You can try to slander Dr. O'Toole all you want. But, she followed her conscience and has NOTHING to be ashamed of during her time at MSU. Besides, students think she is cool and cares about them and their futures. She won't even see the nonsense because when her former students talk with her we would NEVER hurt her by passing along such nonsense. Although you have to admit that posting oneself as `rediculous' kind of says it all.

Are we talking about the same K O'Toole who can't keep a full-time job cause she can't pass a drug test? Who wears the short hooch skirts and encourages students to protest their own school? Really people...don't support that kind of person. You may hate MSU and all the administration but don't fall in cahoots with a druggie back stabbed either.
She worked full time until she stood up for what is in the best interest of the students. If I had legs like her I would show them off in short skirts too. You go O'Toole aka Tina Turner! Drugs? Get real. I guess that is the best slander you could come up with. I'll take the short skirt wearing woman any day over a bunch of crooks!!!!! Luv ya O'Toole!

Thanks for standing up to `rediculous.'
Dr. O'Toole will find it hilarious that the `cool' factor and the short skirts are still discussed!!

Such a little lady being accused of starting a revolution!! All she did was tell students to take care of their own best interests when MSU administrators were lying about the problems with accrediting. Those of us who have left MSU and are now in schools in the Northern Virginia area owe her for the information, advice, and reference letters she provided us. Not one student who transferred out last spring from MSU (with her help) regrets listening to her advice.

And, it's great to still be in touch with her. That sense of humor she has is still intact, too. Actually, she is more fun than ever. Working at MSU and that long commute was extremely stressing. She made a difference in so many students lives.

MSU seems to be afraid of posts that refer to O'Toole. GOOD for you for being supportive. MSU wants to blame her in a `kill the messenger' sort of practice. Pulling back the curtain to reveal the wizard has its risks. But not to pull back the curtain is to lose moral ground.

More professors should be like O'Toole. She is funny, kind, thoughtful, and generous. We knew something was up when she was let go after school started. Students notice these things and sends up a red flag. Not smart. You are missed Dr. Kimberly O'Toole. Many blessing and thank you for the knowledge you have blessed us with.

Dr. O'toole did not start the problems at MSU. It is silly to blame her. She was a good teacher who cared about her students and was looking to their best interests.

Wake up community. This professor was fired for telling the students the truth about higher education. How many other professors have been fired from this school since Polk came to town? Way to many to count. How many students are now teaching at this school? Looks like they have run out of qualified, experienced people.
6 degrees of MSU

Just like the old 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, MSU is the same. Everyone in Beckley knows someone who has been fired, cheated, harmed, and abused in some way by the school. Protect yourself and don't waste federal aid on this school. They can't even do graduation right. So many people thought they were graduating last May and then received phone calls from staff telling them a mistake had been made. Not just 1 or 2 students, but dozens!! This school drops the ball when it comes to serving their students. Yet, Polk and his senior administrators are still raking in the big salaries and flying around in the private plane. Don't get involved with these crooks who mess up the biggest moment in a student's life: Graduation!!

Honor the memory of O'Toole and her truthfulness. She told the truth even though she knew it would cost her. You know the truth. Don't let them rip you off. They can't even get graduation right. May was a mess. STAY away from this school. A real Christian will tell you the truth and not be motivated by GREED. But so many of the senior adminstrators have sold their souls for the money.

Thank you Dr. O'Toole. You stood up for the students and we know it cost you financially, but there is a special place in Heaven for you. You saved many of us from wasting our money on MSU any further. Dr. Hayes also spoke out and he is gone. Something is wrong with a school that can't keep its Ph.D. professors except for those who live in the area and HAVE NO OTHER CAREER CHOICES. You professors know who you are and it does not matter what you think of your programs because all students must take General Education credits and they ranked D+ at MSU for those courses. Too many useless degreed people teaching. MSSL is a MISSILE to FAILURE. No ONE else recognizes those degrees but MSU. Close the school, rent out the buildings and let this financial escapade finally end. Long after Polk is dead you will still be paying for worthless degrees. So much shame to go around for the senior administrators and professors who "talk the talk but won't walk the walk." Maupsa, you are a hypocrit. You badmouthed Polk to everyone. Claimed that MSU was a farce and just a community college. But, you are still there! All of you remaining faculty badmouth the senior administrators but are more worried about your personal finances than standing up for what is right. Shame on you all!

Oh the rants continue on. So much to say, so little time. It would be nice to see the feds swarm in and shut the doors on this scam of the community. Wonder how Polk's women will look in orange. Their cells could be decorated with MSU diploma paper. The ceiling decorated with the faces of the students they robbed all these years.

We love you and will pray for you to be okay every day. MSU has hurt many many people.

So many students are still going there and do not know about accreditation and related issues. Students should not have to worry about this...we reley on the school for this...it is a real shame.

Again, all the best to you and your family. We truly love you.
