They waste money on frivolous things while allowing the classrooms and buildings to fall apart and cutting corners on funding for academics. The athletic programs are probably the biggest waste of money. Most of the instructors who make a career at ASU are about as lively and helpful as rocks, and there are never enough instructors or classrooms. Some people are nearly crucified for minor infractions while others are allowed to do as they please. The financial aid office is understaffed, and the few workers they do have are completely incompetent. Forms are lost, information is entered incorrectly… The courses are about as challenging as kindergarten. I've kept my GPA near a 4.0 with little effort. Don't expect much competition. Most students just take their C's and go on their merry way. The campus bookstore is a joke. You'll pay much more for your text, and it probably will NOT be the correct one. For this irritation, you'll stand in line for about 2 hours to buy them - another 2 hour to exchange them for the correct one. Parking is a nightmare and expensive. The campus cops are more interested in handing out parking fines than preventing any real crime, of which there IS plenty. Bottom line - there are much better universities for about the same cost or a little more. Go ANYWHERE but Arkansas State University.
questionI don't mean to seem intrusive and if I am, of course you have the natural liberation to not even respond to this message. And I must consent to the fact that your comments on ASU are fairly accurate. Especially, the ASU bookstore and the constant unprofitable funding toward things that are not substantive, in any fashion or form, toward the academic standing of the university. I believe that we're in the same graduating class. But anyway, what department are you under?
