What are your classes like?


All of the classes I am taking are small and taught by a professor, not a TA. Just like at any school, there are good professors and there are bad professors, but you can lower your risk of getting a bad professor by talking to friends and using All of my professors know me by name and say hi to me outside of class. One great thing about going to a small school is the class sizes are fairly small, my largest being 35. Most of my classes are between 15-25, but it can get as low as single digits and freshman/nursing classes can be 70+. These small class sizes allow for a lot of discussion and not only learning about your professor, but also learning about your classmates.
