Positive Negative Neutral Advice
Alright, so I have read the reviews postedQuite BrightComputer Engineering
Alright, so I have read the reviews posted and would like to put in my two cents. Just take a moment if you will to reflect upon this: The current enrollment at UIU is 5,242 (CollegeBoard.com). Now think about the comments on this site roughly 6 ? 15 comments. There are a few discontent people who posted on this site as opposed to 5K + who currently attend the university. If you think for a second how many people attend versus the few negative comments we have here, it's quite staggering. Simple logic will tell us that the negative comments are limited to roughly 5 ? 10% of the current enrolled population. I can tell you from my experience that this University is challenging and the professors are quick to get back to you (currently it takes 30 minutes or less for a response from my course staff). Even when communicating with the academic advisors, I get a response quickly and they are quite accurate with the information they provide. I do not get the run-a-round. So take this information as you will, but I thoroughly enjoy me experience and the education I have received from this establishment. For validity, I live in FL and I am enrolled in the MIS Online program. I am AD Air Force and I am enrolled in the MIS program, which suites my schedule well. The professor posts lectures online (including videos, power point presentations, and course material). All due dates are clearly defined and methodically assigned. Additionally, as far as the quality of material learned, I have 3 exercises, a case study, and a quiz each week, so I have to LEARN the material in order to succeed. This course keeps me very busy, it's not overwhelming, but it's not easy.

Question
I have read the above and believe thatQuite BrightPsychology
I have read the above and believe that the education I am getting at the Madison Center's Upper Iowa University is superior to the education I received at the University of Wisconsin at Madison and Edgewood College. Dr. Stein Stein has been appointed the Lead Faculty at the Madison Center and has enhanced the quality of the faculty there. He and Dr. Carola Pfortner are two of the major faculty for the psychology department. They are the best teachers I have ever had!!

I am extremely impressed with the Madison Center of Upper Iowa University. I am a psychology major and have thoroughly enjoyed the courses and instructors. Consider yourself fortunate when you take courses from Dr. Steve Stein and Carola Pfortner. They are spectacular teachers who really care about their students and what they teach.
