Detailed Ratings

My overall experience with this college so far has shown me that a portion of the student body is only there because they feel they are obligated to be there and not because they want to. The teachers are off and on about being in class on time and a small portion seem to have a very unorganized routine an example of such would be making up projects on the spot that aren't really explained and presented in a timely manner giving students a day or two to prepare for some projects while others are mentioned weeks in advance just never seemed very organised since there has already been a syllabus prepared in advance.
