Alverno College - Comments and Student Experiences|
Another thing is that this college is very money hungry even after you graduate. They will constantly send you mail asking a donation of $200 and up to help out with all these new stuff for the students. To be honest, they wasted a lot of the money on decorating the freaking campus than spending it on technology, art, science,etc. they only updated certain area of the campus (#cough# nursing ) They could save a lot of money having perennials flowers than buying annual flowers. They kept saying they are the cheapest private school in the US. If so, STOP INCREASING institution!!! People,if you plan to get a house but have a huge ass debt from this college. Just forget about it. All they will do is kept asking more money even after your done. The job you will have, it will not cover your daily expense. You will be paying your loan for a long time, like me.....
The good thing about this college after I switch my major to Biology, the teachers will make time to meet with you and explain to you about the different subjects, and they will tutor you. The biology professors understand the subjects and they tried their best to related to real life jobs. The business office understand about the money struggles you have, and they will help out with another scholarship or put you on a payment which you can afford, they also extend the payment plans. The internship office will try to help you find interns that pay or have scholarships that paid you while your on it. classes are small and they are a lot of group discussions and subjects. They teach you how to deal with people whom you strongly dislike in a nice mean way(trust me.....i rather work alone or work with guys than girls.) The library have electronic resources to do your research project, if not they are connected to other colleges to get the materials you need and they even paid for the research articles that will forever be in Alverno data space. they have classes for you to prepare for the advance college (to be honesty, most graduated college don't care as long you have the money)...... this college is not bad place to go to but be warn. they are money hungry and nursing students are sobs. if they stop increasing the amount of intuition, it might be okay school. however, would i come here again....NO!
con's: some biology professors are bitches. they treat you like everything you do, you are stupid, and they bully students as well!! (but students are so afraid to tell anyone because if you snitch on one professor, you've put a target on your back and the entire department hates you)
once you're in, you can never get out. they do anything and everything in their power to keep you in their school- these people are so money hungry!
tuition is up the ass and all of technology is so outdated! they spend tons of money making the school look "pretty" when they should be spending it on better things like technology-- which we pay so much $$ for. we only have one main computer lab that's always available-- which only consists of about 30-40 computers.
fitness center is so small, when it's packed you can never get a good workout in-- and the school is about being "healthy".
athletes: the athletics department is also corrupt- the director was sleeping with an athlete before she graduated-- oh and now he's marrying her! they totally favor their athletes here over everyone else!
if you want to persue higher education after your undergrad, they make things extremely hard to get your grades! or if you want to see them in general- which i don't understand why it's so complicated when they're your grades and you paid your tuition!
there's no such thing as graduating with honors if you have straight a's-- they only way you can graduate with honros is if you're extremely involved and litterally is the school's "bitch", other than that your straight a's grade equivalency does not matter!don't go to school here unless you're a nursing or educdation major and you're never gonna change majors!!!! every other major here sucks! and you won't find a job b/c of the stupid grading system!
