He cares more about Education Quality than the average student.
Date: Dec 31 1969
Major: School of Information (This Major's Salary over time)
More time spent on bureaucratic obligations than on actual schoolwork. Taking mostly online courses exacerbates matters: students are left to fend for themselves with no student handbooks, guidelines for the program, no deadlines given for important matters (course registration, thesis, graduation). The only reminders we receive: tuition payment due dates & sales at the bookstore. Their website is horrible. Important information is buried, or suddently appears when it is too late. Policies change in mid-semester, professors and advisors give conflicting information, students are forced to purchase $100+ portfolio software as graduation requirement, only to be told a few weeks later: not needed. And professors: it's a game of Russian roulette. Some very bright, demanding ones who can push you to your brain's limits. Others should be teaching grade school; they never prepare you for the few real classes in which you will find yourself. Do yourself a favor: stay out of SCSU as a graduate student. You're better off going broke at a school that really cares about your education, not your wallet.
