This college is pretty awful

Mar 09 2014Biology
This college is pretty awful. It might start off nice freshmen and sophomore year but by junior and senior year you'll start to hate it. They treat you like children. No guests during finals, only 4 people can visit you a month so you if you have a significant other who goes to another school they can sleep over 4 times a month so a weekend and a half.

The people are nice if you are lucky enough to find the good ones. Most of them couldn't get into other colleges or just couldn't afford to go elsewhere.

Administration and Staff:

The administration is rude and filled with idiots. Don't even bother with the bursar they just treat you like a walking atm.

The "professors"are nice but more than 50% of them are adjunct and at most have a masters degree. If you're out of state you're getting a second rate education for over 25,000 dollars a year.

Food:The food is pretty awful and you'll end up eating pizza, burgers and stir-fry for dinner every night. The dining hall closes at 7 so unless you spend real money or the expensive "flex points" you better hope your schedule allows you to eat dinner before 7.

Don't come here if you want to play womens basketball. The worst coach I have ever seen in Couch Boucher. He has been there 25 years and is no longer viable. He is just terrible. Go somewhere else people if you want to play basketball here.

The people at this college are nice and approachable but when it comes down to money at this college everything goes to the shitter. The bursars office does not send you any updates on the bills and that can cause you to have over due bills and also to have trouble signing up for classes for the next semester. The Elliot Center which is where you pay for all your bills and sign up for classes and also where the health center is and it is full of rude, idiotic people who either hate their jobs so they don't perform them well or have no idea how to perform their jobs. When you go in there be prepared to leave angry, they call you in to tell you things that you could be told through e-mail so you waste your gas and time to do something that could be sent through letters or e-mails. The faculty have a mix of people who are extremely helpful to people who could give less than a shit about your existence. The classes range from being easy to being as hard as humanly possible with the expectation that you memorize everything that you have learned just so that you can put it down on paper during a test the next time you have one.

The Health center is also a huge shit show where half the time no one is there or people are there and you wait a half hour to an hour to be treated. It is also up 3 flights of stairs, though there is an elevator many people choose not to use it because it is so old. They also either state that no matter if you have a broken leg or a really bad headache they insist that you are either pregnant or have mono and would like to perform a test that costs 20 to 50 dollars because this college is obsessed with collecting money from you.

Some students cannot even declare their major when it comes time to do that. The college likes to switch around what your major and minor is so that you constantly have to re do your major so that you can get it correct. They do not listen and they always get the information incorrect.

Class sizes are increasing because they are cutting classes and teachers and how much teachers can teach so the classes are becoming less and less personal.

They have also now put Freshman status above Senior status.
Freshman and sophomores are also now required to live on campus.You should be wary of coming here if you want to be able to register for classes easily and if you don't want to have an argument about unpaid bills every time you go to sign up for classes.
