Improvements can and will be made but in the mean time I will appreciate Wiley for EVERYTHING it has done for me. This is considered a second-chance school for me. I turned it down right after college but after a big university had too many students (30-200 Students per class) and too many distractions for me I sought out Wiley in which the teachers are very one-on-one knowing your name and face if you were to miss a class oppose to being a number who clocks in by ID but doesn't go unnoticed for missing class. Now the "turn up" is not real but you come to school for an education not parties. I came from almost failing out of school to making the President's List for a 4.0 GPA and this is all attributed to the structure of my school. Thanks Wiley, I love you!

Academically Wiley College is the ultimate place to be. EVERY professor is more than willing to work with each and every student. There is never a student left behind. Wiley College has recently opened the Haywood L. Strickland living learning center and are in the process of rebuilding our student union. Wiley College is the FIRST HBCU (historically black colleges and universities) west of the Mississippi. This prestigious institution provides every student with a n opportunity to be involved on campus and throughout the community. Wiley College is the place to be!

Being a Computer Information System major is great, having in mind that our world is all about technology now, imagine the future. Like I mentioned before, some teachers do not really have the enthusiasm to pass their students their knowledge, instead, they just rush through chapters.
When talking about jobs, everywhere is needed a person with technology/computer knowledge, especially in businesses to keep up with their customer loyalty because when one company has a competitive advantage over other one, customers notice and they might change a business preference because they have a better system that some other one.
It will be nice to know that you are helping society or at least the business market, to step up to the next level with technology advancement.
