    Unhappy SGU Confessions

    Hi I was a student at SGU Grenada in 2019 until their DOS office recently kicked me out of my program.

    It started with the Chair of the department giving me wrong information to register, and when I did what I was told, her executive secretary had a very nasty tone about it, in the presence of others in the office. A few weeks later, I foolishly emailed the secretary to tell her about her manners and the Chair of the department escalated to the DOS office, without sitting with me to discuss it first.

    The DOS office scheduled me for meetings without consulting my schedule and expected me to show up, even when I was home sick and had to work. Mind you, I didn't get any scholarships and I had no financial help or means to get a loan so I needed to work for food, etc. I informed them of all the above but that was completely ignored because the "officials" in that DOS office seemed to figure they were too "official" to listen to anything I had to say. My position as TA at the school was also stripped from me because I was accused of "chronic" lack of attendance to their meetings. I was accused of many things, including reading my emails when home sick with an expired SGU password for accessing my account. I tried to be very diplomatic in my writing but I was also told, by DOS official and my department Chair, that my use of the word "convenient", "unethical", "uncouth" etc. was disrespectful.

    The DOS asked me to provide an apology, and I provided four (4) apologies, for the sake of peace, but they were all ignored. Mind you, one apology was written by an SGU supervisor and an SGU faculty with a Doctorate's degree. They gave me hell about poor communication, so I suppose the apologies from the supervisor and faculty member was also poor. SGU has their own court system and their lawyer slammed me with all sorts of violations, including falsifying university documents. When the panel asked the Chair of my department if she had signed my registration form, she said a very gruff "no", even though her signature is on the form in the registrar's office. With God, I was found not guilty for forgery!

    During detention sittings with my probation officer, I tried to ask her some questions about our previous discussions but she got red in the face and dismissed me from her office. One of the questions asked: "Why would you say that Dr. .... does not care when she is supposed to care"? I also asked a separate official if was "supposed to leave my sick bed to attend those meetings" and she didn't respond. My probation letter said to email DOS if I had any questions but when I did that their lawyer created a string of violations about that. I also emailed the new Dean of SAS to ask him a question and to help him find the evidence he was looking for about my program but that also turned out to be a violation. The provost and other higher heads had no response to my emails and the new ombudsman said she has no power to do anything other than give me advice. Their lawyer also referred to me and my sentiments as "rat hole" and the panel members had nothing to say to that. I am still wondering which gov't is SGU bigger than!!

    I have evidence to show that the final decision was made before the 2nd hearing was called and that is blatant discrimination - my account has a learning mgmt system lock hold that still says "DO NOTTTTT REMOVE" so I can't see my grades or request my transcript. Based on confessions from one of my cohort and from other students, SGU only have respect and humility for students with rich backgrounds - students with parents who are politicians, doctors, diplomats, etc. An esteemed member of society told me that "SGU is bigger than the government" because "they are not nice" and "you are not wrong but they just feel you should not tell them anything because you are too much in their face".

    I asked SGU for an apology but instead I got a whole lot of negative attitude, probation, a detention officer, 2 court cases and dismissal from my program (which I fought to enter into for many, many years) and from the university. One is ever open to correction and understands the need for discipline and rules but if SGU staff can't exemplify ethics and professionalism to students then how can they slam students from same?? I can't believe that this type of rubbish is happening at Univeristy level in this 2019 - God is watching them!!

    I rest my case!!

    I do not know Atlantoaxial at all. Just can see where they were coming from.

    I currently am an SGU student and typically if you give respect to the people you are dealing with you get it in return in my experience. I solely based my response off of the way you have portrayed yourself in this public forum and nothing else. As cakepops said, Since SGU did not work out for you, why not find a different program to attend?

    Very wise answer Dopple54 regarding respect.....

    Respect is something I like to give bcoz it is something I value the most. However, if you or anyone else disrespect me, the lengths at which I will go to straighten that out is unimaginable.....That Atlantoaxial initiated the disrespect (I don't hear u sayin anything about that) so it got what it deserved.....Don't Disrespect Me!!.....That is why SGU is now under serious investigation because they too bloody disrespectful....Quite a few of their other nursing students has since dropped out due to the same issue of respect, amongst other things.

    Your question is invalid bcoz I hv already answered it in my response to Cakepops....hv a blessed life!!
