The class sizes are great! Compared to other school who have about 50+ students in one class. Our class sizes are at most 12 students. Encouraging students to talk to the professor one on one. The class participation is great as well.
Review University of the West
The faculties and advisers seem personable and knowledgeable. I'll be in the Master's program for Religious Studies with concentration in Buddhism, which is a core and uniquely strong program for this university.
The work load is not terrible considering I just completed my first year in college, but it has great opportunities to work within the school disregarding what major you are.
