She cares more about Friendliness than the average student.

Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
Everything I was told about this university proved itsself to be the exact opposite.

Only two teachers I found to be cool or supportive of creativity in art students. Everywhere I went, on campus and off I would get harassed and even in class (the other student made a death threat and the school did nothing whatsoever).

What makes this school terrible though is how underfunded and lousy every department is. They slash budgets, eliminate programs but still find the money to repave with cobble stone and put in with offensive mission style signs for the school. The prioties of the administration are skewed and students are last on that list.

The Teachers are generally rude, lazy/sloppy and apathetic while their departments are completed unorganized and you'll find yourself endlessly frustrated by how each of your teachers from the same department will contradict eachother when you try to introduce ideas from one to the next. IT seems they are either fighting each other or just haven't had any discussions for any sort of cohesion between eachother's classes whatsoever.

They are supposed to be progressive but their student store uses sweatshop produced materials and their cafeteria serves deep-fried greasy garbage that will put pounds on you and is anything but healthy.

The Humboldt county environment is supposed to be openminded, friendly, easygoing, but in reality the people espouse the attitude of p.c. thugs, or liberal fascists, they are far too extreme. The locals hate everyone who isn't "one of them" and will rob you blind \i've never been ripped off more times in my entire life than living there in one year).

This school will not prepare you for life outside of HUmboldt county and everyone i've known who has graduated does not have a success story. It's best to go to the only community college there or find any other cal state to attend. Unless you are a braindead hick and/or stoner you don't belong here.
