    ONE COURSE AT A TIME

    One Course at a Time Program where you only take one class for four hours a day instead of balancing multiple classes, allowing closer connections with both professors and students. I also got a decent scholarship.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I love it! I think one course at a time allows for students to really focus on one thing, and gives students time to deal with difficult classes that they might otherwise ignore and accept an F in. I also think professors use the plan effectively, providing experiential learning opportunities other universities forget to include.
