As far as I've seen, the faculty areBrightComputer Science
As far as I've seen, the faculty are absolutely great and many are willing to go to the end of the Earth to help you in your education. I have nothing but the utmost respect for my instructors. The school as an organization is absolutely terrible. They do not care about the students and basically just treat us as if we were a cash cow. They find nearly every possible way to cut corners or to spend money on lavish things that we do not need.

Question
This school is a joke.AverageEducation
This school is a joke. They are in it for your money. I advice you to go somewhere else and get your education. Especially if you have an IEP. They don't like giving you help. In order for you to get help you have to take like a DNA test, pee test, and blood work. Ok not that much but they want proof you are retarded or what ever. That's pathetic I would say. I wouldn't want them up in my business.

Question
Put in-coming freshman inBrightPhysical Therapy/Exercise Science
Put in-coming freshman in human anatomy course with a professor who has never taught the course and is new to the university. The professor will not help and the help center had no tutors available for the course. At least 3/4 of the class has a grade below 50%.
