The professors not only know your name, but they also work with you and if you ask for help or extra credit most professors will help you to work something out. My favorite classes are Biology because the professor is animated and you never know what to expect. I also enjoy the education classes, becuase the atmosphere is really friendly, and the professors really know what they are talking about. Class participation is common, depending on the class, but all professors tend to encourage participation. Philosophy and Psychology classes are almost entirely discussion based, and students are free to express thier strongest opinions (besides, it makes class interesting!). Students at Dowling are not competitive against each other, but do compete well against other schools when looking for jobs, particularly in the education field. I have spent time with professors out of class, learning research or just talking in passing. The academic requirements at Dowling are fairly standard, and similar to other schools. Dowling is highly geared to getting students jobs, and has a career services center where students can obtain paid or non-paid internships, as well as research work studies.
My least favorite professor none other than Professor Christine Sacco Sanchez the most deceptive two faced untruthful corrupt useless rotten excuse for a human being in that college. That woman is too lazy and so incredibly reluctant to do her job as a teacher that she allows students to give other students grades. Which in turn makes for no intellectual conversations in this college as well as an overly competitive and cutthroat ambience where screw jobs and con jobs run rampant.
There is absolutely no intellectual life in this school. I have heard many extremely ignorant conversations by nearly everybody in the student body. The classes are extremely easy, but you really do not learn anything in them. There have been kids who have gotten below a 2.0 for 3 semesters in a row and they are still in this school! This is in direct contrast to the policy of "academic probation" that Dowling publishes in its handbook. This school does not care about its academic reputation more than it cares about money. This is not a place for learning, as the students are not conductive to it at all.
