Major: Computer Science (This Major's Salary over time)
Don't let the "Saint" part fool you. They are not Catholic or even sort-of-Catholic. They don't have a chapel but an "Inter-Faith Sanctuary" and the only holy book you can't find in there is a Bible. The prominant art exhibit at the time that I went for the campus tour was several poster size prints of a naked woman in various sorts of bondage with bruises on her body and such. On closer inspection I realized that the girl in the pictures was our tour guide. So I decided aginst an art major and went for computers instead. The computer program (Computer Information Systems) was not terribly robust. I am in web design now - which I taught myself. My husband, who also went to Saint Rose, is in Sysytems Administration - which he taught himself. We just went there to get the silly piece of paper which says BS on it. I did well enough, and the faculty was very nice. Much more attention was paid to the education or communication disorders departments than the other programs. They position themselves as a commuter friendly school and in the beginning they were. But that was changing as I left. Their liberal arts requirements were being made much more rigid. I was invited to participate in a focus group regarding the new requirements. I tried to explain how commuters would find it difficult to fulfill some of the new reqirements being proposed since, for example, natural sciences courses were only offered at certain times, but the dean (of what?) made it perfectly clear that she wasn't listening. My guess is that on campus students spend more money. I also added that requiring all students to take an intro to computer course would make it more difficult for computer majors to use the labs for projects and would be a royal waste of time for most people who already knew what a mouse was for. Nobody seemed to care about that either. Some of the physical education requirements are a bit silly. Not the classes or the two credits themselves, but this silly packet we had to complete as part of total wellness education. I did some of it and protested the rest. I spoke to the head of the department and told her what I did and didn't do and I don't think it affected my grade. I pretty much went to class and went home so I know nothing about campus life. There's a bit of a parking problem. Technically since they're in the city of Albany, there's parking anywhere, but finding something within two blocks is a bit of a challenge.
