School mandates to register through Counselors until you

Apr 19 2011Accounting
School mandates to register through Counselors until you reach 30 credit hours. They see no more than 6 students per hour. Obviously there are so many students left out that need to come back and wait and wait. Registering should be an easy task and online. Counselors should be seen only per student request, not mandatory!!!

I attended a summer class at Parkland, and the faculty and staff 'stressed' student responsibility, when they themselves took little to no responsibility for their own work. I am a University student where I receive help and plenty of information and Parkland was not even close to where it should be with helpfulness or approach-ability. It was also quite a 'blow-off' school as a whole.

Basically, the only people who come to Parkland are townies who have lived here forever. I came from a different city naively thinking that I would meet people, but nobody talks. Or looks at each other. Or acknowledges each others existence. Parkland tries to provide some cool extracurricular stuff (the art gallery is actually super impressive), but the students couldn't care less so most ideas fall flat.

As far as academics go, I haven't been completely challenged in a course yet. Some courses, syllabuses, etc. have been incoherent and not worth taking. Believe me, I would never have classified a class as "incoherent" before coming to parkland, but they definitely occur on this campus!

Some of the faculty is knowledgeable and helpful, others have no idea what's going on. That really depends on who you work with. I've had some amazing professors, and some definitely not-so-amazing ones.In all reality, if you can go to another school, do it. I know people come to community colleges for financial reasons, but if you can, go to some cheap state school where you can at least meet people. You will definitely have more luck somewhere else!
