Intensive testimonials

What did you think about the summer intensive courses?

Student and faculty testimonials from past intensive courses:

"Excellent courses! Requires a lot of work, however you learn at such a fast pace it motivates you to get your work done and enjoy your summer."

"Very fast paced. I think that the intensive format gives students an incentive to study hard, and keep in mind that in 3, they will receive credit! Great for those who just want to work a lot during the summer."

"I wish classes were like this during the regular semester. 3 weeks long then move to the next 3 week class."

"I would rather 3 weeks of intensive schooling rather than 6 weeks of regular schooling. It gives me more free time in the summer and focus on a single class."

"I wanted it to be short and sweet. The intensive course allowed me to enjoy summer a little more."

"I thought the intensive format helped with me being more immerse and absorbed into the material I was learning. I liked the shorter weeks spent as I didn't feel a slump in the class and I consistently kept up with my work. The interest was never lost."

"I think the intensive format was a great experience and now that it's over, I can say that I would probably prefer it over a traditional 6 week course."

"The vigorous study plan constantly reminded me to focus and not fall behind. Having class every day for a couple hours was just long enough."

"Fast-paced, effective learning."

"It was condensed, challenging, and totally worth it."

"Excellent, immersive experience for students who obtain thorough knowledge through condensed contact." (Faculty)

"The focused approach gave them opportunity to concentrate effort in a condensed format." (Faculty)

"Students stayed focused. Small class size. More time per meeting allowed for inclass innovation." (Faculty)
