I actually decided to transfer to CNR after my freshman year because of the nutritional sciences major. The department is small and intimate, while the subject matter is focused and directly relevant to our everyday lives. I really wanted a major that I could apply to health, not only in the context of medicine and research, but also to the meals we take and daily activities we engage in, and nutritional sciences does just that. It links biological sciences to daily, mundane activities.
In the last two years of being in CNR, I've become exposed to many of the benefits that the college itself has to offer. Small classes and student-professor interactions are definitely some of the strongest points of CNR. Office hours are extremely easy to attend (very rarely are they crowded, since class sizes are small) and professors are really interested in helping students learn and engaging them in the course material. Advising within the college is also superb. The faculty advising program is awesome, since you receive help from profs who are involved in your own field of study. The department advisors are also extremely helpful, especially when it comes down to enrollment.
CNR does feel very much like a small, 'private' college in the midst of a large public university, and I'm really glad to be a part of it.
