The distance program was surprisingly really very goodFeb 28 2009Unknown
The distance program was surprisingly really very good. It suffers from not being able to hang on to talent, but the instructors were excellent, varied in a way I would not have gotten from traditional classes, and I really like the distance experience for library science. The administrative stuff is a mess, but it usually is. The strength of the program is that you can do it while you work. They really make it easy to do that. They also have very intelligent and demanding instruction. I attended a class or two "on campus" but the facilities were at a location that is not directly on campus. They were in good facilities, but the campus itself suffers from aging buildings and outdated infrastructure.

What I liked most was the level of involvement I felt while there, and they were cutting edge with the distance program, teaching remote reference and learning education software. They benefit immensely from the consortium with NCSU, which is where I was able to do my library research. Their library was lacking for the kind of research I had to do.

I think they get an undeserved bad rep for being a traditionally african american school, but there is real talent, real learning (in my program, at least) and real determination there. I would not move on campus though.
