This is school is great academically

Dec 11 2010Accounting
This is school is great academically. The accounting program is great here. However, this school is horrible operationally. Parking is never availabel and the laundry rooms are about 1 for every three dorms. Then they only have 10 washers and dryers in each room when they are hundreds of kids living in those dorms. THey also have bad food and the full meal plan is not full at all. You easily run out every week if you like a normal human being. THis school is good academically and bad operationally.

I have always been interested in the sports

Sep 12 2010Athletics/Training
I have always been interested in the sports environment and was hoping that a smaller school would give me the opportunity to gain more hands on learning. The program itself is put together well I just wish it was at a different school. The student solutions center which is designed to help solve any problems we may have at the school is more of a "you did this wrong" type of place than a "this is what we can do to help" program. And safety is an issue as well. Last year there were a few students hit by a truck crossing the road on campus, which they have atleast attempted to address; then there was the case of someone dressed up in a costume harassing students on campus. I see security on their golf carts, however that is all I see. On a side note they do like to write tickets to visiting people (i.e. parents frank lloyd wright photographers). Overall I think this school is very attractive during visits, but when you're there for a period of time lots of little things add up to a less than stellar college experience.

Aesthetically the campus is very pleasing for those

Sep 11 2010Political Science
Aesthetically the campus is very pleasing for those that like an abundance of plant life and decorative fountains. There are so many "gardens" it is a varietable maze to travel from class to class while dodging the perpetual lawn maintenance crews. The obvious effort to maintain the surface of the campus is completely lacking in the maintenance of the actual facilities. Throughout the classrooms you will find loose wires and rotted or rotting tiles and sections of wall. Before applying I would strongly recomend walking through a large portion of the buildings in the heat of the summer to perhaps experience a class with no A/C and an outside tempurature of 95+ degrees. Staff are generally friendly up until the point you ask them to do their job. They will talk to you all day about the gardens and weather, but as soon as you need something other than a friendly conversation prepare to be given the run around with you being told in every way that you are the one making things so difficult.
