Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
You have to understand that depending on your area of study that your experience may vary. This is meant to be a science/engineering school, but I'm okay with the art department. The problems are that the new president and board of trustees don't care about students anymore. Between last semester and this one parking violation tickets went up from $10 to $50, and the school hides the rules on a webpage that has nothing to do with parking, so you can't tell what inane rules you have to follow. For the most part, you will pay the usual thousand dollars for each class and the teachers will act nice, they will tell you that you don't have to play the "what does my teacher want to see game", yet they expect you to write a paper or draw a picture, etc to their liking, so it's a lie. The school has its good points but the fact that teachers can get away with almost anything they want (aside from shooting people), and that everything is being designed to suck more money out of your pocket, makes this campus about worthless anymore. This school has become less about education and more about economics, parking permit fees were raised at the beginning of this semester to pay for resurfacing parking lots, and putting up new lights, I've yet to see that happen. I'm just saying that less of their services really help students learn, and more money seems to just disappear, I know no one wants to throw the word embezzlement into the issue but unless the new president is just incompetent, I can't see how that money just vanishes.
