The University is NOT a smooth ship. There are always at least ten people to see or thirty phone calls to make before you can start to get anything done. Everytime you speak to someone, there are different rules and regulations in the University. The advisor system is lousy--my advisor actually caused me to have to be in school for an extra year. You might be lucky and have a great professor once in a while but generally they are nothing special. |
The education programs are interesting because there are no classes integrating subjects with teaching except math. For instance, English or Social Studies education majors have to take english and history classes as well as education classes but the two are never integrated into a class called teaching social studies.
The university in general is extremely frustrating. It may be beautiful and cheap but sometimes the headache alone is worth going to a smooth riding and well put together university.
I could go on and on with my rant, but I'm currently looking into schools I can transfer to so that's wont work.

| It's hard to get an adviser that is actually interested in you and helps you along. My adviser forgot to mention a few things which is costing me an extra year in school. Also, the departments don't speak to one another--for instance--financial aid and the bursar and your individual systems don't speak so if you are changing your info with one you gotta do it with all three:) The non-academic departments (Bursar, Financial Aid, etc) are very hard to get around--they don't run a smooth ship. They're usually unfriendly as well. Signing up for classes is very complicated. The fact that the university doesn't work as one cohesive entity, its almost not even worth the money. |

This school has excellent faculty, the Sociology program is filled with knowledgable professors who care and are helpful with all your needs. I actually feel like I am learning in the program and the theories of Sociology has now become an even greater passion of mine. |
The administrative staff is another story all together. They are totally clueless as to what their jobs are and are of no help when it comes to issues. There is a serious disconnect of communication between the Fincancial Aid dept, the registrar and the bursars office. If you have an issue with one you have an issue with all since no one there knows anything about ANYTHING. If you have an admin issue then consider yourself doomed. Never have I come across a system so chaotic and disheveled and disorganized. The old saying that you get what you pay for is true, I transfered from Bard College to Ithaca College and finished my undergrad there and I have never come across a system such as this where the admin staff are a bunch of pre schoolers!
Point of warning do not attend this school, unless you are into putting your trust into a system run by losers!
