The program is very competitive and with one failed class you are dismissed from the class. The workload is heavy, at times ridiculously heavy. Too much time spent on busy work and not enough time spent on constructive items to excel/study. The facilities should be improved, it would be convenient if all of the classes were held at one location instead of two different campuses. Sometimes this contributes to multiple trips and excessive/unnecessary driving.

My education is valuable and cannot be taken away from me unlike some tang tangible item. I suggest while visiting the financial aid office don't stop with the first person that you speak to but, ask another employee your question to confirm the answer that you received prior is correct. I look at it as if you are their boss and you need to follow up to ensure that they did their job because if they don't, it will cause problems while you are in class, when you really don't need extra worries.

The student body is diverse. Being a primarily black school there are different ethnic groups, not only black and white but Asian and indian. Another diversity is the age groups ranging from eighteen to mid 40's and older.
