I had a great experience when I went to register for classes today with Ms Regina in admissions. She was very nice and pleasant. She was very much aware of job description. I wish we can have wonderful people like her in the customers service fields today.

Overall Rating:

This school is terrible and the people that work in the offices are some of the rudest people I've ever met. I absolutely hate it when I have to go into the office for anything or even make a phone to someone for help because they act as if they don't want to help you when you come to them for problems. Every time you go in one of the offices or call an office on the phone, they try to rush you as if they don't care. They speak to you as if you're already supposed to know all the answers and just seem condescending and it makes me not even want to go to anyone for help. They also rarely give you any real information over the phone and their answer is basically just to look for answers on your own. I've either had to call more then once with the hope I'll get to speak to someone different who can actually help me or physically go into the office just to get an answer to a simple question. I honestly wish that I had choosen to go to school somewhere else. I can't wait for my final year at this school to be over and will not reccomend this school to anyone else. The only good thing I can say about the help at this school so far is that the counsellors are nice and are actually a big help to you when you need it.

Overall Rating:

ZERO stars for the financial aid office/department. All the staff that I was able to talk to were all terrible, like if they came from the same place, with no manners, very unprofessional including the men that's always sitting next to the door doing nothing and just giving the wrong information to the students. They all think that they are better than us just because they handle the paperwork for the financial aid. They think that you won't complain because if you do, they might not do their job right and you won't be able to get the help that you need financially but that didn't stop me from speaking out even though nobody does anything to fix the issues in that department. I just think that they don't have the right to disrespect us in anyway. Hopefully someday, things will get better !!! Good luck going there ...!!!
