I am currently a sophomore at UCM and it's a love hate relationship. I love the people and the facilities such as the gym. I do how ever hate the food. It is absolutely disgusting. You are required to have a meal plan even as a sophomore. When you want to change the meal plan, you can not. The dorms are run down and need ALOT of work such as floors, walls, heating/air conditioning, bathrooms need the most work. (I wear shoes in the bath and it's a suite). I've not had the best experience with some teachers, however some are amazing! I have changed my major 5 times and they give you no direction. As long as you are giving them money, they do not care.
A college always has ups and downs, UCM however makes you think about other colleges to go to and if you have to stay.
As an interior design student, the art department is amazing. I have learned so much already in only three semesters and cannot wait for the rest of my college years. All of the art/interior design professors truly care about each individual student and his or her success, which I do not believe is available at every college. They are relatable, knowledgeable, and great people. I know I chose the right school. As stressful as it is to get all the projects done, tests prepared for, and other classes taken care of, I would not trade it for a thing, as I know that it is all just building up to my future success. When I first visited the campus as a high school senior, there was a different vibe at UCM than at other colleges that I had visited. There was a more welcoming, inviting, enthusiastic atmosphere that really impressed me, along with the fact that both the art department and the interior design program are nationally accredited.
I absolutely love this university. I fell in love from the moment I first stepped foot on this campus. The faculty and staff are so down to earth and helpful in any way possible. Even the professors are amazing. Some might seem intimidating, but that's okay because they are only trying to teach us in order to get ahead in life and in our career. The campus is so beautiful and I'm always smiling when I walk through campus. It's a small campus but not too small, which is good. The classroom size is just perfect because you get more hands on experience and one on one interaction with everyone. I am absolutely in love with this campus and university and I would like to hope you will be as well.
