The university has low standards and low expectations. If you are really intelligent, and want an academic challenge, I recommend that you go somewhere else.
No, I had a really horrible experience as a graduate student. The math department was not interested in helping me as a graduate student, but more concerned with the image that undergraduates had of the university.
For example, I once had a parent mail in their kids' tests to the chair of the department. Even though the student had done little to no work, and had failed by a large margin, they were convinced that it was my fault. The chair then proceeded to regrade all my exams while I was sitting in his office. He was more concerned that they might have a bad opinion of the school instead of giving the grade that the student deserved.
I was also taken off the teaching schedule because I failed a relative of the chancellor.
