A small school that is struggling financially soSuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
A small school that is struggling financially so their are no valuable resources for you to excel at this school. Faculty that is biased on who you are not on what your performance is or participation. Would rather see you fail than succeed. No real life teachings or minimal opportunities for internship of future employment. small population on students that are close minded and stay with their cliques and judgmental. High school type of atmosphere and childish from students to faculty.

Question
As a bottom tier Kentucky Wesleyan College shouldAverageEducation
As a bottom tier Kentucky Wesleyan College should be a last choice. The school has its fair share of dedicated faculty but deserves a rating of D- to F in terms of:


student opportunity, learning facilities (high schools in Owensboro, KY have better classroom technology)

student and campus life activities are a joke so do not expect anything above junior high events...they put out water slides and like 15 people showed up...most of them staff

facilities and lab equipment are horribly out-of-date. Look at ALL the dorms not just the one (1) they tried to renovate. Talk about bait and switch...vast majority are creepy and disgusting.

sports are a joke. The football team is like 6 and 100. The basketball program acts like their glory years of 20 years ago were last year. The women's softball coach was asked to leave because????

Really, the best thing about the college is parking availability because the campus is all but empty. There is supposed to be 1,200 student and they have like 480 on campus! You get all this and student debt because it's not like the place is cheep. Run away...

Question
The head of Criminal Justice, Dr/Captain Ken Ayers,Quite BrightCriminal
The head of Criminal Justice, Dr/Captain Ken Ayers, is also advisor to all CJ majors. He doesn't even attend commencement and is in a drunken stupor all summer, every summer sailing his boat in the Caribbean. This is his second job. Nude sailing cruises: http://www.soulofthecaribbean.com/nudesailing/captain.htm If a student has a question during these three months or opts to take an internship, they are completely alone. He told his class numerous times that he gets paid more for nude sailing in the summer than teaching at KWC. We really know where we stand on his priority list.

I was one of the few students that suffered through Dr. Bruce Gay's reign. He admitted to hating all Jamaicans during lecture and elaborated by stating how seeing a man with dreads just makes his throat tighten and his face hot. This man was inconsistent in his teachings. On Tuesday ?A? would be the correct answer and on Thursday ?A? was wrong, we should have chosen ?D? for the same question. He was incompetent and ignorant and often quoted ?The 700 Club? This man was simply not an intellectual. He was a hate-filled, bitter man. My final was 38 pages long and all short answer and essay. Unrealistic. I don't think he even graded it, but simply assigned a grade. Memorization, intense, temporary, memorization is all he could offer his students.

KWC did not renew his contract due to all of the students? cries of agony, but this action came too late for those of us that had no choice but to take him. Not many courses are offered at this school. However, they opted to hire his wife, Sue Weaver, whom merely had her Master?s, to take over his courses. I guess the hiring process is a popularity contest.

I graduated a year ago and still have not been able to utilize my degree from this private $23,000/yr college. The career assistance for alumni is a joke. The best jobs they can direct you to are for AT&T or the local YMCA for $8/hr.When I chose this major I was shown an elaborate list of all the jobs for which I would be qualified upon completion. Where is that list now?
