Stephens College

I am a current student at Stephens and LOVE it here! My major is in education and I honestly couldn't ask for better professors to learn off of. All professors here are incredibly passionate about what they teach and offer so much in terms of information and also support. The campus is also so beautiful and small, it's a perfect place to call home. Columbia is a cute little town with so much to do, and being close to both Mizzou and Columbia College allows for you to make so many friends from all over. Classmates here support each other to the fullest extent and will go out of their way to help someone who needs it. I have never met a bad administrative person here to be completely honest. In fact, they worked super hard to help me with my tuition when I was struggling financially. I love it here, I have nothing negative to say on almost all accounts.... the food could be a little better though :p

I guess I must be above average my loan was paid in full within 3 years of graduation well above the average quoted here for an annual salary for a BA and the student body sucked here at Hesser College lack of focus on academics students wasted class time and no shows. Faculty really cared for the students who applied themselves.

This school was an absolute nightmare administratively. The "help" from counsellors left me missing four classes I needed to transfer to UC Davis in the two years I went to school here. I tried extremely hard to get the help I needed to transfer easily and within the time frame I should have been able to do it and they sent me in the wrong direction. The teachers weren't ready to start school on the first day and had us starting behind by not posting necessary books until the first day of class. Several professors were not interested in being there, including a custodian that stood in to teach for a Stats class because they didn't have enough teachers. Very few full time teachers here, which means they care more about saving money than having quality teachers and the full time teachers they did choose to keep (political science in particular) were atrocious. What a horrible experience from beginning to end. I completely lost my desire to go back to school for a new education at the age of 46. I guess I will just stick to what I know. Tragic.

University of California Irvine

BEST CHOICE I COULD HAVE POSSIBLY MADE! UCI is such an up and coming school, getting more prestigious every year. Lots of diversity. Ranked number 1 nationally for low income students, who later become high net worth individuals. Super eco-friendly (first campus with electric busses). People may say the party scene is lame, but I lived on the Newport Beach Peninsula my junior/senior year which is where the bars/party scene is located. And how many college students can literally afford to live on the beach?? It's a once in a lifetime experience! Amazing study abroad program. Great sports. World renowned professors. Free counseling resources, career center, tutoring, disability services. They JUST redid the freshman dorms/dining hall, and they are BEAUTIFUL! Great alumni network upon graduation too! I don't have enough great things to say about UCI.

Our student has enjoyed an active social life (pre COVID), experienced a diverse student body and has incredible internship opportunities. He says the food could be better but there are plenty of other option on campus and nearby. All in a great city to experience. The University?s communication is excellent.
