I enjoy the small environment of the the school and the passion of current and past Quinnites. I would like to see the faculty be more approachable in order to help promote a better understanding of the content being taught. Some of the courses that I was placed into, did not necessarily go towards my plan nor will be recognized as transferable credits if I choose to attend another school. I was not aware of this until half way through the semester. I would like the administration to be more organized and communicate more with all the students. Healthier choices in the cafeteria are greatly needed!
