You are a number.Quite BrightSociology
You are a number. They want more students because they are desperate for money. Now they're building a water park on campus. I'm embarrassed that my alma mater is touting that they have a water park. What about academics? It's an easy ride, don't expect to be challenged. They'll let anyone in who can pay. The reward for all of this is a degree that no one respects. And I can't really blame them.

Undergrad was in the sciences and I wentBrightComputer Science
Undergrad was in the sciences and I went back to get a second degree, both at CSU. My high school classes were far more challenging than this. When I graduated with my first degree, I had an employer tell me they don't hire CSU students because they don't know even the basics of what is expected. Foolish of me to come back, but I thought since the change to University status and semesters, maybe things would be different. They are even worse, didn't know that could be possible. Classmates seem more interested in being given their grade than actually learning anything. In my first class the professor comments on needing to give everyone a good grade so they can keep their Hope scholarship. The curve is sad, a lot of these people should not be in college and I have no idea how they managed to earn the grant to begin with, I suppose the highschools are curving ridiculously now, too. If you want a degree with no effort and come out not knowing anything to boot, CSU is your school. I don't know why the professors feel the need to float the students so they can keep their Hope scholarship, it's their choice to work hard and pass...or fail...if they lose their grant that is their fault. Don't lower academic standards and subsequently render degrees useless in the process. I'm transferring back out to a state where students must apply some effort and sacrifice to afford their education, at least then there is an interest in earning a worthwhile education and doing the work for it.
