I transferred from the University of New Orleans and it was a huge culture shock for me. Coming from somewhere that has all races, religions and backgrounds to a school that is predominantly white, shook me a bit. Personally, I'm not a fan of the way that the professors teach. Every one of my teachers reads directly from the powerpoint each class and puts them online, so there is no reason to go to class. The only times I go to class are to attend my labs. The TA's who teach the labs do a better job than the actual professors here. I recommend going to a community college to get your intro courses done and then transfer here if you would like to pursue a career in marine sciences/maritime majors. Don't waste your time coming here for all 4 years of school.
Review Your College
Most of the students here are friendly, as are most of the faculty. However, the administration itself is unorganized and many students find it difficult to navigate the inner workings of the school. Registering for classes is difficult because of the way the system is set up, and it's almost impossible for students in a particular major to get internships through the school. The cafeteria is expensive and below standards. Students are required to buy a meal plan whether they use it or not. I myself rarely use the meal plan, simply because the food is terrible. On a positive note the education programs here are good, even if the administration here is terrible. Most of the students at this school - or at least the engineering and marine transportation majors - find jobs related to their field of study within six months after graduation.
Everything from biology to physics is hands on, the labs make it real and he university makes real use of their island location. Boat trips, water sampling, and trolling for fish I.D. are a few to name. The dive classes are fantastic, the sailing is incredible, and the classes in depth. The small campus encourages students to go to the town which is just on the other side of the bridge and they even offer students once a month free movie tickets. It's a great college and I'm loving all the time I've spent there
