I feel as though that Cheyney university has great professers who really care about you graduating and moving on to grad school. I just feel as though the administration is not organized and has held many students up from getting their degree. For an example I was allowed to participate in graduation and take my 6 credits in the summer courses and be done waiting for my degree in the mail. I waited until December of 2013. They told me I had a balance that needed to paid. I went to pay the balance about 4 months later because I had to save the money up because it was over a 1,000. After I paid the balance I waited again for my degree for another 2 months for the register office to tell me it was an over site with one of my courses and I had to take the course over because I had a D in the courseLol. I tried to get financial aid but my loans were in default and I couldn't get a loan. So now its 2016 and I still don't have my degree. I feel as though it was a bit unprofessional on the administration part. As far as the teachers go they really care, in fact my professor told me about this scholarship so all I can do now is pray on it and hope for the best.

Most of the professors were good because they listen to the students and understand the struggle students have been going through sometimes and they try to make time to meet students in terms of difficulties. Professors were able to handle the class and make sure everyone understood what have been covered and try to make students participate in class as well

critical thinking professor Schoenberg was a good teacher gave participations points and always available to help.

Economics 2: Dr Asuzu very great make classes fun and he gives good notes. I think he had 60 people in the class.

Health and Wellness, Professor Newton had good examples on how to control your life and socialized with everyone in class she also had like 60 students in class.

I do not really know how others think about it but to me I think it is bad because people do not really support the team the way it should be supported that is very bad because they always say they are going to lose so they are not going to waste time on that but actually the team needs to get better because ever since I got to Cheyney they lose more than they win, I may be wrong but that is how I feel. Factors that affect the athletics scene is that I think the good ones do not get the chance to exhibit their talent and also players train whenever they want to and there must be discipline.
