I've been a stay home parent for aboutAgriculture/Horticulture
I've been a stay home parent for about 10 years. I wish I had stayed active in the work force at least part-time. Presently looking for a job and due to state of economy and my out of the work force for so long is very hard to get employed regardless of my Cornell degree and past experience. I recommend any young student to learn a trade as well as going to college. I'm a hairstylist by trade and it's been my mainstay lately, just like it did back when attending college.

Question
In my particular case, my own department didQuite BrightArchitecture
In my particular case, my own department did a good job of watching over students during the entire course of the program. In particular, the small class sizes helped to build strong relationships between students, faculty, and staff.

The university at large, however, treated students from my department very differently. I think because we will not graduate to make a lot of money, and donate a lot of money, the university tended to look at us as unimportant and often failed to respect students and to my particular annoyance, also treated some of our professors and staff very poorly. It was personally offensive to me that some of our staff worked extra hours for free so that students had adequate access to equipment we needed to maintain the quality of our education. The best schools no only treat students well, but also realize that retention of good professors and staff contribute to the overall quality of education. The university's failure to approve money to our college (there are 7 at cornell) was incredibly disappointing. To sum it up. Individual departments and colleges are run very competently and most professors will treat you well and have willing moved to the small town of Ithaca because they enjoy teaching. The university system, however, is run like a corporation and both students and staff are treated accordingly.
