The university provided me with the opportunity to work with a leading epidemiologist in the Science, Health and Living Systems BA program. Additionally I was exposed to other faculty members that were approachable and available.
This is a commuter school for working adults. The school does help as much as possible and has some great resources.
The classes are small, and you are treated as a human being and an adult.
There is very little hand holding, and you are expected to be responsible for your own education.
It is a good school, and I am lucky to go there. I will probably continue on into one of their graduate programs.
My experience at this school has been relatively simple in the process of admissions and financial aid, whixh is also a great thing. The classea have been a great challenge and the professors are approachable and gladly offer extra help.
