Don/t bother wasting your time or money.Quite BrightComputer Science
Don/t bother wasting your time or money. I'm a transfer and I must say I'm way more miserable here than at the other school. The facilities are more than pathetic; the gym is literally a basement with a tiny and messy weight area. The showers are so small you can't even turn sideways without hitting something. You have about 5 options for food and none of them are healthy other than the tasteless cafeteria. As far as academics go, I learned pretty much nothing other than in my computer science class and I only had one professor care enough to help me. The campus is really nice and it's safe. The surrounding area is very dirty and not a great place to be. The social scene is mostly bars, you're in the city. There were many events for transitioning students, but they were not very organized at all and they isolate the transfers from all other students. Overall, I am extremely disappointed and regret transferring here, it was a total waste of time. I'm leaving school to work full-time because I'd rather not go to school than go here.

Zombieland - only the finest of cognitive retards may basque in their mass academic and social incompetence.
