If it weren't for being close to family, I would have transferred schools after my first year. Professors at CSU-Pueblo is the only thing that the school has going for it. Everyone that I have encountered who works in Administration is extremely rude, and not any help whatsoever. When it comes to relaying information here, it simply does not get done efficiently-- the customer service at the school is incredibly lacking.
CSU-Pueblo is a joke. The administration is crumbling and staff are leaving at an alarming rate. The new President sucks. The Dean of Students is worse. Thought things couldn't get worse than Dr. Dadabhoy but Dean Gifford is ancient, has dementia and treats staff and students poorly. Academic standards- do they even have them? Seriously most professors are terrible, some sleep with students and others provide them with alcohol. The good staff and faculty are not valued and thus leave or are let go. Social life is ok if you have a vehicle so you can drive somewhere to have one. Alcohol and drugs are easily accessible. Easy to Party in the halls.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts program DOES NOT offer enough art classes in some emphasis areas. Be warned that unless your emphasis area is just ceramics, you will be unable to get enough credits to graduate. Furthermore, in academic classes, students who were found to be cheating (on multiple occasions) were still able to pass the class in question. This alone is fairly depressing to those who studied hard. Athletes were not expected to even show up to class in order to pass.
