I used to have wonderful things to say about this college, but now I hate it with a passion.
I had attended the Amherst campus where I graduated with my Graphic Design degree. Never had any problems that time, so after a year out of school, I decided to go back to get my Interactive Media Design degree. Told me that I'd only have to take like 6 classes, and I'd be done in 3 semesters. Not bad for a 2nd degree, so I re-enrolled into the school.
Worst mistake ever.
Within the year span that I wasn't at the school, they made so many changes, that it became absolutely ridiculous. Adding classes to keep up with the SUNY schools, and using the same assignments for the same 4 classes. The 3 semesters turned into 4 full time semesters, and the added classes were such a waste of time, it was ridiculous.
The instruction this time around was terrible too. They fired one of the instructors which left 2 teachers to juggle a bunch of classes. So I got stuck with an instructor who instead of teaching, just gave us already written code and told us what it did. Added to the fact that he looked like he didn't even want to be there and taught pretty much my entire program, I learned absolutely nothing, and couldn't stand behind my degree if I even wanted to.
My biggest issue though was how the advisers and even the dean were not helpful at all when it came to issues you were having when it came to classes.
My first issue was when my adviser "forgot" about a class that I couldn't take before I took another class. This then screwed everything up and made me drop down to part time, which made me lose most of my financial aid, and then add 1 semester to my time there. Never got a sorry or anything for that. I ended up having to take out more money in loans because my financial aid went down to nothing because I wasn't a full time student anymore.
Second and biggest issue was recently, during my last semester. I started running into babysitting issues and it was becoming hard for me to attend classes because I was an evening student and I would be in class sometimes until 11 at night. I had emailed my adviser asking what I could do and she offered no help what so ever and then started to just ignore my emails and calls. Finally I came out and said that I'd just have to drop out because they weren't offering me any options and were threatening to kick me out because of the new attendance policy they adapted. Ended with me getting a template email saying they dropped me from the college and "wished me good luck in my future endeavors". Never bothered telling me what was going on, or to look into how I could finish the degree or anything.
I had 3 weeks left to go to graduate.
So now I wasted 5 semesters of time and money, wracked up more student loan debt, learned absolutely nothing, and have nothing to show for it. And all they could say was "good luck". They don't care about the students and just care about the money. Do not go here and waste your time.
