I transferred there from a community college andQuite BrightVideo/Media
I transferred there from a community college and spent 2 1/2 years, 1/2 year was a full summer session, and completed a radio/tv major and a business minor. I felt like the time spent was a waste as after having graduated I found myself 5-10 years behind technology wise from what I was taught and what was currently being used in the department.

The department actually had a film chain! We're talking about the old system in which a 16/35mm film could be either aired on TV or more so transferred to a video tape. But I'm not sure if that even worked as no film could be found but instead we used the 35mm slide portion. That's right, the same type of slides when watching grandma's trip to the Grand Canyon.

Field equipment: A somewhat decent camera system but tied, and I mean tied by a cable to an older system A 3/4" videotape deck. Imagine dragging that around.

Jobs and post-grad support. The department didn't really help on that but then again neither did the university career center. The career center had no idea what my major was about as they only had a couple of binders of jobs, most of which were geared toward teaching jobs. But most were outdated/expired.For me, it was a complete was of time and money as I never did find work in my major field. That's right, nothing and it has been almost 20 years since I graduated.

This is a perfect fit for me.BrightSocial Work
This is a perfect fit for me. But my advice is have some idea what area you are interested in and make sure to find a college that can offer courses to meet your needs.

This is an excellent place if you are interested in the field of Agriculture (wonderful topnotch pre-vet), IT, Social Work, and recently adopted a Nursing school. There is much more but these are only some of the fields I have any experience in.Just do a little research and get involved were ever you go!

There is good and bad in every schoolAverageBiology
There is good and bad in every school and there will always be people that make your college experience a living hell. However, in this campus you get great quality education for a fare price. It does have extra curricular activities but most often no one knows about them due to arrogance in who runs them. All the departments of science are great except for the chemistry department. Our education and business departments are outstanding! The department of Residential Living and Learning also is a disgust. They don't know who you are most of the time and the residence halls are extremely terrible to live in. There is nothing to do in the city but that is actually not the point for attending school. Professors are very respectful and they will not rest until you are helped and you get what you want. You will occasionally run into someone who teaches that does't pronounce English well but they are however very knowledgable in the subject they teach. Although this college is small and continues to be a commuter college for the most part, it is not so terrible. If you are looking for a party school where you can waste your money then go elsewhere. This college is in the middle of no where but it allows students to focus in their studies. I have never run into a student who was insecure about this college. However, people that do work in the financial aid department or someone who holds a front desk position are very arrogant and rude but they come around when you talk to human resources. Great education for your money! Networking is very easy here if you are serious about your future.
