“I slacked off in high school, so IJan 16 2014Political Science
There is nothing to do here but sit and stare at the wall, do drugs or get drunk. I wish I had never come here. The girls here are terrible, people use you, people are crazy, and most lack social skills. There are a lot of homosexuals here, I have nothing against them at all but I have noticed an abundance of them. The 'international' kids stand outside of one of the classroom buildings and chain smoke cigarettes like it's cool again.
The teachers are terrible. Most of them do not plan class out and just 'wing it'. I have an English teacher who cannot even get full sentences out of her mouth. The University decided it was time to start writing more papers and has made every class write a lot of papers. Too many papers, I'm not exaggerating one bit. My advisor has changed three times without my knowledge.
Campus Living is terrible. The school advertises to every Catholic school in the nation attracting a particular crowd. These people are snotty and don't socialize. Everyone is glued to their cellphones, and ignore the rest of the world. 90% of the people you pass are wearing headphones. I mean come on, how can you live life listening to music on your iPhone all day? I hate the way the world is moving, especially with technology and how stupid people use it. Tune in with the world people it's actually quite interesting once and a while. You're just gonna love the person you become here.
“I am on On-line student that wil graduateDec 09 2013Business - Management and Administration
I WILL CONTINUE TO FIND OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE MY OVERALL DISAPPOINTMENT WITH SLU AND P;AN TO REGISTER MY CONCERNS TO THE ACCREDITATION ASSOICIATION
Student advisors are useful in the first and last term; ONLY!!
Adminsitation and faculty are not responsive and appear to just go through the motions. Syallabus and learning modules provide conflicting information. Coursework is often simplistic and the derrived skills are dis-appointing. This has been brought to the attention to the universty staff and the non-chalance reflected in the replies (if you get them) is very disconcerting.
The 8 week term is the strongest attribute of the University followed by the on-line payment system and registration system. (They will get their money!!)
It appears that the code of ethics applies only to the students.
Custom textbooks are costly and are thinly vieled attempts to get professors published.If SLU is representative of all of the hype associated with higher education then we are in a sad stated of affairs.
“I'm going to type this in capital lettersNov 25 2013Psychology
Test questions are misspelled, there are not clearly defined expectations, teachers do not go by the syllabus, class attendance is often worth as much of your grade as the final, percentages of total grade for each assignment are ridiculous (10 page paper = 10 points, 1 page paper = 10 points, Class participation = 10 points, Midterm = 6 points, all the same class) Most questions are entirely open ended with no real answer, lectures are very poor and unplanned, but compulsory (worth as much as the final) and everything is extremely dumbed down (Most of my assignments seem to be at a 6th grade level). It's really just horrible, and yet incredibly expensive.Do not attend Saint Leo University's Tallahassee branch for Psychology. Just do yourself a favor and don't.
