This school is in a bad financial situation, which is not unusual for this institution. They are making up for financial short-comings by eliminating positions, cutting pay and overloading the faculty that they do retain. This is having a very negative impact on student experiences.

As stated elsewhere, the school tends to put its own shortcomings in the light of the "self-directed" nature of the school, effectively blaming any student who has a negative experience for their own frustrations with the school. This in addition to the school's misrepresentation of what is available and to be expected by new students.
The school also has the slowest internet connection in town! Not good.
They are now asking students and staff to recruit new students, as they need the money these students would bring in, but me and many others will have a hard time selling anyone on the idea of attending college here, based on personal negative experiences
