It does not value your effort in studying as much as participating in social events in campus. There are not many good professors. Here is my side story. I have never applied for financial aid, but they have taken away my tuition refund since last quarter. I've been told that it is their mistake, but still haven't received the refund.
This was a class on Inspection and had numerous breakoffs like how to get a job, how to write a resume, mathematics, etc and it was a 430 hour class, paid for by the MDTA of 1964, and I was the 3rd fo the 9 people who got certified. This was taught very well and I have been an inspector of aircraft parts since my first job at Precision Machine Works in 1955.
I graduated in 2012 and while I was there, financial aid services were difficult to work with. Half of the staff were rude and lacked customer service skills, even taking into account that working in the financial aid office can be stressful. I can say that the financial aid department was lacking organization. However, there are quality professors there. Most teachers I had the pleasure of learning from cared about my success and personal well-being. If you need someone to speak to about your struggles, the professors would do their best to accommodate you and listen (as long as you communicate your circumstances thoroughly and appropriately). The most important aspect of a college or university are the professors and the quality of teaching and cultivation they provide.
