been going to TWU for five years, and it's not
because I couldn't get it done— No, they keep postponing
my graduation date due to administration technicalities. Now, they want
to charge me out-of-state tuition for having too many credit
hours: most of which I obtained in high school through
ALL of the core curriculum was busywork,
and trying to 'think outside the box' or having any
kind of opinion different than the instructors' was a guaranteed
lower grade. Most of my classes went as follows: Get
homework, go to class, discuss homework in class, lecture from
the book using a powerpoint that says exactly what's in
the book, take open-book test- Have questions? The answer can
be found in the book, and no, I won't discuss
They've got great extra curricular activities to choose
from, and most of the students are really friendly and
helpful- but right now there's a level of discontent going
around campus about shoddy administration and lack of communication. Our
Chancellor makes about $25 more per student than those of
other, more prestigious, much larger universities... which just happens to
be more than the U.S. president.
The school is
having major budget cuts- being $4mill below budget will do
that. But instead of taking a salary cut from the
top, our university is firing tenured professors.
Have I mentioned
that the local community colleges charge much less per credit
hour, have a much larger selection of degree plans and
course selections, and have about the same experienced leveled instructors
heading the classrooms?
Overall assessment: GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. TWU JUST WANTS YOUR MONEY; THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS.
