I myself am a hospitality major so i have small specialized classes where i know eveyone and my teachers actually know my name!


If you get to know your professor, then you will be fine and known. Sit in front of the classes! Teachers will not know who you are unless you do this since classes are huge. Students study 24/7 and by the way most of my psychology classes are my favorite ones. Students are very competitive! Psychology is the biggest major at UCF and the department has wonderful staff/faculty willing to help and work with psych students in any way they can. It's hard to get into labs and I network with professors through the Psychological Society and Psi Chi. The education learned here is geared towards both learning and getting a job.


The general education classes are big and boring. Once you get into your major the classes are so much fun! I was able to take classes in my interest areas. Most of my social work classes were with the same couple hundred students and we all graduated together. Most classes were 20-40 students. I owe everything to UCF! I graduated May 2010. I applied to graduate school at 5 schools and I was accepted to all 5 (thanks to my UCF education). I applied to UCF, UGA, USC, UNC and NYU. I recieved a HUGE scholarship to NYU and will be attending in Fall 2010! I owe that to UCF!!!


I went to a community college and got my associates first, so I didn't experience the large, auditorium style classes that are appearantly commone for general ed classes. All of my classes were 30 or so students (which is still too big for literature classes), and the profesors were extremely personable and I enjoyed my classes.


Big classes. Seriously, sit near the front, attend the classes, talk to the professors even a little bit. These will help. Studying is crucial. But if you take the education part seriously (not everyone does), you'll do fine. If you need help, it's available.


It takes alot of work and time to do well, but it's not too difficult


In small classes many professors do know my name but in the larger classes it is very rare. I think UCF's academic requirements are extremely good. They are rising and our school is truly growing.


Overall my class experience has been well. Had a couple of GREAT professors, had a couple of BAD professors, and a lot of mediocre ones.


Professors do not know your name. Students do not study that often. Class participation is common Students are competitive


Because I talk a lot, professors know my name. My favorite class would actually have to be my Spanish courses I have taken with Dr. Thompson, despite it be my minor, he is challenging and always made me laugh. I always looked forward to his class. My major is exciting, I did encounter some dry courses, but everything I have learned has been useful, and I feel well prepared to take on law school.


I can't really speak in behalf of the students and the fact that I'm only a freshman but I really just do enough to get by. Sure we're competitive but for what goal? Our diploma doesn't have our gpa on it so why bother? As long as I keep my good ole' bright futures then my mother and I are happy. We need more intimate classroom settings, and a grading system like Emory university and Dartmouth where you just pass or fail, my friend there says it's great and so stress free.


Some professors know my name, but only if its a small classroom setting. My favorite class varies, but currently it is Biology and my least favorite is Chemistry. Class participation is common in the classes, depending on what we're doing, but overall, the class participates and interacts with the teacher. Some students are competitive in the classes, but they're just looking out for themselves and wanting to get the best grade possible. Many students within the science classes that I am are very determined to get the best grade possible, but it helps for their GPA.


Most of my Professors do know my name. There are only so many Legal Studies professors, and I have them multiple times. I do go meet with them as much as possible to develop a better teacher/student relationship. I believe majority of students do well, and do have intellectual conversations outside of class. Some of my best discussions have been sitting in the hallways of the school. My department I believe is an amazing programs with just wonderful professors. It is gearing me up for law school.


Professors are very helpful
