Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2013

My sophomore year going into my senior year was great. However in my senior year the advisors I had were not good as senior advisors. The first advisor I had was new to the school and didn't know enough to help seniors. I asked if I could have another advisor and was given the choice of picking one. I chose a teacher I had previously had who was on top of his game as a teacher so I felt like he would make a great advisor. However, he was worst than the inexperienced advisor. He was too busy to meet with me when we scheduled meetings and very seldom responded back to emails. I noticed a discrepancy in the number of hours I had left in my senior year and I tried contacting him via email. I never received an email back. It was just a 1 hour discrepancy so I figured it must be wrong. However when it came time for me to get my degree I was advised that I was 1 hour short. The department chair tried to put blame on me stating that it is a students responsibility to make sure that they have enough hours. My issue with this is I contacted the advisor about the discrepancy and never heard anything back from him. Per the department chair this happened all the time where a person was lacking 1 or 2 hours to graduate. My question to her is why? So, is this the schools way of making more money off of the students? Students missing 1 or 2 hours to graduate should not be the norm. Dealing with this issue and the department chair made me see Clayton State in a totally different light. Initially I felt this was a school that cared and wanted the best for their students however after dealing with the department chair my feelings somewhat changed. I still think Clayton State is a good school I just don't have much respect for the department chair and some of her staff.
