I was excited to be accepted by this school for the criminal justice program. Steve Frake was my counselor and was very hard working and sincere.
However, when I checked out the president of the school, Dr. Alan Drimmer, I was horrified to find that he was involved with the surveillance application department of the the very inept and corrupt Homeland Security office. I immediately withdrew my application. Mr. Frake was disappointed as was to be expected, and wanted to know what changed my mind concerning enrollment. I mentioned Dr. Drimmer's affiliation with Homeland Security and Mr. Frake just could not understand what I was saying. I was further horrified and annoyed that AIU seems to be a very conservative right wing school. I ended the conversation by saying I'd lost interest but if I change my mind, I will call back.
I received a call from Bradley Koyak within the hour, he was an administrative clerk of some sort. You would have thought I'd taken an egg out of a basket that he'd counted on. He was absolutely put out with me, demanding to know why I'd changed my mind so that I could get "back on track." Not having any patience with someone so devoured by the corporate demons advocating this sort of behavior that had employed him, I told this representative of a conservative and hateful machine that he wasn't listening to me and that I was hanging up.
They called repeatedly, wore out my caller ID. After about a dozen calls I realized the wisdom of my decision.
I wanted to work with at-risk kids as a parole officer with a criminal justice degree. I wanted to serve people, not a corrupt machine. I'm still interested in restoring the integrity of this country, not making another dollar for the modern day fascism created by the sleepy heads of the conservative right-wing. I read a book, "Men are Not Cost Effective," by June Stephenson, PHD. I highly recommend it to anyone confronted with immature, aggressive men.
