In some ways, extra education was a waste

Oct 05 2013Chemistry
In some ways, extra education was a waste. STEM has been in a recession/depression since the Sputnik era. UH had no concept of career counseling or advice when I was there, so no help there getting into a field that would have been more lucrative. The culture in the 70's was that the students were there for UH to collect tuition and fees, not that UH was there to serve the students. I hope that has changed.

Mar 29 2013Biology
I was estatic to transfer to this university from another major universit, however, I quickly lost this feeling once I actually unmasked the university.

Background info
1) transfered with a 3.6
2) biology major
3) have attended the university for almoost one semester
4) lived on campus for a bit however changed to offcampus after realizing how much I hated the university

Problems I had at the university
1) Terrible vibe (no social scence)
2) terrible food
3) Professors dont teach and classes are either really easy or extremly hard for no reason
4) students are mannerless
5) poor administration (unhelpful incompetent and rude)
6) campus is EXTREMLEY unsafe after daytime
7) school is money greedy
8) Poor bus transpotation ( U of H cut many bus routes and busses take 20 minutes to come and are super pack)

9) 20 percent of the school is asian (I dont care about the race) but stick to thier own race
10) campus needs huge innovation everything looks old
11) too much construction surrounding the school
12) terrible parking takes me an hour to park anywhere
13) advisers have no ideal what they are doing
14) U of H grades on a wierd grading scale and if you repeat a course it will not replace original grade
