3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms feel like jail cells, some of the walls have big holes in them and it takes up to a week for someone to fix an issue in your room. The dorms are very expensive and there is only one on campus. The dorms do not cater to the needs of its athletes. Inside the dormitories the head supervisor demands respect and if you do not give it to him he will find a way to get you in trouble. There is only one way to get into the dorms, and you are not allowed to bring people who do not live in the dorms with you unless you sign them in. If you sign them in and they do not leave before their time allowed is over, the head of the dorms will come to your room and make the person leave and ban them regardless of what is going on.

Athletics: I am a student athlete, it is a second year program. We have only 2 athletic trainers for the entire athletic department. Many of the teams have losing records and none are very successful. Rarely any fans come and support the sports team. The track and soccer team have to play on off campus sites because there is not a soccer field and the track is not regulation size. The soccer team has to practice in the outfield of the baseball field, sometimes during baseball's practice time. The athletic advisors show no support for the sports teams unless the coaches are donating money to the school annually. The athletic advisors also have no faith in the teams, and rarely acknowledge the fact that they are on campus. Our weight room and training room are in the same room in the building and there isn't enough room to go around for everyone. The soccer and baseball teams are forced to split into groups when they workout based on the fact that there aren't enough weights or machines for the teams to use as a whole. The locker rooms are not up to par. The basketball teams have luxury locker rooms, while baseball and soccer have to give theirs away during basketball season and are not allowed in there and cannot keep any personal belongings inside. The baseball and soccer teams barely have enough room in their locker rooms for all of the players to fit comfortably. Some players have to put their lockers in the hallways due to lack of space.

Overall Experience: The schools location is not the best, the administrators are very unorganized and do not know about their field of expertise. The academic advisors do not know about their assigned majors and advise students to take the wrong courses and only blame the students and not themselves for the mistake.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe that I was advised wrong by choosing the classes I had when I first came to Chicago State.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety is sometimes alright. At night it isn't no security.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Do not live on campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I really don't pay any attention pertaining to greek people in the school.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is my second semester here, and It has been terrible.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I don't know anyone at school that are on drugs.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: They do not do much around campus. My daughter went away to college and the Greek life was in full view.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are quite a few robberies near campus.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors let the class teach each other. Professors get away with talking to students any type of way. Going to higher ups is usually a waste of time.

A couple of courses were hard because of the professors. One course I was in started off with 20 students and ended with 4 students. No one understood the professor, and when you asked her a question, she got confused. Most of us dropped, others took a chance and ended up with low grades.

The professors in a couple of courses I had hated for students to ask questions or asked them to explain in more depth.

Another professor called us dumb.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had problems with teachers in the Health Sciences program and nothing is ever done. I have gone to the Dean of Students, Dean of the Department, and the Dean of the School. Nothing. Teachers are allowed to get away with things and nothing is done. The student is always the victim.
