The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
The nice thing about North Central is we are very academic focus school. Like for our academics, like the classroom experience in North Central is so much different than being in high school, like the classes are still small, so you feel like you're sitting in a high school class. At the same time, like the agenda that the professors will typically have is nothing like ah, high school class, in my opinion. So we do have feelings for my major and the general education courses I've taken. They've been primarily lecture based, but also it's kind of like we're open to answer or not answer. We're open to ask any questions that we may have like about the lecture, or we could open up for discussion depending on the day. So the nice thing about being in college is the professors will give you the syllabus in advance and kind of show you what is planned for the course of the class. So you could be doing projects you could be doing, papers you could be doing just lectures and speeches and all that good stuff, and it's kind of all laid out for you. It's really nice because any professor I've had, they've been super on top of communicating any changes in dates or cancellation of class or cancellation of assignments. So you're always kind of on top of what you're doing, As long as you're in the loop with your email and checking blackboard, which is what we use for classes, you should be pretty set for classes. I wouldn't say in my experience that classes are hard. The only class is that really stressed me out where general education courses that I had to take my freshman year. So me being a broadcast communication major, I had to take to our know how to say one man, of course, and then one lab course my freshman year and that was the hardest for me personally because I'm not really was interested in learning about environmental science or finite math. I had to do it because it was part of my own curriculum. It was really stressful to kind of take my interests like away for a little bit and do general education courses so I think that's the only con I have about academics. It more so several is It's really good for people that are like declared for a major, but they want to explore their options. I feel like the people that kind of know what they wanted to do like I did. It was not like I don't want to say it was a waste of time. For me it was because it just kind of got me like bad grades. Now that I'm in all major courses, I feel like I'm more passionate about what I'm learning about in the classroom and like I'm actually excited to, like, do work for my classes now. So as long as you find something you're passionate about, you will enjoy the classes here. Regardless, if you're undeclared and you want to do whatever general education courses sound the most interesting to your freshman year and do it. If you're declared with your major than awesome. The classes that are set up for your major are really designed for you to get more in depth about what you're learning about him. I think any form of what I'm doing that I love. I will be happy with what I'm learning in the classroom in North Central.
