College of nursing isSuper BrilliantNursing
College of nursing is an amazing experience. It's a love hate type of relationship, but it's preparing me for my future quite well. Faculty are compassionate and very encouraging. They wear so many hats! And they wear them quite well. Not crazy about the dean, but she's retiring.

Question
I transferred here from a prestigious college forQuite Bright
I transferred here from a prestigious college for various reasons and I regret transferring here. When I got here they had butchered my transfer credits until they were almost unrecognizable, I had to go myself to the advising office to get them to change everything and even then some of my credits still weren't fixed. Thankfully I was told of CLEP exams which saved much of my money and so much time. I attemtedto get in contact with my advisor many times over the year and a half I've been here and she was more focused on the freshmen needing advising rather than transfer or existing students so I try my bets with the head of the deparment who is difficult to track down but when I do things start to happen to my benefit. The Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences is very helpful when you need him but that isn't too often. With the CLEP exams and loading up on classes I'm able to graduate early but if I could do it over again I wouldn't come to south. The campus isnt very safe and a lot of people are closedminded and this is coming from a Northerner.

Question
I started in theBrightCivil Engineering
I started in the Fall 2012 and will finish spring 2015. The schools engineering classes are only offered once a year so if you do bad in one expect your graduation year to move back one more year. The civil department teachers are ok but don't expect to learn nothing from the mechanical teachers.
