Not overjoyed.....

First of all it took close to a year to get my financial aid in order. I was given a list of things needed to complete the process and when I thought things were all in order I get emails from financial aid stating they needed something more. I think I ended up with 10 or more different people I emailed and it was never 1 or 2 so this became a big mess. 1 year later I started my classes. All was well, the professors are very knowledgeable but when you have a question and email one of them it takes a couple of days to get an answer or more. There is no direct line to get help. 

A true measure of competency in a college staff is how things are handled when things go wrong and CSU gets an “F”. From oopsies in getting documents filed for next term classes to a dysfunctional Career Services department that does nothing to help even after emails are sent, 3 months and nothing from them. I enjoy my course work and work very hard to maintain an “A” average, they need to work hard to get their grades up to. If nothing goes wrong and you need zero help in any way shape or form then go for it, otherwise stand in a crowded CSU administration area and scream, see what sort of response you get if any.
