Academically the school offers a lot in very specific fields and overall a good experience. Most professors are friendly and very helpful. Where the true problem is the Student Dean, Leadership and the administration staff. Unfortunately I got a sense that the arrogance and irrationality in the upper levels of the administration staff created frustration and discontent among the professors which I completely understand. Some of the professors here are great and can do much better than working under the thumb of administration.

There are many "required" programs that the administration forces you to be involved in and ultimately a big waste of your time. I recommend if you are looking for a solid academic experience and a REAL academic environment go to a real college. There are too many distractions here. You can't even go to the campus library and study appropriately here because people are talking on their phones, talking about their weekends and playing grab ass in the middle of the library. A large portion of the students here are very disrespectful. It is not good environment for those who are looking for academia.
