I've had some really good professors, with a few disgruntled unhappy ones as well. The budget cuts and tuition hikes 1-2 times a semester have created an ominous, dark cloud over the campus. People try to pretend everything is OK, but overall the school has a "Titanic" feel to it and consequently, students are just trying to get through as fast as possible. Dealing with administration issues is usually tense, and the student is often viewed with contempt. There is a charge for everything, sometimes twice for the same thing…like "applying for graduation" over a year ahead, and then another charge if the classes are unavailable and you need to change your graduation date. Students are treated like high school students. Ancillary services like career counseling are very hit and miss, with arrogant students manning the reception desk there attempt to dissuade students from seeking help on this front or seeing an adult career counselor…very much an "I'm in, you're out!" attitude.
The system is broken and will most likely worsen. I had a much better experience in the Community College arena
