Again, we have to look at the faculty, and the driving initiative. Is it stockholders, or is it students? Given the archane grounds, the lack of upkeep, (when I propose we yank the dilapidated furnishings), with something ultimately robust. My thoughts begin to think the curriculum is less about its students, and more about gross revenue lining the peripheral red tape that is needed to keep any buisiness, commodoty regarded as 'a person', some grandized rights, lower folk never get. At least, in abundance, which is seemingly justified by the state of decline that is 'air apparent'. Thanks!

Kindest Regards,

My general education course work was good. The core courses for my major were often frustrating and stressful. The professor who taught many of the required courses for my major had very high expectations and was generally unresponsive and not easy to deal with. This person required text books that were not even mentioned or referenced during quarter/semester. Truly, if I had known about this particular professor before I had applied to CSCC, I would have decided against coming to CSCC altogether.

In my experience, it seems that a number of the instructors at CSCC do not have a true grasp of the &quot;real&quot; work environment. I took a communications course, and the professor taught that an effective memo/email takes approximately 6-8 hours to write! As a working adult student, I know first-hand the absurdity of that statement--yet it was presented as fact. And my comment about that and other similar statements were not well received.

Progress Shows Outside of Class – I am extremely pleased with the structure of Columbus State Community College's degree programs and its close relationship to four-year edcational centers. Instead of traditional 2+2 transfers, three years are at the low-rates and friendly hours, especially for parents and working individuals. Being in sales, business management classes have enhaced my knowledge, skills, and overall performance every day. People skills and customer service expanded with the help of only a few classes! I learned how to handle situations intelligently avoiding negative confrontation.
