Don't know how it works at other schools,May 08 2012Education
Don't know how it works at other schools, but here a grad student has two main contacts on staff, their adviser and their core faculty. The involvement of both is essential to student success. in my case, I am lucky, in that my adviser is active, interested and involved. the same can not be said of my core faculty member, who rarely returns calls or emails, even when time is an issue. i have often had to wait for over a month to get simple answers or basic feedback, if they come at all, and know of times when this person would pass the buck on to someone else, after being slack, and telling that person that "this needs to be done ASAP". everyone i know who has to deal with this person has the exact same complaint.
prescott is a greatJul 24 2011Education
prescott is a great idea that has become too self-obsessed, forgetting that it is the students who give it meaning, money and power. If you are looking for a self-directed school that understands how to be supportive, and how to walk their talk, please, keep looking.
While a primary component of a Prescott CollegeJun 11 2011Other
While a primary component of a Prescott College education is self direction, this too often can act as a veil that Prescott College hides behind. At this school, dissatisfaction is dealt with as if it is the result of the student's lack of self-direction. While this can be the case, an enlightened institution would see dissatisfaction as as an indicator of potential growth possibilities.
