The weather is awful in Springfield, which is called the epicenter of weather in the US. It is 101 degrees in the summer, 2 degrees in the winter, and we can go from having tornadoes one day to a blizzard the next. Class is rarely cancelled and with no dorms or student housing, driving to campus is nearly impossible in ice storms or snow drifts. The best thing, though, is that it changes in nearly the blink of an eye. It will be 65 and sunny tomorrow!

The nursing program at Cox is completely unorganized. The instructors can't get their coordination together. Yes, there are a few amazing instructors but those are few and far between. You learn to really cherish them because everything else--the disorganization, the lack of communication, the lack of instruction--makes you so frustrated you start to wonder why you chose this school in the first place.

Our main campus is located in a very unsafe neighborhood, and since there is no "campus safety" to watch out over us, I can sometimes feel unsafe if I'm up near campus at night. I'm glad that I'm not usually there after dark!
