TEACHING AND TEACHERS ARE EXCELLENT BUT SOCIAL LIFE HAS TO BE IMPROVED A LOT.

Review
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I liked the interaction during lectures, and having different objectives, like the group project during the semester. Some lectures didn't live up to the others though, which could be improved.

Nothing for now
