I had a mixed experience at the school, both good and bad and I managed to tough it out.

The Pluses:

  • shuttle service around campus so I would not get ran over by careless students.
  • advocacy from DSS
  • Some good professors
  • the campus was nice and so is the basketball arena
  • snacks during finals week
  • a few professors that understood my disability
  • Many different venues around campus, such as the theater, the concert hall, the Pyramid, Japanese Gardens, etc.
  • The city has a lot of things for people to do
  • Good advisers that can help me decide what class/professor I should have
  • The Minuses:

  • Some of the people do not speak very good English, so it is hard to ask, for example, when applying or all over campus.
  • Too many people and not enough classes
  • People who study on the weekends
  • People just being flat out rude
  • Some professors are very insensitive
  • Studying in the library becomes an inapporpriate chit-chat session
  • The parking
  • A lack of supervision when the k-12 schools visit here
  • Trying to get into the university and be given a run around
  • Overall, I would give the school a 6.5 out of 10 and there are some things that need to improve to better the quality for me and other students.

    responseIt's a stupid school. They take anyone. I'm not proud at all because it's no Yale. The teachers here ought to go visit Yale, and then we'll see who the smartest is.
    responseThe venues are more geared for dumb people with no culture. I don't think fancy people would be happy here. This is more of a blue collar school.
