I wish I had known exactly career path I wanted befroe I started taking classes. The advisors were very helpful in steering me in the right direction.


I wish that I'd known the advisors were so unflexible and unfriendly. Everyone in my course program has had problems with the advisor for our program. She is very unknowledgable and unhelpful at times because there are so many students spread across different campuses because of the way the program is structured.

The only thing I can think of that I wish I had known before coming here is, I wish I had known in advance about the limited parking. Evidently from my understanding I should have been on top of the the parking situation way before now. As of now I have to wait for a few weeks after school starts for the fall to see who drops out, so that I can try to get a parking place on campus. I am going to have to figure something else out until then?

Before coming to this school, I had taken about a 4 year break from college. I knew that I wanted to get a degree in Business, but didn't realize that I had to take a writing proficiency exam or a basic computer course before being eligible to apply for the College of Business. If I had known this, I would have completed these courses prior to transferring to UHD.
