Overall

I signed up for online classes, and it was a waste of time and money. The teacher, Dale Paxman, obstinately refused to help me and told me I should quit.

Academics

I had been working on two online writing classes when I had a family emergency and couldn't work for two weeks. When I came back and asked my two teachers if they would help me get caught up, one said yes, but the other, Dale Paxman, said no, and that I should quit and I should have planned better. When I asked a second time for his help so that I wouldn't fail, he said, "emphatically no", and that I should quit. The school said, "don't drop out or you'll owe money." So, I didn't drop out, I just did what Dale Paxman said and didn't try to get caught up. I got F's and now they claim I owe them nearly $3,000 or I'll be turned over to collections. What a wonderful school.

College Life

It was an online school, so I don't know about the atmosphere. But I know the online teachers leave something to be desired, and nothing feels professional. You're on your own.

Overall

I like that it close to my home and that the atmosphere looks so live. I know people who attend this school so I am happy I know some people already. I attended this college while I was participating in Upward Bound. I did it for four years, while in high school and I just loved the whole experience! The whole campus is so beautiful! It's a lot of walking but the exercise is great!

Academics

I am a prospective student so I don't have much of an idea. The class size varies. But most are lecture halls. There are many types of different programs to choose from. I am not sure about how the professors might be.

College Life

There are lots of local places to eat and to go have fun! There is a bowling alley and great restaurants to eat at! There are many organizations and sports to do. It's not far from a mall, so if you want to go shop or eat, it's close! The community surroundings is great. People are friendly.
