At the beginning of my freshman year ofAverageVideo/Media
At the beginning of my freshman year of college, I met with my guidance counselor, who was also the department chair and a professor. While I wanted to take 12 credits a semester, he talked me into taking 18 credits, plus I had to work part-time because I was a broke college student and couldn't count on my parents for support. Since my guidance counselor didn't listen to what I wanted or needed, I ended up flunking out after the first year. In my opinion, he was just trying to get more money from me and didn't really care about me as a person.

Question
The nursing program is just one of theSuper BrilliantNursing
The nursing program is just one of the worst programs out there if not the worst. The students are just few and afraid to talk about issues concerning them. The teachers dont really teach but read of power points, are manipulative and condescending. This is the worst school that I would ever imagine. The professors in the nursing program are not meant to be teachers but just nurses. They are not even approachable. I graduted from this school and I would advice those who wanna join this school's nursing program not to join. Do yourself a favor.

Question
I was essentially forced into this collage forQuite BrightNursing
I was essentially forced into this collage for financial reasons. I came into this school anticipating a peaceful, calm atmosphere where I would be left alone to do my thing (school) and the faculty would be there if I needed them. What I got is not what I expected at all.

The dorms are VERY loud, the deans are snooty and they give off a very 'I don't make the rules' vibe, which is very annoying to me. If you are SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST, you will like this collage, if you are ANY other belief you will loath it. Mandatory worships, 3 a week. You are required to attend worships at 9:30PM and a pointless assembly every single week that consists of song and a half-ass tossed together 'sermon' by a student. There is a midnight curfew for the dorms. If you are even a single minute late, you get a whopping $25 fine. Each. Time. EACH worship you miss a month you get fined $15. Every assembly you miss you get fined $20.Mandatory tutoring even for the kids with As in the class. You have to go for an entire hour each week no matter what graded you are making in the class which makes for holding a job outside of school essentially IMPOSSIBLE. The dorms are liveable, but leave something to be desired. Another way they soak money out of you is making you pay a DOLLAR to wash your clothes, and another dollar to dry them!! So yes, tuition is low, but they make up for that with fineing you for everything imaginable. THEY DO NOT TREAT YOU LIKE AN ADULT, THEY TREAT YOU LIKE A HIGHSCHOOL DROPOUT. If you enjoy being talked down to and having no personal time to do ANYTHING this is the school for you, but if you enjoy being an adult and doing adult things, DONT COME HERE.
