I had a horrible experience with classes at Lyco! I ended up with only 3 classes each semester instead of the regular 4. I was put into a high level Spanish class that I didn't think I should be in, I was concerned along with my parents, but lyco pushed me into the class which I had to withdraw from. The next semester I fell through the system and ended up in a class I wasn't able to get credit for, which the school blatantly blamed on me. The system failed, ultimately leading me to be able to sign up for the class. Resulting in my withdrawal from yet another class.

The registration process obviously is horrible.

I've wasted time at Lycoming now because of these setbacks, also wasting my time and money.

Use rate my professor and take it to heart. Some professors suck at their jobs, others are newer and do decently at their jobs. If the professor is horrible on day one then get out while you can. They all are different depending on their personalities; some are laid back and easy, others are hard and strict, and the rest should just quit because they can't teach.

There are more good aspects of campus housing than not good housing aspects. In most dorms, you get along with your floor mates very well. After freshman year, co-ed floor arrangements are normal, as it helps build more relationships as you continue through your education. Garbage rooms can become extremely messy, but this should be expected due to the number of people that all use a garbage room. Laundry cards are distributed each year for residence to do laundry; though, supplies are not included. I do not wish to make you believe that cleanliness is an issue, there is always going to be something here or there, that's the nature of residential living with that many people together. But, bathrooms are cleaned weekly and everyone gives an effort to make sure campus does not look any less than marvelous.
