I was robbed going here.
My stuff was robbed.
My tires were slashed.
The main gate for safety got broken through, bolt cutters and ppl started getting onto university through the back area by cutting the fence line randomly.

Gangs on campus.
Avid use of drugs.
Police force does a lot of work, but its mostly criminals that don't even go to the school.
"Pro Ratings" for meals mean you get charged 30x the normal rate even in state.
Buy books in cash, don't show your student ID and get the shelf price.
The people are decent, but the drug use is rampant there.
Dorms get broken into regularly from people outside of the community.
Don't bring anything valuable if you live on campus. [don't do it]
Go to succeed, and move on.
Administration loathes you if you're not part of the campus strategic demographics.Get ready to work hard and be hated for being better.

Well I've only been here for a littleBrightMechanical Engineering
Well I've only been here for a little over a year, but I would fast forward my time here if I could. Living here on campus is not horrible, but it's not great either (I would say for the average student). There's a large party crowd here, so that might be nice for some, but it brings unnecessary problems (e.g. fighting, pregnancies, theft). Truthfully, that's inherent to most colleges out there. I suppose you could say that there is heavy drug use as well. Anyways, advising is trash. Academics are what you make it. Most students get stuck into remedial math (Math 101), so take your placement test serious. I got lucky enough to have enthusiastic, likable teachers for my general studies, and my engineering teachers have been decent. If you work hard to have a complete understanding of your studies then it will pay off. Good luck if you choose to come here as well.

This is by far the WORST university youBrightUndecided
This is by far the WORST university you could ever go to. you would be better off just not going to college if you contemplate going here. i dropped out after 1 semester cause i couldn't do it. the people are rude. the staff don't care, let alone do any of the teachers speak a lick of english. its majority black which shouldn't be a problem, too bad the biggest problem is being white and going there. if your black you will fit right in and probably love the school if your a minority like if your white. nope. the people in the area hate the kids who go there, there's a lot of violence, basically every night we heard sirens and some one was always getting attacked. that was a few years ago when i went there. recently tried to order a transcript from them so i could go to another school. completely unhelpful. my payment processed twice and they wouldn't remove one order so now i paid 6 bucks to get 1 transcript. you must be retarded to go there. no one is bright. and none of the staff care even though they claim to.
