There is so much going on right now behind the scenes at Cambridge college. You can't just sit back as a student paying to go to a college that has been deceptive, greedy, and only out to get your money. You have to be smart, and you have to stop supporting an administration that is pretending that everything is going to be okay. For the students who are in denial thinking that what took place at our school isn't going to effect you,, than your wrong!!!! Even if you are going to graduate with your Associates degree, our school now has gained a bad reputation. Think about Parks college and what they are now known for. We are paying for the mistakes of the administration and now there isn't a way to go back and fix it,,, we are stuck with what we enrolled ourselves into.
I also want to put something out there. Before you decide that you want to stick it out and not switch to a diploma, I want you to think about how much an Associates is going to help you. We are the only school that offers a degree. There are many employers out there hiring techs, MA and others without an Associates. Before all of this happened, you could take your associates and go further, therefore benefiting you. But, now after talking to my X-ray teacher, they told me that it doesn't matter if you have an associates or not( coming from our college) Just something to think about. Why not take the money back from your GE classes and after you graduate with a diploma, go to another college that will matter. Spend your money wise and worth while. I am just really now starting to think ,,,,, are they offering an Associates to get more money from me,, when in reality it doesn't matter when getting hired somewhere? How much is that Associates really worth? I don't know about surgical tech, but as far as x-ray students,,,, our teacher plainly said,,,, it doesn't make a difference to have an Associates or diploma out in the field. Of course, if you were at a university or other college it would matter, but not from our school. Just be careful about the deception that is going on, and use wisdom. Even if you go to student services and ask questions, don't just believe what they say,, you have to remember that everyone is out for their own. Their not looking out for the students best interest, their looking out for their own.

Central Ray is pissed, but where are the other children's stories. All I am seeing is the pissing part. You need to put in some stories for human interest. Actually, I think that a website like this is not very productive. You say that you don't want to bitch, but that seems to be what is actually being done. I am not a big fan of Halloween, but hey, the decorations whether there or not will not change the accreditation process. This is an irrelevant bitch to boot.

I don't think criticicism is the same as bitching. The people affected by this schools negligence could be in a lot of trouble. I think that this website could be used by the students to help each other out. I am interested in the opinions that anyone has to offer. I don't think it's wrong to also vent a little frustration in the process. I would like to have people contribute what they plan to do. I appreciate what Bucky and Central Ray are trying to do. I wish I had thought of it myself. I would like advice from others based on what they have experienced. I think the point is we are all in it together, so lets work together. There is a girl in my class who told me she spoke to a lawyer about her options. I would like to see her write about what she found out. Personally, I'm considering trying to take two classes at the same time. Maybe I can finish before the final decision about the accredidation arrives. I hope for the best. Maybe the school will be fine, and everything will be ok. I don't want to sit by and wait, hoping. Everybody has heard the old saying, "hope in one hand and..." well you know the rest.

Anyway thanks Bucky and Central Ray for doing the leg work. I hope the results of this website will turn for the better.

Happy Halloween!

Central Ray is Pissed, and other children's stories...

Central Ray here.

I think Halloween is great. I like candy, and kids aren't just for smacking around anymore. OK, great....I'm not a grinch, right?

I'm glad we got that out of the way.

What is a better use of the school staff's time? Putting leaves in the freaking hallway, or DOING EVERYTHING HUMANLY POSSIBLE TO GET THE GODDAMNED ACREDITATION?

How long did that take them? Check out the Financial Aid office. I'll bet it took those gals four hours to put that stuff up. It will take them another four hours to take it down. Being conservative, I'll bet three employees did that. I consulted some ancient Chinese scrolls and found out that 3 employees working for 8 hours each is 24 manhours. TWENTY FOUR FLIPPING HOURS ON GODAMNED HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS!!!!!

When I see stuff like that, it makes me ask questions. Questions like: Why is there no Director of Education yet? Why are needed curriculum revisions not done? Why are students waiting for two, and even three days of class to go by without their textbooks?

Here is the biggest one:

Why haven't I gotten a call from them to discuss my options yet?

I believe we have a talented group at the school. I'm not picking on Financial Aid, I'm actually giving them a compliment here: I'll bet those ladies could solve some of these problems if they were asked to. I'll bet they could post "Help Wanted" ads on the appropriate websites and place ads in the papers. I'll bet they could call around to people in the education industry and look for a qualified DOE. I'll bet they could come up with a system for supplying the students with textbooks ontime, or help out with the curriculum revisions. They are smart and talented in there. I know this because I am, at times, an idiot. They have helped me with all kinds of things before, and I'm not a guy that ever has easy problems to fix.

I wish their talent and time wasn't being wasted by spreading yard waste around the halls. I wish the hundreds of dollars spent on decorations could be given as a bonus to one of the teachers, or one of the hardworking front desk staff.

I wish I was taller and better looking, too.

By the way - does anybody else feel bad for the poor cleaning lady?

Keep those comments rolling in, folks.

I understand why our Administration prefers to treat all of us students like nine year olds. That age group is easier to control, and take advantage of. However, none of the students at Cambridge College are nine. Which is a shame because I’m sure nine year olds would appreciate all the Halloween decorations that have been carefully placed in the halls and classrooms of our building. I’m not one that likes to complain, but I can’t help but wonder if the time and resources devoted to our little haunted house couldn’t be better utilized. In the times we are experiencing at Cambridge College, is it really appropriate to devote money and man hours to celebrating Halloween? Personally, I have been consumed on a daily basis with the worries of our current situation. I know I would better appreciate the same devotion of resources used to celebrate a kid’s holiday, to remedy this mess we find ourselves in instead. I have yet to receive any personal attention to discuss my options in light of paying for an education that may not be accredited. I know of a few hundred students that could occupy all that free time our faculty appears to have. Also, it appears to me we are still lacking essential teaching staff. Maybe we could offer our “decorations budget” as an incentive, to hire quality persons for our education. After all, Cambridge College, I am giving you thousands of dollars for an education, not to host a Halloween party.
