Clayton State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
It was a great experience and interesting journey, but if one remain focused it can be accomplished and worth the challenge within this path....
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.
