First let me say the business program sucks. On to the exercise science. I expected a bit of a challenge, but honestly you could learn 75% of the material taught just by reading a years worth of muscle and fitness magazine or any fitness and health related book. The only time you actually learn new stuff is EXS350 or EXS304. Unfortunately, those professors are so out of touch with reality, so absorbed in their research, and don't keep up with modern science unless it has to do with clinical work. All I can say is if the teacher has PhD next to their name it usually means they have the inability to teach and they are just smart. The best profs are the ones who aren't full time, who work in the field, and give you real life knowledge. The professor at this school are generally what is wrong with higher education today.

Campus life here is non-existant here unless you want to associate with the frats or sororities who are not the best of people. The cost of tuition gets raised every year and the graduation rate is low compared to other state schools. If you are just going here to stay home and save money, like me, I would not recommend going here. They charge and arm and a leg for textbooks here because most people don't compare, so always buy online. Don't get me started on teachers striking and not returning a small amount of my money. I could go on forever on why to not go here.

responseHow would you know about the business program and you aren't even in it. You suck for lying!
