He does understand my position, and my hatred. But he stuck by me and never abused his position as staff, (except to take a couple of my BCA friends to my hometown to watch me play football, which was what I dreamed of and talked about for 2.5 years, and according to CEDU, that was a little bit out of agreement) One of the friends that came down hung himself instead of going to prison, He never got to know what living free meant, but he was able to see me doing what I loved, and for that I will always be grateful to Dave."

To start off I would like to say that I never felt like attending cedu affects me still today. I pretty much put it past me and went on to bigger and better things.  

I felt that college was a bit harder than it should have been due to the poor academics there.  I of course chose to go into a major that was something I was interested in (Electrical Engineering) and of course cedu's academic program in no way shape or form prepared me for what was required.  Fortunatly school never was difficult to me so I picked things up rather quickly and did quite well (if you dont count first quarter freshman year).    

I also don't feel like I was treated terribly bad there.  I saw a lot of stuff that was messed up and quite frankly completely innapropriate for the type of program they are.  This included a lot of staff members that I now know were not qualified for that type of work.  Numerous ones even admitted they had no experience.  Some staff though I felt like they generally wanted to help, which leads me to my first story.

When i first got to BCA in september 95 or whenever I was placed on the Wolf Team headed up by a guy I came to respect (didn't care to much for him in the beginning though).  As time went by there, maybe almost a year or so, it became apparent that he was one of the few staff that really cared about what was going on.  There were a lot of staff members that acted as if they got off on getting angry at kids.  I remember a guy that left shortly after I got there (a few months or so).  He was a psychologist there and he was known for going berserk in raps, I mean jumping up out of his chair and yelling at the top of his lungs at you all sorts of profanity and then going back to being calm.  It gave the appearance of total fakeness, he wasnt yelling at you because he cares, it was his systematic way of holding these rap sessions.  I don't recall ever being the brunt of his out bursts but based on this I could tell he was a dick and I didn't like him.  Anyway back to the point.  My team leader was a great guy and at this point I could sense the tension between him and the staff members.  A lot of the people on the wolf team were my friends and we all kind of came from the same genre of thuggish acting punk kids.  I guess dealing with the hard cases was his specialty because there was a lot of us knuckleheads on his team.  But later I got the gist that they (other staff and administration) were getting on him for being "too lax" with us.  He let us get away with being kids and goofing off but we respected him and stayed in line (for the most part) becausae he bothered to earn our respect unlike other staff who demanded it because they can power trip on you and yell more profanity at you than 10 episodes of def comedy jam.  But to summarize things one day he didn't show up to work and we were of course suspicios due to the circumstances of what was going on with him and the "system" (those were dr evil quotation marks by the way) at the time.  They of course told us that they came to a "mutual agreement" that it was his time to move on (gee sounds a lot like how they do it in corp america right? trust me, I work in it).  They then split us all up into different teams and had house raps to talk about all the wonderful stuff and things.  I later approached a staff on the old team about the fact that i know he was fired, of course all I got in return was a blank stare proving I was right.  But the moral of the story was that a good guy was fired from there with the total situation being blatantly honest to everyone (students and staff) because he didn't fit the corrupted mold they had going on there, only to leave the staff that really needed to take a hike able to move up in the chain of command.

Shortly after this incident I was transfered to RMA..... /SARCASM ON gee, sure didn't see that one comin'/SARCASM OFF

Enough typing for now, the way-back machine needs a rest.

By the way, if anyone wants to hear stories or has questions, give me a nudge and I will throw down some posts.

I went to BCA from 95 til 97 and RMA from 97 to 98.

I graduated the program.

Went to college, graduated, and now work for a living.

All that said and done, I still do not have many nice words to say about the schools.
