This school is a big business. Do yourself a favor and do not take out a loan to come here. This school is fairly priced for in state children but for out of state its a complete ripoff. For tuition alone this semester was 14k. Imagine if I added a meal plan and lived on campus , outrageous. The classes here a remotely easy and could be more challenging for a 14k price.

There is one professor in particular who provided a negative experience--Prof. Richard Borie. He was the only professor teaching certain major-required courses. He was unapproachable for help, a hard grader, gave really hard exams suitable more for graduate student-level work and was the reason I ended up with a lower than expected GPA. The Borie courses were combined grad/undergraduate courses, but the course work was not leveled. Everyone took the same tests and the curve was based on graduate and undergraduate performance. I felt the expectations for success were unrealistic. I was constantly struggling in Borie's class due to the lack of help or additional explanation when I asked for it. The department should look for a replacement for him.

This place is awful, do not expect any faculty or staff to help you with ANYTHING. The people here will hate you unless you are actively part of a fraternity or sorority. When signing up for classes they don't tell you that most classes are online. NOT worth the $40k+ that out of state students pay. Ive wanted to come here since I left the womb, Ive been here for one semester and I cant get out fast enough. The University covers up things like shooting threats and daily robberies. Do not make the mistake of coming here. P.S. the wifi is out every 10 minutes.
