There is a LOT OF MONEY in thisAverageAccounting
There is a LOT OF MONEY in this college and very bad spend! Bureaucrats for administration. Poor relationship between student and admin. Teacher they are sufficient but some of them don't even know how to lecture as their first language is not English! Ghetto environment! Very close minded environment. Nobody cares they just like call the day and get $ need it for their own good. Financial Aid, Admin, community students, Library etc. Computers not update, website 1990 design, very dirty bathrooms and poorly maintain facility. Security is sufficient but not enough. No cameras no info point. This place still look a place from the 1980's. It feel a place of transaction were you park your self long enough to get your grades and move on!

Question
The school used to be great, but everQuite BrightLinguistics
The school used to be great, but ever since 2009, it started to degenerate more and more. The students aren't exactly motivated to learn, I would go as far as to say that they probably don't care about their education. The students are far from being friendly, most of them actually don't ant to talk to each other, this is Los Angeles after all. Despite what Hollywood movies might say, people prefer to be isolationists around here, just take the Red Line up to Vermont/Santa Monica and you'll see. It's probably considered to be taboo to speak to strangers around this neighborhood. The bathrooms aren't clean nor do they have toilet paper. In fact, there are several instances in which students smeared feces on the walls. There are some seriously mentally-ill individuals in this school and some people are probably criminals or are just waiting to become one. There's one guy in my Chinese class that said that he'd rape people if there were no cops around (no joke). The Chinese teacher, Mr. Liao, actually spends more time talking about himself than teaching and says a lot of good things about China despite China being Communist and because I do have some friends from China, they told me that China only hires people whom are beautiful and smart at the same time leaving people that might not be beautiful jobless. The teachers spend a lot of time talking too much about liberal politics as well and if you don't agree with them, it might affect your grade. Overall, if you're in it for a "kick-back" school this is the school for you, if you wish for a more serious school, go to LAVC instead since I've taken classes from there before.

Question
The campus is slowly falling apart, quite aQuite BrightArt & Design Department
The campus is slowly falling apart, quite a few of the students are pretty lazy and a few are psychopaths, hey it is close to Hollywood after all. I mean, I've met people that are psychopaths, or at least they claim to be psychopaths to probably attract attention. There's this one guy whose completely absorbed with video games and anime and dry humps anything he gets near as well as curses and calls everyone else inferior to himself. There's another guy I've met who talks about weird perverted stuff (i.e. lolicon) and there's another guy that's been in jail a few times because he apparently beat up a girl by slamming her head to the table (not lying). I've told people before, but they seem to be uncaring after all if you're around insane people, eventually you stop worrying so much because there's much of it coming at you. There's also a lot of crazy people or mentally ill people that come into the campus such as someone who yells at the trees and overusing the "f" word in conversations to someone who wants to receive participation in a gay porn involving necrophilia. Overall, it's a bad school, however, the teachers are pretty good despite a few of them being arrogant and giving students take-home tests.
