I love the classroom style! The focus is on group work where you learn together and try to solve problems rather than attending a lecture and taking notes. Classrooms always have more than one teacher in them so students can get more individualized help and different view points from different teachers. Sometimes, classrooms will have teachers from different departments all teaching one topic (for example, a math teacher, a psych teacher, and a chemistry teacher all talking about the distributions of Skittles flavors, the recognition of Skittles and their flavors, and the sour acids in the Skittles respectively).

This school is excellent for any healthcare related field. Its specialties revolve mostly around nursing and physician related positions. Working closely with the Mayo Clinic, this school provides students with direct exposure to the medical field and makes learning about your particular area of study easier.
