Unresponsive instructors by both e-mail and course discussioQuite BrightComputer Science
Unresponsive instructors by both e-mail and course discussions
Contradicting assignment instructions that set students up for failure
Course shells are copy pasted which only adds to the confusion
I haven't learned any new material that I didn't already know from
my previous college's associates program (currently in UAT's bachelor program). UAT is apparently too concerned

about making as much money as it can that they only accept so many transfer
credits which causes me to take courses on things that I'm already
proficient in. Tell me, how does that benefit me in any way at all?
I may be getting good grades but that doesn't amount to anything if
the education I'm receiving is of poor quality.With the way these classes are going, I'm better off teaching myself.

Question
I have a feeling of regret and miseryBrightArt & Design Department
I have a feeling of regret and misery stab me every time I remember that I graduated from UAT. Spare yourself. It's quite an expensive waste these days too. After filling this out I realize UAT does have strengths, just in the wrong places (nice campus, etc).

If you want to do game design/development - do game jams NOW (there are no excuses! twine,gamemaker,construct 2, unity, ue4 + youtube,manuals,etc) Join any/all local game development meetups and groups, frequent Gamasutra. You can do this while earning a degree from a reputable and transferable place.

If you love your future self - save money by going to community college->transfer into reputable place route. Overpaying for unrelated topics stings. I imagine the same sting can be felt at even the most reputable place!Check accreditation (know about this thoroughly; they are not all the same), transferring credits, and portfolios and resumes of professors/graduates carefully. If you are smart, definitely don't sell yourself short by going or only applying here or similar money grabs.

UAT has helped me in many ways relating to career growth. High school students, follow your passion and don't let anything get in the way.
