How do I even begin with this school,BrightSocial Work
How do I even begin with this school, when I first came here everything was great at first, but as I stayed I noticed how rude and unsupported everyone is. The students are nothing but self-absorbed people who do not care to have a in depth conversation for once unless they are super wasted and on way to hospital. Also the faculty are a bunch of jerks, they do not really listen to you and your money goes in processor's pocket and in the athletes. Be prepared to feel left out all the time, if you are not apart of Frat/Sorority (which is 90% of campus) you will feel not apart of community. No one here is friendly and the food in the schine is absolutely outrageous. Everything here is sooooo overpriced but yet nothing good of quality in return. If you want to go to a school where the school takes your money and yet you have advisers telling you to switch majors or schools just cause...then this is a great school for you. Have never spent so much money into something that wasn't worth my investment. Unfortunately if it wasn't for the great program of social work and the fact that I am already deep in on the road to my degree, I would have let already.

Housing is a nightmare.BrightOther
Housing is a nightmare. They kinda f you over and move people in and out of rooms all the time without letting you know. Also, they accept too many freshman to the point that there isnt enough space for all the new coming freshman and the sophomores. Housing is really unorganized. If I had the chance to move to another school i would. There is a great amount of close minded assholes who have never been around people whom are not white and they let that shine through the ignorant things they say. But there are also awesome people.

Question
So many inconveniences with this University.Not so bright
So many inconveniences with this University. I'm not even a student here. I came from Florida to work in one of the chemical engineering labs over the Summer and I am so glad I'm not staying. I don't know anything about the education quality here but everything else is just utterly terrible. The location of this university is poor in every way. It's right next to a sketch neighborhood where there's always new rumors of stabbings and the nearest grocery store is 15 minutes away by car. I've been living in Haven Hall and the place is a complete Dante's Inferno. I don't care that it's old and falling apart but the RA's aren't friendly at all and there's always people keying into your room while your gone to do room checks and clean windows. The idiots running residence life here believe surge protectors and extension cords (which are definitely needed in these rooms) are fire hazards. The worst part about residence life here by far is the shitty WIFI. About every 5 minutes I lose connection and have to reload my browser. This is with the main WIFI service here for students and it's just as bad in all the other residence halls. The only good connection spots are in classroom buildings, otherwise it's practically impossible to get anything done back in your room without going insane. Also a lot of the students here (they're not even frat stars) are complete morons, running around screaming and acting ratchet. I feel bad for anyone who has to go to school here against their will.
