WELL...I AM WRITING THIS ABOUT THE CURRENT STAFF ! I had registered on May 22, 2012 for two Summer Courses. I even asked the young lady on the other side of the counter, "Is that it?" She replied, "Yes. You are registered in those two classes." Then I left. I thought to myself...WOW! That was easy and fast!
When I returned on Monday June 4th for my two classes, which by the way, my first one was at 9:45am, neither of the instructors had me on their list. So, after classes, now it's 12:45pm, I went to the Admissions Building. That is when the nightmare began.
I am 43 years old. Haven't been in school in DECADES. I was unsure if I should even attempt this. But, I did.
That was my first and last day of school.
I came to find out, that out of the NINE staff members I had encountered throughout my Admission/Registgration process...NOT ONE OF THEM BROUGHT UP THE FACT THAT I HAD TO APPEAL...YES, APPEAL...THE F#*@#*G COURSES I TOOK BACK IN 1985...YEP...1985.
So, after I left there at 5:35pm, I WAS NO LONGER, ACTUALLY, I NEVER WAS ENROLLED AND REGISTERED! I REALLY ENJOYED THE TWO CLASSES. i DID'T FEEL OUT OF PLACE AT ALL. THE INSTRUCTORS WERE WONDERFUL. I WAS STOKED BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS.
ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT THE DEADLINE FOR APPEALS WAS OVER. I COULDN'T GET THE FINANCIAL AID. I WAS MORE THAN WELCOME TO PAY FOR IT OUT OF POCKET...YEAH...RIGHT! THAT'S WHY I APPLIED FOR FINANCIAL AID IN THE FIRST PLACE...AH DUH!!!!!!
WELL, I HAVE BEEN CRYING...AND CRYING...AND CRYING...JUST LIKE A BABY, AND I AM NOT AFRAID TO LET THE WORLD KNOW. THAT EXPERIENCE BROKE MY HOPE...MY DREAMS...AND MY FUTURE. I REFUSED TO ENROLL IN THE FALL SEMESTER.
IF I HAVE TO SCRUB TOILETS WITH A TOOTHBRUSH AND LIVE IN A CARDBOARD BOX UNDER A BRIDGE WITH A BUNCH OF CRACKHEADS...THAT WOULD BE A WELCOME EXPERIENCE COMPARED TO FLORISSANT VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE. THEY GIVE SAINT LOUIS COMMUNITY COLLEGE A BAD RAP.
I AM DONE WITH COLLEGE.
