Regency sucks. I have been wanting to do hair since I was little. I have considered doing other things and I still do, but I love doing hair and nails. I thought Regency looked like a good school to go to and I felt like after meeting with the campus manager that the teachers really cared about everyone succeeding, but I was very wrong. There is one teacher at the Aurora-Naperville campus that I can say complete good things about, another teacher who I learned from but has no business teaching if she can't get her attitude right, and the other teacher picks her favorites. No one ever explained to me how you are supposed to go about doing time adjustments so the entire time I thought I was getting credit for my hours that I had forgotten to clock out for and when I called my advisor, talked to the educator, AND my campus manager they all explained to me that nothing could be done. If they can't do anything who can.. because no one seemed to be able to answer that for me. Also, I missed a couple of tests, and I know I did, so I made them up. I took my 320 twice, because I missed 6 too many the first time, and the second time I only missed 5. You are not allowed to take the 320 unless EVERYTHING is taken care of (tests, model days, etc), well after I took my 320 I was informed that I did not take 2 tests, did not pass 1, and "didn't take" some other tests.. funny how one of the students seen me in the office taking one of those tests I "didn't take". I was furious and made my mind up that I would not retake those tests because it was such bs lies. I decided later that I would just take them because of how excited I was to get on to the floor. I asked my campus manager to get the study guides for me and she said that would be fine. I never got them. I never got them so then I asked another head person to get me the study guides and she told me she would tell the campus manager when she got in. I didn't get them, so I went and talked to the campus manager who told me no one informed her that I had asked for them again, I still didn't get them. I asked an educator who told me to ask the campus manager... anyone see something wrong with this?
On top of this I was told to go into the campus to sign these papers so corporate would be able to talk to my mom, and everytime I've gone in they haven't had the paper.. bs.
They totally crushed my dreams of going into this business, don't let it happen to you!

    That is what they do with everyone that has those issues. I am at a different campus and it happens exactly the same way. One day a student sprayed citrus in another's eyes, another has to be walked to their car by classmates. No help or support from the campus managers or educators I have been to a few colleges and secondary type schools, Regency is where I look over my shoulder. Good luck
