4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

We have more classes to choose from then time to complete our program. Amazing opportunities and amazing faculty. The other students make this program SO fun as we are always doing social events together and helping each other out in classes. Everyone gets a great paying job and the network is incredible. Ithaca is very expensive and there isn't much to do in the surrounding area. There has been a bit of violence/deaths lately here.

Very intense courses, but you learn a lot. Depending on your background some will be review, which always helps to solidify concepts. Research opportunities are available right from the beginning, which is great.
