Good qualities include: flexibility in class schedule, the professors are very helpful and go the extra mile with students. Bad qualities: Communication (except among professors) stinks! For simple issues, I have had to speak with 3-4 people to have it resolved. I'm "assigned" an advisor I've never met who has chosen my classes for me. Now that I'm entering my second semester, I'm being forced to schedule an appointment with my "advisor" before I can register. No one (again, except professors) responds to emails or returns phone calls. I'm sure I'm not the only person having this issue since this is happening with many departments/people.
