Its a good valueBrightUndecided
Its a good value for your money BUT you should go here if you are content with having NO social life. mostly old people that go here so youre probably not going to meet much girls/guys.

Where do I start.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
Where do I start...well I just enrolled for a course in the spring and was dropped for no payment the same day....Usually a bill is sent. 2-3 hours of enrollment in the class and I'm automatically withdrawn? Fall semester is not even over yet! What kind of system is this? The whole reason why I enrolled online is to avoid going to the Registrars office because the system set in place at this school is so unnecessary and unlike any other school that Ive attended that it is unbearable to deal with....I will not be attending this institution again! I am not alone on this one either. This city is in a budget crisis and yet there are hundreds of unnecessary jobs established at this school for the incompetents that linger throughout the building (And I mean set a new definition for incompetence that is almost unbelievable). Every corner turned in this building is filled with unnecessary tax dollars being spent on some incompetent individual starting at the first floor all the way up to the top! And the library? What a joke! Like checking into a prison and that is why I and many others do not even bother....Aside from most instructors, the faculty/administration are very rude while lacking common sense! You can check any blog on the net and get the same feedback...There is not enough room to write down all the negatives about this place. Ive already attended other universities and have never dealt with anything like this. Come see for yourself. I am taking a few classes in prep for grad school in a different field and unfortunately chose this hole. Trust me, do your research first. There are blogs about this place located on just about every search engine available. You would not believe the BS you will have to deal with here. Some words cannot even describe.
