Before attending this University, make sure you're well prepared with your knowledge of sources around the campus, or else you will get off to a bad academic start; the population is too high, the school is kind of big (but not the biggest), and the faculty and staff may be too preoccupied to the point where they can't help you out 100% whenever you need it.

I don't know about other departments, but majoring in the Humanities Department is telling you to prepare to do a lot of writing. When I transferred to this University, they were lagging and taking forever for my transcripts to process; so that I know which classes I need and which ones I don't for my major. After the my first semester ended, I've found out i wasted my time on a particular class I thought I needed, but really didn't according to my major plan. In addition to that, I realized I needed to take the WST in order to get into the Advance GE courses/100W, I didn't pass the WST the first time, and then I found out that I needed 1B in order to take it, which I haven't taken at the time.

This school can be very uninforming and just because of the lack of effort for the staff and faculty to make sure you're on top of your educational goals, it sets you back, very very back, if you're willing to graduate in a timely manner. Other than that, this school has it's ups and downs, things could have been better and things could have been worse.
