Major: Public Health (This Major's Salary over time)
To start out, I went to College of the Ozarks for a little over a year. I thought that I would do really well there because I am a very hard worker. However, when I was there working, people slacked off all the time. The first job that I got there was working at Edwards Mill. However, two weeks later I was transferred to the Keeter Center because the Dean of Work had made a mistake when arranging jobs for everyone. At the Keeter Center, the supervisors were awful. One man, who was a chef at the time, sexually harassed a young woman. Fortunately, I got transferred to a different work station. One thing that doesn’t make sense is how some of the supervisors can slack off, but they give students a grade based on their work performance.
The classes there are mixed, and what I mean by that is that there are great to crappie teachers that work there. The resources compared to other colleges are out dated. The library needs to be completely up-dated. During my time at the college I never once saw a brand new book in the library. To me the English and the Math departments seemed to be the stronger departments of the school.
The Living conditions there are not very good. Some of the women’s dorms are way too small--especially for two people to live in. The air conditioning units are awful. There is mold growing in them and wasp sometimes fly out of them in the summertime. I would also see small green centipedes crawling around on the floor.
My social life there wasn’t very great because I was working, going to class, or studying all the time. There was not a whole lot of down time there compared to the school that I am going to now. The students who go there get pushed to the edge in the since that they don’t get very many breaks, the food isn’t very great, and they don’t have a very good living condition.
The administration there is not very good. I had a harassment issue with someone, and ended up going to the Dean of Work, Dr. Dawe. He told me I wasn’t using the term "harassment" right, and that he didn’t want to get involved in the story, and that "there are two sides to every story." He later told me that he wouldn’t penalize me that time for coming in. I have never been spoken down to like that before.
This school is very political and would not recommend it to any one. Even if you are the poorest kid on the earth, don’t go to this school. I would rather be in debt, than go back to this corrupt school.
