Spent 5 years in the occupational safety program.Quite BrightAgriculture/Horticulture
Spent 5 years in the occupational safety program. Came down to one course that multiple advisors had caused problems for me (told me that my safety work with the university was not valid safety work). Ended up getting an internship retroactively created, was then required to write a paper on the experience I never had. I ended up with my first "F" in my college career on a paper. I was not allowed to complete the program, even after taking the issue to the department, college, and even the dean's office.I published my first book a year later.

One instructor belittled a student in front ofQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
One instructor belittled a student in front of the entire class two days in a row, insinuating that the student was a baby, because she voiced a concern about the rude manor in which he "constructively criticized" her work in front of the class earlier that day. The instructor was in fact rude in the critique and several people in the class noticed.

Another incident occurred with an instructor who made a derogatory remark about the military while a students brother was in Afghanistan, she stood up for the military and he was rude to her the entire semester following the event. He assigned her a partner who never showed up or contacted her or responded to her emails, and told her she had to work with her partner or she would fail the assignment. He also put one of her projects on the wall with four other projects and told the class the reasons why the five projects were the best - she ended up with a "C" on the project while a girl whose project didn't make the top five got an "A". During a final critique one of the instructors brought her three year old and ignored him the entire time. The child was running around, screaming, and touching the projects. One of the students got up to watch her kid, because he felt like someone should. When the issue was brought to the head of the department, the student was told (by the head of the department) "It doesn't matter".

The kids are immature,Quite BrightEngineering Department
The kids are immature, closed minded and disrespectful (60%+) large portion do not speak English whatsoever. Administration puts zero effort into helping you in any way and classes are arranged so that you can not learn, but follow a strict pattern.
