The department of design and technical theatre at Western Michigan University needs and overhaul. Oversights are failing left and right leaving students the inadequate advising they need for their design assignments and rewarding students who continually fail to meet what should be average expectations. Design assignments are first and foremost dolled out to bolster the faculty's own portfolios and student needs are a secondary after-thought. There are a few exceptions. Matt Knewtson does try to do best by his students first and teaches excellent classes. Greg Roehrick, the department head, has classes but what he does in them could not be described as teaching. He throws a project at you and expects you to figure it out yourself. Those who have painting skills before the painting projects will be the same level of ability they were at before the project. Those without painting skills will find painting to be a frustrating and worthless experience. Same goes for drafting.
