I don't feel safeBrightNutrition
I don't feel safe here anymore. The school is in a terrible neighborhood. Students are constantly getting robbed on campus. I got violently threatened on campus, and it was swept under the rug. The apartments near campus are roach invested. I hate it here.

Question
This is a great affordable university.Quite BrightMusic - Composition/Theory
This is a great affordable university. However, you absolutely must be your own advocate. It's not that advising staff can't or won't help, but they are generally so disorganized that they won't attempt to fix any issues until you explicitly and directly address them. My correct major wasn't in the computer system until my second semester. I've had to schedule meetings with my advisor to ensure that I graduate on time with all the right credits. My advisor has never contacted me about scheduling without my initiation. This is not the school for you if you are incapable of keeping track of every possible responsibility. That said, gen ed classes are incredibly easy. Far easier than any AP or Honors course I took in high school. However, classes associated with your major are incredibly challenging.
