I consider myself a professional student. If I invest money in something I expect to get what I paid for. Many times I had to re-approach the topic of the lesson because the instructors don't have a clear lesson plan. If they do have a lesson plan, they don't adhere to it. I as a student, I shouldn't have to correct troublesome students in the class. I have found many teachers not apply themselves to teach properly. As if they are getting a free paycheck and it doesn't matter if you grasp it or not. When spurred properly to earn their paycheck, the teachers are much better.

It's a good school the only problems is the lack of classes offered for my major and the bad financial aid services but other than that faculty actually currently work in the field and offer real world experience. Also the classes are reasonably sized and you never feel like you're lost in a crowd.

Housing is terrible, not having a meal plan is kind of the worst, there's mold and mice and matinence never comes when there's a problem, tuition is out of this world, many of the teachers feel as if they are too good to teach here, and many students don't realize that the work you put in is the work you get out. However, I've made some of my best friends here, and met some amazing people that really have pushed me towards greatness. I would not go back and change my expirence here if I had the chance.
