Architecture is viewed as a time-intensive and difficultQuite BrightArchitecture
Architecture is viewed as a time-intensive and difficult major at this university but the work and the disrespectful attitudes of some professors and faculty members make it even more difficult. More than half of the people in the program have left it and of the ones that are left, most have developed a very defeatist attitude about being truly happy or well-rounded or being treated with respect. I'm very disappointed with some of the faculty in this program, although others are gems.
