1 College Sophomore

Diversity: This place is Anti-Diversity period. You must be white, or from another country (also white), conservative to where you can quote a religious text like a parrot. For a place that claims to be progressive this is not the truth.

Academics: What Academics? Sports and gossip chatty Kathys are nothing to be proud of.

1 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm transferring. There is no point in working towards an A only to find out that a professor will never award someone an A no matter how hard they work! Fixing points, playing with grading curves is not professional. The students who get A's are the ones who earned them, not some stupid football player who won't do his homework.

Campus Quality: It's all about the sports and not about the jobs or careers that will shape the future of this country.

Local Area: If you want to live in a boring place with no real job opportunities then enjoy. Anyone who is serious about having a real career or running their own company won't waste time with a first look let alone a second look at this town.

Guys & Girls: The immaturity of other students is unbelievable. They don't seem to realize or care about what taking out a loan even means and just skipping class is what the cool kids do. If they are actually graded and failed (not like in the local high schools), they'll throw a hissy fit.

Health & Safety: A student I had two classed with was raped and she was treated like she deserved it. I'm leaving because of this and believe that if parents love their daughters they will keep them out of the religious, backwards, anti-woman SOUTH! The campus police don't care and the administrators just want to cover anything up that is remotely negative. Victims are blamed all the time and they'll lie claiming that students are safe. It's all talk and most of that talk is just flat out lying. They don't want people to realize what is going on. It's just a money making machine.

Overall Experience: It's all about marketing, not about reality. Students are being robbed and the community takes advantage of them.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They'll pressure you to not work and rely soley on student loans. They think nothing of telling a student that a 15% interest rate on a student loan is a "great deal". Do NOT believe them! Most racist scholarships don't offer much and grants are only for poor minorities. You'll have to do all the work yourself since you will deal with unprofessional counselors who don't want to do their job.

Greek Life: Not worth the hassle. They're run by snobby cliquey locals whose parents live through them. Just do you work, go to class and transfer to a much better college.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: They waste so much on bar bells, kettle bells and the latest fads but science lab supplies are old. The amount they spend on advertising is where I think half of my tuition went!

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Public transportation is spotty, time consuming, and unreliable. You MUST have a car here and bicycling is foolish. One person was already killed and most cyclists won't bother to wear a helmet and they ignore laws of the road. Housing in a roach infested old apartment is $600/month at least and utilities are high due to drought. A/C units break and the land lords will argue about repair costs.Make sure you take photographs and document everything! Break-ins and theft are very common since most thieves know which properties are rented out. The cops don't care and no matter where you live expect to be victimized by fraud, vandalism, car damage, assault, or discrimination. I was floored by how narrow minded people are here.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Disgusting unhealthy fast food. "Salads" are a joke and have wilted lettuce drowned in dressing. If you like health food just be aware they don't clean the yogurt dispensers and turnover is high at any place you go for food. Getting sick when eating out or dealing with credit card fraud is common.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: Drugs are present in class. Students goof off then take Adderall and Ritalin to study. This is what poor time management looks like and it's very common. Students go out and party, don't come in or are still drunk. The campus police do nothing even if there is evidence and they refuse to press charges or arrest people who commit crimes on campus. I will transfer and not waste more time on this lost cause of a university.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: They flat out lie about what they offer and then react like spoiled children when you call them out on it and complain. The community is complicit and just wants the money and cheap labor the students bring to the dying county. Their tax base is eroding and they now want to build a vocational building after they slashed more than two thirds of the programs in the past. They are doing things so backward and anyone with suggestions is attacked in public. These people are backwards and the university is not progressive at all.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: Majors aren't evenly represented at all. This school advertises a progressive and expanding curriculum that creates well balanced young adults when they leave some areas to languish and push athletics.

1 College Sophomore

Majors: There are no local internships. Internships have been advised against at the other two colleges I toured because it drives down wages. There have been lawsuits due to internship problems in professional industries where interns did work at the level of an expert but were not paid for it. Considering how many skills must be mastered before even graduating high school it's absurd to think that anyone here could "intern" (just work for free) at a restaurant or retail store. Those aren't even majors and no one wants to stay.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Being different or labelled as such is a death sentence. Students and faculty will be cruel and if you are a dumb kid who just goes with the flow of crazy on campus you're better off than a person who can think for themselves. My car was vandalized TWICE and police did NOTHING. Why? It was retaliation for stating the erosion of our founding father/s beliefs. The separation of church and state, while factual is actually hated here. Faculty tells students they had better "pray" they pass a test instead of study. It's unprofessional and creepy. You are supposed to learn, work outside of your comfort zone and explore different views while working with students from other areas. Most students are white or foreign. It's absurd since so many locals won't go here anymore. Most are extremely conservative and when they attack people in debate the faculty does nothing. Threatening to harm another student is not a problem here because they are all for the "religious right to oppress others". You will be harmed so keep you mouth shut. Other students have been beaten.

1 College Sophomore

Academics: I thought they had what they advertised which was an outright lie. Some educational institutions actually stand behind their students and know that the only way they look good is because they are there for them. Job placement, starting pay, and how far graduates have to travel for work are very telling. The fact that few people stay here is concerning but not surprising since the jobs and the community is terrible. It's just a money machine and I'm going to apply to transfer to two other universities, both of which are out of state. Texas is all hat and no cattle.

1 College Sophomore

Academics: Good luck getting to talk to the professor outside of class. Some will but most won't and will tell you to work with a TA if they have one. They have a very negative attitude toward dedicated students who take their work seriously and most seem jaded. There are a lot of politics one needs to be aware of and some locals want to dictate course syllabus. The absence of support from TA's to the (now retiring) joke of a president is why I'm not wasting anymore time here.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: They put far too much in MARKETING and don't deliver on the education end, which is far more relevant. They have Friday Night Lights Syndrome here and dumb athletes have their work done for them or they're just passed. Who cares about football? What about claiming that there are great STEM programs? That was a huge lie! The class size may be smaller but that's not for the basic classes at 150 students or more but instead just for specialty classes. This is false advertising. The only other school is Vernon College which can't seem to keep everything on schedule or keep instructors on. The companies here don't really hire from the university and I found a few other places just an hour or two away that are cheaper and have much higher rankings for ROI, starting salary, city stats, and community support.

1 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: If you don't put out then you won't get asked out. The boys like slutty girls period. Girls are lazy and aren't serious. The LGBT community is nonexistent because Christian bigots whine about not being able to practice the religious freedom of oppressing others with their narrow world view due to inexperience. You will be harassed every day about going to this church or that church. You will be treated poorly for having to work on weekends and on holidays. Women are judged for not having kids or for having kids and not being married or married to a different boy than the father. The religious aspect is never mentioned but some professors fail students for not going to - and DONATING money to their church. Hint: It's the most obscene church in town.

1 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Students joke about sexual assault and harass the victims. The young woman I had two classes with left out of fear for her safety and the campus police are a joke. They harass students working late even though you have to have a key card and codes for access, but call them to escort you and they gripe because you won't vote to carry a gun on campus or say you just need a flash light. Judges here do NOTHING and the paper only prints lies. Students have had cars broken into, vandalism is an issue, students are frequent victims of crime form locals, the local police/sheriff's department will not respond to complaints and say it "is the university's problem to deal with", meaning they don't want the high crime rate to be accurately reflected in stats.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Don't waste your time thinking about going here. It's a mess and no one seems to know what their job is and they're annoyed when you expect them to do their job. You are a counselor so counsel students. The administrators act as though you don't matter even though YOU pay their inflated salaries. You will not get what you are being robbed for. Just leave Wichita Falls and don't come back. My parents will not let my brother go here and I'm going to fight to get my money back. Call them on their con and they are horrific in behavior and infantile in their responses. No email response, won't answer the phone, refuse to address serious problems with sexism, religious bigots on campus harassing students, and more. Save yourself a lot of time, headache, money, and stress. Better yet just don't come to Texas if you can help it.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For what you get after paying tuition and frivolous fees you should expect and GET a lot more. TA's and professors aren't around. Professors will fail students they don't like no matter what. Appealing a grade even after a teacher calls you a "terrorist" will not work. Why? You can't talk to the people who are supposed to make sure racism and discrimination doesn't happen. What you pay goes toward pointless sports and promoting a university that consistently fails to deliver. They want to expand and build more to keep up with other colleges and universities that promise a lot but don't deliver. The ROI rank on this university is a joke and if you ask around other students aren't looking to graduate - they just want to transfer. However there are cheaper alternatives which is why I've dropped out and am looking to get my tuition back. This is theft of opportunity. Don't tell me you have the best and then hire thieves and a racist black preacher!
