Despite the negative comments against Univ. of Phoenix, I had quite a positive learning experience there-I am not being paid to say this either. The same negative statements said against Univ. of Phoenix have been said for just about any other regionally and AACSB or ACBSP accredited college or university, even worse in some cases and that includes top tier with their major focus on generating endowments, return on investments and other revenue generating endeavors. I find that, like against other schools, the root beind these negative statements come from disgruntled individuals who failed to some degree in their academic pursuits and instead of holding themselves accountable, they blame the school. Univ. of Phoenix like any other regionally and pragmatically accredited university is bound by accreditation standards to maintain a marked level of academic delivery and excellence. Yet the school cannot be held responsible for the student's lack of motivation and ability to maintain an acceptable level of academic performance. On a positive note, I noticed that Univ. of Phoenix has become more active in alumni activties giving its graduates a since of still belonging; greater emphasis on extracarricular activities like other so-called traditional school and a culture that attempts to give the student a since of ownership and pride in their university. In my opinion, Univ. of Phoenix continues to grow and evolve into a well respected university. It is what it is!
responseYou're right—it is what it is—a terrible community college under the guise of a 'university'. By the way, saying "I am not being paid to say this" makes it comically obvious you are.
