He cares more about Educational Quality than the average student.
Date: Mar 20 2012
Major: Math (This Major's Salary over time)
I had higher expectations of this school when i started but after my second semester almost all of my TAs/Professors(especially in my math major) do not speak English very well and/or are too hard to understand that it becomes too hard to learn the coursework without completely teaching yourself. Because of this and a major gap between the book info in courses and what professors expect students to learn that if you are not a far above average student it is hard to get a good grade.

Aside from the math department I have had mainly good experiences with most of the TAs/Professors.

The final thing that has really hurt my appreciation of this school is that it is run too much like a business and not a place of education. They care more about making money, building a bigger campus/buildings, raising tuition and making senseless charges to students; rather than providing a quality education and support to the students. The majority of the counseling/advising staff offer little to no help.
