This school is an absolute joke.Quite BrightCommunications
This school is an absolute joke. It started out okay. But soon, they started accepting swarms of athletes regardless of their actual academic capacity. And then, when that lawsuit rolled around- their true colors came out. If you want to go to a school where you will be taught by passive-aggressive nuns, never be challenged and instead spend your days doing busy work, then have nothing to do at night, this is the school for you. The athletes (most of the population by now) think they're above everyone and have even taken to calling non-athletes "NARP"s (Non-Athletic Regular People). Besides quiet dorm parties (since it is a dry campus) or regular off-campus parties, there isn't really much else to do since everything in the town surrounding the college closes by 5 PM. The transfer rate is high and growing, and chances are you'll meet at least one person who wishes they could transfer but won't because other schools don't accept our credits. Did I mention the bug-infested food and buildings that are literally falling apart, and nobody is doing anything about it? Or the amount of people who have almost dropped out because financial aid continuously screwed them over? Save your time and money, DO NOT go to CHC. It will be the biggest regret of your life.

Students were snobby, schoolComputer Science
Students were snobby, school work was easy, some teachers made students do an unnecessary amount of reading, much of which had nothing to do with actual tests or assignments.

I went to the office to speak withQuite Bright
I went to the office to speak with someone in charge about some inappropriate things that a instructor was saying to me.The college employee who work in the office went back and informed the instructor of my name and things only got worse for me. The instructor then informed me that no one would believe me over hem and that known he is going to fail me as a result of me telling the college what he had said.The instructor did just as he said he would and failed me.I followed the college polices which the college did not and months later after several letters the college gave ma a meeting without a chairadonna. I was told by the dean that they were the chair. I was also told that i could not bring anyone with me and if i did their would be no meeting at all.This meeting consisted of the dean three employees from the college and the instructor i was told what i could and could not talk about at the meeting and if i spoke about what was said to me by the instructor i would be kicked out of college. I had no rights as fare as this college was concerned at this meeting. I proved that the grade was passing but the college is still refusing to release me degree. I was told by a college official that i f@@@@@ scud hem by opening up my mouth. I sent letters out to the vice president,president and others who are in charge of running the college.They did nothing to resolve this matter.IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR RIGHTS VIOLATED PLEASE RUN FARE FROM THIS COLLEGE.
