The State University of New York Empire State College - Comments and Student Experiences|
Additionally, if you're a white male and you're a straight A student, that doesn't mean anything to anyone there. Basically, you're expected to do well academically. But if you're black and a straight A student, they'll appoint you to all sort of leadership position. If you're black and woman? Forget it. You just may be recommended for the SUNY Chancellor's award. The racism exists for one reason: the college's sales angle towards New York State's urban centers. Just prepare for that.
Professors do not teach. I was told I would have ONE ON ONE time with a professor for my math class. What really happened was that I had to TEACH MYSELF CALCULUS and any time I met with the professor she was irritated with me for not understanding the curriculum. She was annoyed and would constantly make comments about how I "just didn't want to learn it" or I "just have to want to understand it". I spent countless hours studying and trying to learn from YouTube videos instead being taught anything.
Even classes where I naturally do well had issues. I already know how to paint, and got an A in my painting class. When I started planning my next semester, my painting professor, out of nowhere, told me I would probably not be successful at another class and would have to come in during the summer. She told me I would not be allowed to bring my daughter to our meetings because "people would complain" (this is a school intended for working adults and adults with children, who often are brought to the school). I felt I had to skip the second semester and I decided to try to take any remaining classes cross registered at a different school.
This is the laziest most unorganized school I have ever been to.
No not go here unless absolutely necessary.Also, if you are a veteran, be aware that they WILL NOT give exemptions to former military for immunization records like other schools will. Make sure you have your military health records!
Also, this college is under SUNY. That's well recognized and respected. My only issue with the school would be that there are some times when the professors would have time off and I would email them, but get an automatic reply saying they were away. Yet, eventually the professor would reply. So i just wished that there was a heads up when professors were going away, even though they still do reply to your emails.
