Enrollment and registration is a JOB. I should have gotten paid to jump through all their hoops and meet all their deadlines. I needed to return home to Michigan because my father was about to pass away. After he passed, I returned home to finish registration. Late registration is a nightmare and you end up with the bottom of the barrel in quality (I think). I knew more about my course requirements and classes needed than the advisors did. I have one course this semester with an Indian instructor who is a doctor at a nearby hospital. Nice guy, but I'm constantly trying to understand his speech and his organization methods. When 80% of my grade is on lecture, I should be able to understand him. I'm constantly seeking outside resources to teach me what I need to know. even then I'm not sure if I'm receiving the correct information. Very little guidance and direction other than my textbook. My primary way of learning is visual/tactile and my secondary is audio. The textbook is of little value to me yet he insists that everything I need to know is in the book. What student knows that bimolecular means 2 or more layers? Yes, this is an example of what I have to read and translate in order to understand the composition of the plasma membrane. I spend 70-80 hours a week on this one course and I'm still not doing well. This may sadly affect my 4.0gpa. I'm not sure why this man is instructing or who is responsible for the course structure. This is the 3rd college I've attended and the worst experience so far! I'm also over 40.

I have had three teachers at this school that were terrific. They genuinely cared and wanted to engage you. However, the rest of the school is incompetent. It is practically impossible to get a hold of anyone and even when you do they do not follow up by returning calls or emails. I have not had one semester in which they have not messed up my paperwork or in some way just completely screw up my funding. If it were not for the fact that it is easier to transfer with an associates I would have been gone a long time ago.

Absolutely the most incompetent school ever. There has not been one semester where they haven't lost my paperwork, screwed up my funding, my schedule and the teachers don't care one bit. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone and this 4.0 student can't wait to get out of there.
