of all, let me say that I was at this
site reading these exact reviews in one of my high
school classes a long time ago. It's been three
a bit years since then and I really wish I
would have taken the negative aspects more seriously. Thus,
I am paying the consequences for that now. Needless
to say, if you're reading these reviews with a serious
consideration of going to this school, please be mindful of
what I have to say.
This University is a system.
It's a system designed to provide you with a
service given that you pay them money for it.
I'm a business student and in the top 7% of
my class at the moment, but I'm really quite disappointed
with the level of academia this school holds as a
standard. A lot of the classes I've been taking are
easier than stuff I did in high school. It's
really sad to see that despite the lack of difficulty
in a lot of the classes, the professors still give
a lot of students breaks for doing bad in their
class. You may think this is a good thing,
but when you consider the fact that you're paying almost
$20,000 a year to come to this school, you want
that degree to have some teeth when you're out applying
for jobs. No one wants a degree from a
school that hands them out like candy.
The social aspects
of this school are highly political. Fraternities and sororities
rule the campus, so if you're not into the Greek
thing you might as well expect a damper in your
social life. The official leisure activity is getting drunk.
That's it. If you hear of a party,
a social gathering, or anything resembling the sort, expect alcohol.
That's as creative as these Greek organizations get when
it comes to doing things.
There are some
friendly people around campus that you will find, but the
more you encounter some of the people in your classes,
you'll find that it's a very superficial type of friendly.
It's the “friendly” that resembles cliques and immaturity that
you'd find in high school, where you will be outcasted
unless you can relate to them with things they have
in common: mainly, how they didn't study for the tests
or got drunk at parties.
The women are attractive, but
a lot of them are snooty and washed blondes.
A lot of them are rich. Some of the
guys around campus are the same way.
The school in
general does not know how to operate correctly. They
make it a pain for you to get through with
payments (and all the little scammed fees they through in),
and then you find out they waste their money on
things like a swimming pool or a sidewalk that's five
feet from another sidewalk. It's pretty disgusting how they
budget and spend income like it's unlimited. It really
infuriated me, considering I actually have to take out loans
to come here. College is really expensive, and when
they spend money and charge for stupid things, you wonder
why it's that way.
Housing is terrible. There is
absolutely no room mate selection criteria anymore since they changed
it to where you pick your specific room. If
you don't like your room mate, you're pretty much out
of luck as they give you attitude if you want
to change your room. Dining services is even worse.
The food is horrible (it may seem cool at
first, trust me... you will change your mind) and incredibly
EXPENSIVE. You have to pay extra fees for the
maintenance and funding of the actual dining facilities in addition
to paying premium for the food. The staff only
does what takes the least effort. Really, they don't
care. They have the money they're going to get
from you so there's no incentive to do things better
or even right.
I'll just skip the other details and
get to the bottom line. If you want the
crazy drunken social experiences, go right ahead and come here.
If you want to value your education, savor moments
from college that may not involve hangovers, and find accomplishment
and fulfillment with your degree plan, then do NOT come
here. Don't make the mistake of finding this out
for yourself and ignoring these aspects like I did.
If you think this may bother you, it most likely
