    The Nightmare of Dealing with Vaccinations Health Forms at SGU

    In previous terms I had friends who kept telling me about their frustration dealing with
    getting the vaccinations Health Form approved. They told me it was a lot of rigmarole, with little explanation, and that there was someone named Susan Conway who came to the island every few months to help and provide information. However, when she did come to island they told me he had trouble tracking her down to ask a few questions.
    So now in Term 5 I am experiencing the same thing. At her mandatory lecture, Susan Conway said she would be available "in the morning" every day this week, but I didn't remember her stating the location. I woke up early , eager to take the bull by the horns and get some questions answered. I went to the Dean of Sciences but they did not know where she or Leslie Marino was located.I went to Brown Hall and they directed me to the Clinic. I went to the Clinic and they said they had no idea where Leslie Marino and Susan Conway were located. A student in line behind, seeking to assuage my frustration, told me to go to SuperDorm floor 4. I went there and it looked like dorm rooms. I went up a floor to the Clinicals Department and they told me they had never heard of Leslie Marino or Susan Conway, and that students kept coming to their Department, wanting to get vaccinations-related questions answered, only to leave empty-handed. They called around to various administrators and none of them could locate either of the two women.
    I got a message from an administrator I had talked to earlier that Superdorm floor 6 was the place to go, but surprise, surprise, when I went there the next day
    no one knew where the two women were located or where Health Requirement form issues were dealt with.
    It was starting to feel like a Twilight Zone episode.
    When I went to Small Group to talk to other students told me they were getting the same treatment...
    Seriously, can't something be done to facilitate getting the Vaccinations Health form out of the way. Students work hard to get this
    stuff done and pay a lot of money only to get the runaround in Term 5. Can't SGU do better than this? I have had some strange experiences
    here dealing with the bureaucracy but this one takes the cake.
    P.S. Ms. Conway made the unusual request of "no video" for her lecture then was rude to people when she spoke. What exactly is going on with this person?
    P.P.S. Oh, okay, now I don't feel so bad for speaking out. I notice from old posts she's been causing people grief at SGU since at least 2007. Sigh.

    Your issue is only just one....read my post "SGU Confessions" or "Dismissed from "SGU grenada Nursing program". They are terrible and don't like to be told so. I don't even know if bureaucracy is the word to describe them. Hope you have better luck with your situation!!

    Thanks for your input. There are a lot of sycophants who will support the school on everything, even when there
    are blatant problems. I notice Caribbean schools let you evaluate lecturers each term (in fact it's mandatory) but when it
    comes to more administrative or bureaucratic protocols students have no voice. To be fair, SGU has some strong points, the most important of which is the actual education, or providing the ability to repeat a class with the Credit Remediation. On the other hand, there are some bureaucrats who have been associated with SGU so long it appears they are accountable to no one and do a lousy job at what they are doing.

    We'll see what's next in store for the school.

    psychopaths indeed - i hv learnt that the Nursing Chair is now telling the year 1 students (and God knows who else) that im crazy and needed psych dept in SGU. For the record, I am not crazy and i never needed psych for all d frustration they caused me. As my student collegue said, it takes one to know one. So if she saying im crazy then she must be twice as much bcoz they hv no record of me needing or receiving psych trtmt.....AND I will never [ever] stoop so low!!

    You are absolutely right - the education is good but the level of crap from those that don't like to be told is outrageous. They mess you up with their nonsense and hv no apologies for their wrongs. They get annoyed when they can't wrap u up around their little finger, which is what happened to me. I believe redundancy is what most of them need. Those 'mandatory' evals need to be for the DOS office and each deparment as well bcoz alot can be said about them. They tend to work around friends and family so they are all very protective of their own rubbish in that place!
