Alumnus - Grad Year 1999

Academics Rating

Academics in my department - Communication Sciences and Disorders - were not adequate, save for 2 professors. One of the central professors taught several required courses. In each course, the only assessment were 3 exams (no other work assigned). Many questions on each exam were invalid in that they required knowledge not accessible through the course. Other questions were poorly worded and difficult to understand. If a student failed a course (B- was failing in all courses), he/she had to repay and retake it. Failing the same course twice (or any 2 courses) was grounds for termination from the program. The majority of students elected to cheat on this professor's exams, circulating exams obtained when the course was offered online (he never revised his exams). Students terminated from the program would lose everything: all tuition and money invested, all work done, and all time and work spent in 4 or 5 practica. A very unfortunate situation, and no indication that anyone cared about the students.


Academics Rating

I love all the programs offered at this school.
