This college is absolutely miserable.Quite BrightBiology
This college is absolutely miserable. I've earned degrees in other places already and this one is the only one I regret. The faculty, at least in the science are horrific. They are either incapable or unwilling to teach, instead they CONSTANTLY pester and hound you about going to tutoring sessions hosted by other students who have no clue how to teach you. You must spend hours outside of class trying to figure out a topic when you lack one small bit of information, because nobody there will teach or explain anything. Ever. They get insulted if you ask and direct you to a tutor anytime you ask a question. ANYTIME. I don't need help understanding anything, I need to have access to information. For all of this extra hard work you will be rewarded by teachers screaming at you when the class wont answer their questions and exams which include things that are not in the book, lecture, or online resources and being are told you should simply "know." There are no opportunities for gaining experience. The lack of clubs besides sororities is downright mind bending and the "city" it's located in consists of the college campus and a Walmart. Most of the university staff you interact with are clueless and incompetent and mad at you for lord knows what. It was a fight for me to get in-state tuition to attend this university and now all I can do is think of leaving. I've attended other universities, I regret attending this one. Go elsewhere if at all possible.

Gosh, where should I start.Quite BrightComputer Science
Gosh, where should I start... This university is an absolute waste of your money and time...glad I was able to transfer somewhere else. Absolutely horrible place. Not much resources. Not safe. Every year there are a couple of armed robberies on or around the campus... Good luck walking alone after the sunset on campus... The dorms except the newly built ones were horrible, pest invested, old, stinky, not maintained well. The administration, despite their bumped up salaries, were horrible before 2016. I heard that they had gotten themselves huge raises while the teaching faculty got almost no raise, despite teaching like half a dozen courses a semester, overloaded... So many courses were being taught by adjuncts, most of whom did not care much. Some courses did not have a TA, so the instructor could not assign any meaningful homework because did not have time to grade.

There is nothing to do in the small town, no life. The campus is dead quiet at the weekends and in the summer. But still, they forcd you to live on campus the first two years. Some faculty could hardly speak English, even some department chairs... and chairs with bad English skills seemed to hire faculty with bad English skills. Racist nepotism was widespread. Why attend here while you could attend UTD, UTA, UNT, UT Tyler, nearby. Transfer if you can, better late then never. I had friends who graduated from here and had such a hard time finding a decent job; aftee seeing all this I decided to transfer to another school. Glad I did!

So I'm only a freshman and have justBrightEducation
So I'm only a freshman and have just completed one year but I've been very disappointed in how some of the policies are set up and play out and also how the customer service is handled in administrative offices on campus. The housing absolutely sucks! Some of those dorms are where dreams go to die. You have to be super lucky to not end up in the dorms that are completely awful. Whitley and Smith will make you want to drop out. The major problem I have with housing is that they trick you into a two year on campus contract if you're not careful. Then they make it practically impossible to get out of. I refuse to live on campus another year! Fire alarms are pulled, people run up and down the hall making the floor shake, and they make the entire dorm smell like weed on a Tuesday night when you're trying to cram for a test. I can't! So we are having to do all these back bends to get me out of the contract. They are only doing it to get money out of us for another year. It's greedy! I'm paying enough for tuition and books. On top of that they don't know how to help me get information. When trying to find out if a credit transfer from community college I called like 10 times with no answer and no call back. That happened for a few days. Messages were left and ignored for days! That's ridiculous. The education department is great and the professors are cool but the way this school is run is terrible. I'm probably going to have to transfer somewhere else all because of their bad policies. It's a shame because the actual education is pretty decent.
