As an online grad student in the MBA program, you can expect no instruction in any of the quantitative classes needed to provide you skills that will set you apart as a job candidate in today's competitive business world.
Many professors do not understand how to teach online, nor distribute online material well and in a manner, you can understand.
It could be so much better. There are students constantly under age drinking and people smoke weed in the rooms. The RAs don't do anything. The bathrooms are never clean and the hallways always smell.
The teams at Parkside suck. Not really sure why any athlete wanting to make it big would even think of attending this school.
Planning for post graduation is a mixed bag at Parkside. From what I have heard you really have to pressure people to get the answers or help you want. Some get frustrated with the lack of help they may find from the school.
The athletics are very lacking. No one cares about going to the games and the teams for the most part are not very good. There is a nice field house anyone can use and a decent weight room. Nothing to write home about.
No type of information provided whatsoever.
The campus is like a ghost town on weekends which can get annoying and lonely but is can be beneficial to students. Students have an easier time focusing on their school work that needs to get done. After all, that's why we are here.
Being the only Division II school in the state of Wisconsin, it is kind of expected that the nice facilities would be tailored towards the athletes. Someone like me who plays tennis casually has to deal with a very poor upkeep on the courts. Don't expect to play tennis here at all if you do. I have never attended any sporting events here, so I do not know what the atmosphere is like. There was a recently renovated weight room on the ground floor of the Sports and Activity Center that replaced two racquetball courts before I arrived on campus, unfortunately. The weight room is very nice clean and it is used by more non-athletes as the athletes tend to use the weight room upstairs.
There are not really any attractions that are in walking distance to campus.
There is little to no desire for students to be in a fraternity. Occasionally you can see the colors of a fraternity and know they belong to a group, but not much else is known.
It is difficult to find a professor at this school who is truly interested in their student's success.
The campus police are very strict on drug policies and drug control. They hold seminars to inform students of new drugs such as "bath salts" and new drugs. There are periodic dorm checks. Also strict with alcohol use for under age drinkers, the problem is with all these efforts they are very lenient about punishment and the consequences of students actions. The harshest punishment is being charged a fine. The idea of charging a fine for an offense is all said and good but they continually have more and more problems with the same few offenders. I believe that everyone deserves a second chance, but 10 second chances is more than enough and I think there should be some more serious consequences. rather than just a fine and a slap on the wrist.
It is pretty average. There are a few interesting events a week.
You have to get to school early to get a spot, otherwise you have to park very far away,
Overprices. Weird hours. Half the time I end up eating out of the vending machine. Awful.
It's very dark, heavily wooded area. Makes for a beautiful campus in the daylight, but walking way out to your car in the dark parking lot at the end of the day can be terrifying. Let's not forget there was a scary homeless man who appeared to live on campus a few winters ago. Might also feel safer if the $150 I shell out for parking every year went to any sort of good use. Parking lots are frequently icy and poorly cleared. Have had many new scratches on my vehicle since attending here, and recently it seems someone thinks it is funny to screw with tires in the parking lot. Carry mace.
