I am in total agreement about improving our student services.

I am not sure if anything has changed since I finished up there a few years back, but when I was there the Advising/Admissions staff were beyond horrible at several of the different colleges on campus. Many were unfriendly and completely unwilling to want to work with you. I understand that they get some boneheads looking for an easy way out sometimes, but many times students have legit issues and need assistance from those types of staff members.

I was in the business college for my undergrad and getting any assistance out of those folks was like pulling teeth. This is assuming you could get in to talk to one of them. If you wanted an appt, it would take weeks since they only offered those on Fridays. Monday-Thursday was walk in only and always packed.

Don't even get me started on the College of Ed advising/admissions staff. They made no appts. It was always only walk in. I went in there looking for information on the graduate/masters program I was interested in. They pretty much blew me off and told me that since I was not an Ed undergrad to get lost.

Well it's a good thing I took the initiative to track down the department head for the masters program. I told him what happened and he was stunned and said that was totally inaccurate and got me started on what I needed to do to get into the program.

I probably would have never gotten my masters from WMU had I not been able to track him down. Having staff like I described in student service type of areas like advising/admissions cannot happen cause WMU will lose students and perspective students (like I was for graduate work) to other schools due to that.

I only hope things have changed since I finished up my grad work there in 2004. My gut feeling though is they have not cause it only got worse in my years at WMU from 1998-2004.
