Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Did Master's program at Orlando extension campus. Heavy but relevant work load. Instructors mostly PhDs working in the field and far more interesting and accessible than strictly academicians. MS in HRM is so close to MBA that I could have done MBA with two more courses. I felt as if I mattered, the school cared, and that it was money well spent. Each class (I took two per quarter) met for 4 hours once a week, a long time after a work day, but....!
It's a good, small college if you can afford it. People are usually nice, but trying to get anything done can be a hassle sometimes with the school offices.
This school is not that great. I deeply regret not going to any of the other schools I got into, including some ivy leagues. The academics are okay, not too challenging, you can slip through the system even if you are not learning much. The facilities are pretty good for a small school. It is hard to find intelligent people, a lot are smart, but very few are intelligent and intellectually stimulating. A lot of the people are also unnecessarily dramatic, immature, and self centered; it was surprising to see the small amount of people that actually cared about world news, the arts, literature, and frankly, anything other than themselves. If you like sciences/engineering but are also interested in an enriching environment then do not go to this school. The arts and humanities are awful, not because of the staff, but because humanities require student participation, and if the students are incapable of profound thought, then the classes suck. I was not miserable, I made lots of friends, joined a sports team, kept a high GPA, and had the classic college experience, but nevertheless I did miss intellectual stimulation. I love science, and the science at this school is fine, but for a truly well rounded education go somewhere else. I wish someone would have warned me about the lack of intellectual engagement at this campus.
This is the saddest excuse for a college I have ever heard of. This place is more concerned about expanding, money, and switching to unnecessary methods of teaching rather than actually teaching the students and whether they learn the material or not. I am a freshman and basically all of my teachers have been horrible, and my first year adviser was not of much help. As an example I had to pick a different class because my schedule wouldn't allow me to have the class I originally had because it would conflict with another. I was given a list of classes that I could choose from to fit my schedule, but the class I chose shouldn't have been offered to freshman in the first place. I only kept the class because I thought I heeded the ours for my financial aid, but I actually had over the maximum hours required. Another example my math teachers require us to buy a book that we never even use, the teachers don't even teach us. We pay for the worst teaching software possible, all the teachers do is go over problems similar to the ones on the software and maybe answer some questions other students have, and if students ask about the formulas the teachers explain half of it or they don't even bother to explain how they arrived at the solution the did. I honestly have never had this much trouble from a math class in my life. Basically the school and teachers are more concerned about money and building an imaginary reputation rather than actually doing their job.
French was good, but I hated all my Computer Science classes. Most of professors don't explain a thing; they just know how to give assignments. No feedback on those assignments, and no feedback later on those assignments, not even the grade. Some do explain stuff, but what they explain is way too different from what they ask on assignments, so basically it's useless going to classes....
