| This is a good school if you are willing to study and focus on your major. I actually learned a lot within the few years that I attended here in the English department. Some of the faculty do care about helping out the students learn more about their topic of choice. The campus is pretty well kept most of the time and has some of the most beautiful scenery around with the Pyramid and Japanese Gardens. The DSS program is a major plus for me because they helped me get through school.However, the biggest problem was the rudeness of the other students. Most of the problems were the jocks always getting special treatment and being allowed to torment the non-athletes which I felt was totally wrong. In addition, since I was not into the major trends of my peers, I had trouble fitting in. This is not a bad school, but hard to fit into if you are not one of the popular students. And I find it outrageous that the students with the positive comments are attacking those with negative comments, blaming them for their bad experince rather than understanding the person. Some schools are not a perfect match for different types of people and I am embarassed as an alum to see the positives abusing the free speech rights of the negatives. |

| If you are interested in social activities and school clubs, then this is a school for you. But for me, who does not fit in with the popular crowd and would consider myself an "outcast," fitting into this school was difficult. I come from a strict upbringing and most of the "normal" students would find being rude the norm. A good number of the females are so rude. They gossip, become bossy and even off campus, I even see some screaming at each other and I hide in the background disgusted and embarrassed that someone from my own school would act like that. The boys think about booze and sex and other dangerous things, therefore, I did not fit in too well. However, the academics were pretty challenging and decent as I had a great experience with the classes and other programs that I was able to fit myself into. |

I had a mixed experience at the school, both good and bad and I managed to tough it out. |
-shuttle service around campus so I would not get ran over by careless students.
-advocacy from DSS
-Some good professors
-the campus was nice and so is the basketball arena
-snacks during finals week
-a few professors that understood my disability
-Many different venues around campus, such as the theater, the concert hall, the Pyramid, Japanese Gardens, etc.
-The city has a lot of things for people to do
-Good advisers that can help me decide what class/professor I should have
-Some of the people do not speak very good English, so it is hard to ask, for example, when applying or all over campus.
-Too many people and not enough classes
-People who study on the weekends
-People just being flat out rude
-Some professors are very insensitive
-Studying in the library becomes an inapporpriate chit-chat session
-A lack of supervision when the k-12 schools visit here
-Trying to get into the university and be given a run aroundOverall, I would give the school a 6.5 out of 10 and there are some things that need to improve to better the quality for me and other students.
