    I am currently studying sports management. In all of my classes the quality of the lectures that are given are very well done. They are very informative and clear. The Professors in each class are also constantly keeping us engaged and interested. Going to a class for a long period of time, it can easily get boring and uninteresting. But I have found that I actually enjoy going to each class because each time I am constantly learning new stuff that I will surely use in the rest of my future. Another really important thing that I love about this program is that the classes provide some recourses and the recourses that I do have to pay for, are constantly used in class and I always end up feeling like I did truly get my money out of it. When it comes to the work load, there is a lot of it. As an athlete it can be very difficult to manage time wisely. But I have found that everyone around including the Professors are always willing to help me out and become the best learner and student I can be so in the future when use my degree I will surely know everything I need to know.

    I'd love to see more field trips included in the courses. I got to go outside of a class once to to practice the knowledge I learned in the class, but it would be great if I get to do that more often.
