If you want to go to one ofQuite BrightCommunications
If you want to go to one of the most ignorant schools in the nation this is the school for you! You can party all day, skip half of your classes and probably still pass with a decent grades. Some of the stuff I saw while attending the university was honestly disturbing. Most of the students are on anti depressents, there's discrimination in most of the programs towards minority students and in the hiring process for school program positions Even though it's not overtly stated - Everything is really indirect here - . I'm going to be completely honest, from a spiritual stand point if you're a person that is sensitive to the energy or a minority this is NOT the place for you to be. Don't say I did not warn you.The only nice thing I can say about this school is that a few of the teachers had a genuine passion for what they were teaching but the departments don't even treat their faculty members fairly. I got so upset about what I was seeing around me that I went to HR to express some of my concerns for what I was seeing at the student union (they also treat student workers horribly because they can replace them easily with incoming freshman) he didn't seem to care until I threw out legal issues like disclosing personal emails to other faculty being and students being illegal. However, I was brushed off and not taken seriously. I will say every university has its problems, but this schools biggest downfall is its ignorance. Family guy summarized this school the best LOL

A very cold, barren, unfriendly place.Quite BrightPhysics
A very cold, barren, unfriendly place. The faculty and staff couldn't care less whether you succeed or not. They barely even take notice of you. Your peers are either aloof or hostile to you. There is no such thing as real friendship there. The faculty do as little as they can get away with as far as teaching you. The ratio of men to women seems like about 100 to 1, so good luck finding a decent girl there. Miserable place. Absolutely miserable.

What a shock.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
What a shock.....for $50000 a year we thought this would be awesome. Well, let me tell you that it is clear that it is nothing short of a large corporation much like a Walmart where they collect as much of your money and give you nothing in return. No one to answer questions, no one to assist with much of anything. It is like a mafia family. Money is all that matters and the collection of the money.I spent hours on the phone and demanded to speak to a Dean/director/dept head etc and was told that no one is available.$50,000 a year will soon be spent else where and I can guarantee this university that everyone I know will know what a money grubbing facility this place is. THEY CARE NOTHING ABOUT YOUR STUDENT. And a school that charges for their copies? Most schools include copies made in the library if your a student and doing class work. They really to be turned in for raping their students. Just read all the reviews....we are telling the truth. There is no one her who gives a damn. Advisors are never available and the only place you have not trouble getting to talk to someone is at the Bursars office (MONEY Collecting) The classes are not even the caliber of what community colleges are in New York. This place should be embarrassed for selling a good education. GOOD LUCK with that. Your student will not be able to get the classes they need because they are over sold and not enough spots. I have reached out to the attorney general for further action. Stay away!
