This school kicked my ass nine ways from Sunday with no remorse. My dorm is falling apart, some others are nicer though. Faculty are (for the most part) great, but the workload here is insane and sadistic. If you're gonna come here, you'd better have some experience with every core requirement class you have to take, because most are taught like you already know what you're doing (at first).

Some of the administration is cool, but lately the've been riding our asses. Two of my friends found out that they are one credit (1/3 of a class) short and will not graduate with me in a few days. One found out over spring break, one found out 2 days ago. The registrar just missed the fact that they were off-track to graduate and so they got screwed- the school is not helping them at all to my knowledge.

That being said there are ways to have a good time here. I didn't transfer because of the people. Often i think i should have.
