Question
We're rated as one of the lowest schoolsBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
We're rated as one of the lowest schools for student satisfaction, and everyone on campus knows it. The things they teach is mostly useless, and I see the same thing happen over and over -- people stop doing the pointless work, start making bad grades, and change majors to management (reputed the easiest major). There's nothing to do on campus save for getting drunk and stoned, and there are plenty of people who do that. Before I came I heard the school was good for Computer Science -- it is afterall a big major at the school. However, this is not a Computer Science school, and they teach you useless languages such as "Squeak", which you'll never use again in your life.

Question
Although It is a very nice campus, thereBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Although It is a very nice campus, there is nothing to do here. Going to prov gets old and since i am strictly business i want something else. I will show you the walk. The dorms suck, you cant have ne parties or any kegs on campus. Even if you are 21 you can not walk around with alcohol. It is essentially a dry campus we dont even have an on campus pub. So many kids make fun of me for being short. I am 5 2 and everywhere i go i here comments. Off campus parties are just like high school ones maybe even worse cuz they get broken up in 20 mins. Administration is very bitchy they will do nething to fine you. They have so much pride in their architecture and law schools that they try to prevent ne type of thing that could give them a negative name.

pros: nice gym and facilitiescons: everything i mentioned before plus the girls here are very ugly, i think they were better looking in my middle school.
