Hi Deanna,I am the named student in the Charleston and Beckley paper, Deanna Cernuto. Please, please contact our lawyer and give him any information about administration trying to keep us in the dark. We have instructors now who are literally on edge for fear their names will be connected to leaked information. I didn't want to put my name or personel email on topix before the lawsuit was made public, but I can now. Feel free to contact me at [email protected]
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the guts it took to initiate the class action. There are many of us who intend on joining and some of us will be brining some pretty interesting evidence to the table. However, we are extremely distrustful of admin, and know there would be retaliation disguised as something else. Being that we are so close to graduating, even with the future issues that are caused by no accreditation, we can't risk it . However, the day after graduation we are all over it :) I've contacted a friend who is a lawyer in order to get a copy of the 24 page report filed by your attorney. We want to see how similar our issues are, but after speaking with people on other campuses I'm almost certain they're virtually identical. The underclassmen here feel like they are in the same position. MSU is stringing them along with CCNE. After paying so much and dealing with MSU's BS they feel like they are trapped and are afraid to speak out for fear of sabotage of their records, becoming entrenched in debt and having nothing to show for it, and etc... I hate that they are still stringing students along. They did the same damn thing with NLNAC (at least on this campus), telling us just to wait and everything would be fine, despite the lack of logic and evidence to the contrary. However, a teacher/ low level admin admitted last week said they knew the whole time NLNAC was not going to happen! Now they're doing the same thing with CCNE! I haven't seen anything, other than a syllabus change and the requirement that tests come from Beckley to indicate they are REALLY working on implementing TRUE changes! I'm not exaggerating. Nothing...and it's bad how lackadaisical they are about 'how' and 'what' is taught. Again, this is my campus...no idea about the others. But I digress ...
So, thanks it took a tremendous amount of guts to put your name out there! I think it will be worth the risk in the end.
If anyone on here wishes to contact me about this issue you can email me at [email protected]
No, that is not my real name...I'm not that gutsy just yet.
