I attended CC years ago and consider myQuite BrightFinance
I attended CC years ago and consider my education to have been fair but not excellent. I was only at CC for two years then transfered to a State University in California where I received an outstanding education.

I wanted and was promised a dorm tour , only to find students sitting in a hallway eating potato chips and drinking colas. They seemed friendly but unorganized. Two girls , lazy girls.

I attended a private high SCHOOL where I already had Calculus. My minor was Math, Calculus was an advanced class at CC which seemed odd. I had much tougher classes in high school.The school was ok but too easy.

Question
Ugh.AverageOther
Ugh. If you are just looking to sail through college on someone else's back, this is the place to go. If you feel like working your butt off so others can ride on you back, this is the place to go. If you actually want to learn and be competitive in the employment world, don't bother. I am graduating this fall with a 3.9 GPA, and I know NOTHING because I spent my time on ridiculous group projects, where everyone gets the same grade regardless of what they do. Professors don't and in some cases can't explain homework assignments. I had a class with a girl who missed over half the classes, never did her part of the group project and showed up drunk and still passed with a good grade and laughed about it the whole time. So yeah, if you're looking for a diploma that is no work and has no value, this is a great place. If you want to learn, are striving to be successful in your field, or want to graduate with any more information than you had in HS, don't bother. Put your money into a community college and transfer somewhere more appropriate.

Question
Big waste of tuition money.Quite BrightAccounting
Big waste of tuition money. As a non traditional student who already holds a degree, I can say I learned more at community college than I have here. There are senior business students who don't know how to read financial statements and don't know the difference between revenues and profits. Professors have "real world" experience, but when you ask them to do a homework problem or explain something in detail, they usually can't. Classes consist of professors reading power point slides to you but never teaching. I've seen students get caught cheating and still pass-because the professors admit they just want them out of their hair. The problem with that approach is that these people get out in the real world and employers realize they know nothing, and my degree is cheapened because of it. I would not hire a Centenary student, no matter what their grades or references, because I know they never were taught anything useful.
