This is a joke of an institutionJan 30 2018Unknown
This is a joke of an institution. Classes fill up within an hour of registration and they make no effort to help students meet graduation requirements. The professors are slow to post grades. It typically takes a month for final grades to be released. Once, I waited three months. No one at this University does their job.
it is a nice campus, academics is okSep 28 2013Unknown
it is a nice campus, academics is ok. When it comes to parties or doing activities it gets really boring doing the same thing every weekend. theres not much diversity and yes the stereotype of students coming from rich families is true, everybody is always trying show off what daddy bought them. It's basically like high school, you have your little groups of 3 or 4 friends and then nobody else is included. Im transferring next semester, because you really don't get the college experience. I find this college to be way overpriced, but then again like said you will most likely see students that come from wealthy families.
Save yourself the agony, please do not goApr 21 2012English
Save yourself the agony, please do not go here. Student morale is horrendous, it is disheartening having to pass through this campus everyday to begin with, imagine how you will feel sitting in a class with mediocre classmates and disinterested, vindictive professors. Granted, I was never really sure about my choice to go here to begin with, but even after the warning of a crappy orientation experienced, I learned my lesson. They do not even deserve your money, and in the future I intend on hopefully making the school aware of all of its shortcomings to spare the discouragement of future students. The faculty really failed at making a possibly great school excellent. If they stopped mowing the lawns, maybe they would realize this.
