This school, for the most part, is abysmal. The staff (in every department I've been in) are rude, belittling, and have absolutely no desire to help students at all. The card center is ran by a bunch of snobby college students, the financial aid department is nothing but old ladies who clearly look miserable while being there, and the advisers are little to no help at all either. I hate this school, and I wish I transferred somewhere else. The students are by no means friendly - starting a conversation is pretty much impossible since no one is open to making new friends.

Not to mention, I found my transfer credits to be absolutely useless; I transferred from a community college with an AS, and hardly any of the classes actually transferred! Are you kidding? I just spent two years at a community college only to find out that I will be here until 2019 (possibly longer, and spending more money) on a tremendous load of throwaway, useless classes that barely pertain to my major.

This university is dated, dirty, horrible, the food is absolute garbage, the students are rude, the staff/faculty are almost all rude, arrogant, and act like they're in a top-tier college. I hate this school, and I wish I transferred somewhere else. But oh well, too late now!
