PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT COME TO THIS DEPARTMENT! IT IS SO MESSED UP!!! First, when I say the faculty is condescending and unhelpful, I'm talking mainly about the administration. Most of the faculty is decent enough and Anita Schaak is the saving grace of the whole damn place- she is actually a great teacher and the only reason I'm still there. June McCullough is pretty decent too. Other than that, people make you feel like you are dirt or just have lukewarm sentiments toward you and don't help you enjoy learning or the profession. Anyways, the office personnel treats you like shit- it's only one woman and she gives you the meanest looks and obviously doesn't want to give you her time even though that's why she's there. Oh also, she leaves the office randomly and locks it so when you want to go in for important files and such (which is often) you can't. Theres way too much drama there and students have no control or say in anything. Information is not distributed well to students (you would think they could e-mail everyone once in awhile but they don't) so we are often left scrambling asking each other when VERY important applications or meetings are being held. The students basically rely on each other so thank god I have some support. Clinics are disorganized and not equal at all and you can't sign up for classes until like the day they start practically. Oh also, the department is super unethical. I could go on but theres way too much to say. I know several students who were accused of a variety of things they didn't do and the asshole students who DID do them (plagiarize, lie, cheat, steal) got off the hook simply because there was no "evidence" even though everyone knows who did a lot of it. This department is disgusting and I wish I had done more research before I came. I hope I can help some people…
