The only thing that upsets me about my school is the administration. They are unsure of themselves, they lack student rapport, they appear to be greedy in an already for-profit program, and student admission numbers seem to take priority over well qualified students. They seem to take anyone without question. It's very sad!

On ground instructors are mostly great and I've learned a lot, but from an administrative stand point, this school is a joke. Online classes are far too easy and offer no intellectual stimulation. Admissions will lie to you to get you to apply, financial aid is so disorganized that they'll most definitely screw you over, and good luck getting any resolution if you have issues. They know they suck, they know the students are dissatisfied, but they don't care.

My school offers so many clubs, programs, extra help, academic and financial advising that go to a great detail that would help make the student/parent understand, has unique ways of teaching the class that forces one to open their minds and think outside the box more often, and allows students to give feedback to other students and even their teachers.

The one thing I wish they could be more on top of is having more hours for their student store because more often the student store closes early or doesn't open at all than it being open. More help with financial aid and receiving equipment that is needed for future courses, but I think that may be on financial aid itself rather than the school. Lastly, to get more organized with not only office hours, but student documents. It hasn't happened with me, but I've heard from my fellow classmates that their tuition isn't payed for that term, that they are not able to get their equipment on time, etc.

Although with having some negative feedback, the school itself is amazing. You can improve and push yourself without you feeling like you're passing your comfort zone which soon becomes second nature to a student. You have so much technical support, tutoring support, great study groups, one on one time with the teachers, not too big of a classroom, fun and interactive activities where students of different majors and ages can come together and have fun with one another, and unique ways to display artworks and give students a chance to calm down from stress.
