The worst thing about San Antonio College is institutionaly racist policies against our mostly black and latino demographic. Chairs of the college are turning the school into a trade school, with adjunct faculty and profiteers pushing Kubby principles. The department underminds our rich humanities department so they could require students to take a shameful "7 habits of highly effective people". The philosophy department is humorously understaffed and their monthly topical lectures are detested by the board. Our teachers disaprove of all that goes on, but are kept quite. Those in power shame us all.
I think the professors and the administration at this school do not help students in the least most of the time. I always have the most problems with the financial aid department. They tend to either send out my refund too late or they get everything messed up where I have so many problems to fix. Most of the time, it is also hard to find the right people to fix any problem. Most people at the school do not help with problems and you have to find a specific person. It is just terrible.
The worst thing about the school, I am currently attending is finding parking. Its is getting harder to find parking spaces close to the building you have class by. The good thing about this is that it does encourage you to be early getting to class. You want to be early to get a great parking space and this causes you to be on time and early to your class. In other words, it is forced promptness and is effective to those who have a tardiness problem.
I have been to SAC twice, once 12 years ago on Campus and next semester doing it online to finish my degree. The only thing I can think of is that it is very hard to get in and out of the campus. You have to allow the extra time, to park and walk far. Fortunately doing it online eliminates that but I've had to make trips to campus for administration issues and it wasn't real convenient.
I really wouldn't consider anything about my school to be bad. It is a great place for people to recieve basic credits that are transferrable for a great price. I am very lucky to be able to atend this school for two semesters and save money before transferring next year.
I think that the worst thing is that sometimes they drop a couse because of low enrollment but you don't find out until teh week school starts. Then you have to scramble to find something else that fits your degree plan in order to keep your hours and not loose a semester.
The worst thing for me is the commute. I would prefer to attend a school where i can live on campus. Its a better way to get to know your peers and get closer to them.
The worst thing about my school is that it's so far from my house. It takes me an hour just to get to school, and that's on a good day!
The worst thing about my school is that it is downtown; their is alot of traffic, people, and not enough parking for everyone.
