Not at This College!!! I would enroll in a college that doesn't force transfer students to take placement tests that according to the catalog aren't required & then have them repeat classes only to transfer them in at a later date, but refuse to refund the $ for having been forced to repeat the classes. It has taken 3 years for my proof of residency to be approved because: "we don't know what happened to all the paperwork you have been submitting for 3 years & NO it is NOT going to be retroactive". And transfer credits: "Yes, you graduated with a 4.0 AS degree & no you shouldn't have had to take a placement exam but you did & will have to repeat all but ONE of your basic education requirements". This college is about the $$$$$ not education.
I Love History! I have been jerked around so much on classes needed, transfer credits, and trying to get classes are a nightmare! Most are offered once a school year and if you don't get enrolled before all seats are taken then you're held up until the class is offered again, in a year. And with most being "variable" even though required it can take longer.
Most History classes are listed as "variable" making it extremely difficult to take classes that are required. Independent study is frowned upon. The professors don't often encourage students to gain more info than is presented in class & generally push their own political views as the only acceptable ones.
What? Are You Kidding Me?! The campus police are hardly ever to be seen unless the alumni or regents, etc. are on campus. Any complaints about this are met with: Oh no they're everywhere. This is a lie. I spend a lot of time in my car in the main lot & literally days can go by without seeing any campus police.
Not Enough Working Labs – The labs are rarely available in Pullen Hall because they use them for classes & the ones in Ort Library are normally taken up by students on facebook, myspace, online games, etc. Have your own computer & printer because the wait to use the labs is ludicrous.
