I felt challenged in all of my Master's courses, and if I ever felt like things were too overwhelming I could always get help from the professors, my peers, the computer center, or the writing center. I never felt alone!
Best experience of my life! I have caring professors, who go out of their way to help at any moment. They are extremely qualified and the campus is beautiful.
