The UAS program is awful.BrightOther
The UAS program is awful. The program director is an arrogant self righteous jerk. Likes to tell stories about his FBI study. His lectures are dry, boring and half the stuff you learn is from a book that isn't required - but it really is required. He held our mid term test in his UAS class for six weeks after the test was finished. He also cancels class, a lot. The rest of the aviation professors are okay. The guy who teaches aviation law is excellent and probably the smartest guy I've ever met. He has tons of experience in the industry. He's also a UAS professor who's actually flown a bunch of hours in drones. Like wise, my meteorology professor was top notch as well as most of the flight instructors.

The department chairs were never around, ever! You literally had to get a detective to find them. One of my professors complained that one of the chairs is running a bar or something. Probably explains his absenteeism.

The school itself is facing financial troubles as well. They "lost millions of dollars and classes are being cut for the Fall 2020 semester. It's going to make it hard to graduate on time. The president of the university, I've heard, is the reason Lewis has fallen so low.I'm considering transferring to Embry-Riddle - I've just about had enough of this place.

I can't believe this passes as higher education!Business - Management and Administration
I can't believe this passes as higher education! Six years ago Lewis University used to be a top tiered academic power house. That has changed with the introduction of Dr. Livingston. You don't need to study for graduate level exams. Professors do not read papers and academic dishonesty is swept under the rug. This is the new Illinois Institute of Technology. If you want to pay for a grad degree and get that piece of paper this is the school for you. If your savvy and focused on getting something out of graduate school steer clear. Everyone in the programs recognizes how easy it is. It's not just you! Run!

Avoid this school at all costs.AverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Avoid this school at all costs. The place is full of misleading liars trying to get your money. Instead of opportunities you will get excuses why your degree from th isn't helping you. The HR director Lori Misheck actually told me go work at McDonald's. Career services is a joke and most of everybody that teaches and works here has never had a real job or had to get on, also they look down at their graduates and won't hire them. Aist as expensive as DePaul please avoid this place at all costs.
