Master's student 3/9/2020

Currently very frustrated. Technical support is either 0 or 100%. I just spent 30 minutes on hold at first in place to get a recording saying there were technical difficulties and a hang up. All of my professors have been great but some do not have IA support and let's say if I weren't a very good student I wouldn't become a good one through feedback and constructive criticism. I am learning from the materials presented but am very disenchanted with the program right now.

I HATE LAMAR UNIVERSITY!!! They call you everyday when you are starting and when they want to recruit you then they drop you like a hot potato after you graduate. The school failed to inform me of deadlines that will have a great impact on my future and my career, not to mention cost me lots of extra money. They have no excuse for their actions with all of the technology in today's world. STAY AWAY!!
