5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Student Center Is Awesome – I love the new Student Center. It is very comfortable to sit and work on homework or just relax for a while. I like that the tutoring, cafeteria, bookstore, library etc are all in one building

1 College Senior

Online Courses: Communication a Problem – I have found that more then one online instructor will take sometimes days if at all to respond to emails. Many times the emails will be about questions about assignments, so I will either not get the assignment done, or just do it without assistance. They need to respond within 24 hours. If they are going to do online, they need to be available online

3 College Senior

Career Services: Could Use Some Work – I am a returning alumni and have applied for work at the college, but have never been interviewed. The career center seemed to be more for the high school student coming into the college and not the person in transition.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Very Diverse School – There are a lot of non-traditional students. I like this as these students take their education seriously. This is very different from the University environment were students are mostly out of high school and make excuses for their attendance and progress.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Great Program – I like the instructors, and the advising staff. The financial aid department is slow and do not seem to care that a student receives their funding in a timely manner.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: To get tuters at aims is very difficult. All tutors are located in Greeley wich is a little far from our school. But when they try to hire tutors they put all of there effort to het a tutor.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: At Aims they have a program called camp. camp is for freshmans that need help for there first school year of college. They are amazing people. they do many activities and field trips. You meet alot of new friends. Basically camp is this big family that help you throughout your school year and make college seem so much fun.

Campus Resources: Small Classes – My school has very small class sizes. It serves as an opportunity for the professor and the student to get to know each other on a one on one level. By having this, I find it much easier to get the grades I am shooting for in each class.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have enjoyed my time at Aims. The class sizes are small and it is a good learning environment. Most of the teachers are really well rounded, but I have a one or two did not do too wonderful of a job. It is very cheap and I love that about it. I plan to transfer to a 4-year university to continue with my education. I am fairly happy with my school experience.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Great Aid If You Make It – process takes alot of time if submitted late or after the deadline, but if submitted on time, then aid is available the first day of classes. so that is good.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: aims c.c. has a very friendly environment and all facility members and professors are able to treat me with respect and in good manner. they hold a lot of work shops and events, i dont attend all but create great experiences for students and the community

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus resources in my opinion are excellent. They have everything in the college center. They have a pretty big computer lab which is never full so you know you will always have somewhere to go. Printing on campus is pretty easy, except you have to pay like 5 cents a paper.
Network reliability and speed is great. Has never been slow to me. They also have wireless access. I'm not to sure if you can get a personal computer though.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexibility – There is a lot of diversity in my classrooms. People from all over actually. Most teachers are pretty great, well the ones that I have had so far. Some teachers though, do not really help a student out. That's what I really need sometimes.
Frustrations I have had are probably not enough help from teachers.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Limited Choices – I am an accounting major planning to switch to business. Some of the books required for the classes are made by aims as far as my understanding goes from what the book store has told me. These books are only offered new and at an expensive price. Some of the courses I have taken have had alot of work for what should be a simple class. Other courses have had little work for what should be a foundation course for other classes.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Do Everything Early – The financial aid process is long and tiring. Getting your financial aid figured out early is a must since the process can take a very long time. It is important to get everything in order as soon as possible since it can take 7-12 weeks for financial aid imformation to be processed. It is very discouraging for first time students to wait that long for a check since books for classes are needed right away.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: You Get Out What You Put Into It. This community college can be a great starting point for your college education. For the most part you will get what you put into it. The majority of the teachers are willing to go out of there way to help a student if he or she has showed that she wants to learn. The campus does not have alot to offer as far as extra activities but, it is a small community college that is affordable.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Easy If You Live in Northern Colorado- More Difficult to Telecommute.. I live 50 miles away from the nearest campus so my tues/thursday classes involve a tedious commute, and I would have preferred to take them online, if they had they been offered. I have found that arranging schedules to fit a full time work life is relatively easy. Now that I am on my last few required classes before transferring, I found the scheduling conflicts more apparent. If you live near Loveland and Greeley, it's easy to fit all your required classes into your schedule. There is a variety of meeting times, so it's difficult to try to conform to just 2 days a week. Also, it's sometimes hard to reach anyone by phone or email during the busy times. I had the worst experience trying to figure out financial aid for Summer semester, but all other offices seem friendly and efficient.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Good Start for the Working College Student.. I enrolled with Aims as a 2 time community college drop out. Out of high school, I burdened myself with things like car loans and horses, so that budgeting for school was nearly immpossible. With their entrance tests that place you in your learning group and 25% down payments that you can finance through the semester, it makes it a good alternative for people trying to figure out how to make it through the first few years of college, when youre busy learning stuff that can't constitute a raise. Now that I am almost eligible to graduate from here with an associates, Ive decided to go directly on to CSU. Now that I have my business core classes completed with nights and online classes, my resume looks more promising for the entry level accounting jobs that I am applying for. The only issue I can report is a slight effeciancy problem with their computer systems or office management. It seems that each semester I run into some sort of minor paperwork mishap involving delayed FAFSA results, weird bookstore return policies, slow communication with emailing the main branch or driving long distances to Greeley to get answers since the other campuses lack decision making staff. Other than that, I have gotten along well with all of my instructors. Given the option, I would gladly re-do my first 2 years at Aims.

Campus Resources: Photo Shop – This class in the beggining was very diffficult and then at the end of the semester i was able to accomplish very cool things.

5 College Senior

Career Services: While I haven't graduated as of yet I do know students that have and they have express that the process is very easy. Many are not working at careers that they were able to get with help from the career cenbter and job fairs. I too believe that my road to graduation will be just as easy and travel to my next destination of continuing my education trip.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My Educational Trip – During my time to Aims Community College there have been many changes. A lot of registration and information has been put on-line. I am sort of old fashion and like to talk to a person, and there are people available but have adjusted and have learned how to get around a computer. The instructors are really pleasent to be around and I have kept in contact with even the ones I had at the beginning of my educational trip. I will admit there have been some bumps in the road. One year there was a problem with my financial aid and had to take a semester off to fix the problem. The financial department helped walk me through the process of resolving the issue. I will also admit that I have had to repeat some classes but I was never made to feel that I was stupid or dumb because I just didn't get it. This trip has been a learning process as a whole not just to get my associated degree. I am looking forward to moving on toward earning my bachalor degree in education.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The campus is situtated in the city of Greeley. Access to the college is very easy through three differen location. Each building is named and the names are visible to everyone, so finding a class is very simple. The instructors are there to teach you the subject but the are human too and will listen to any difficulties that student sometimes have when attending college. I love the campus in the spring. There are many places that landscaping has incorpated flower with the natural terrain. The college makes is possible for students with all types of learning disablities to attend and offers classes both during the day and evening. Aims has a tutoring center that is high on my list of assistance and very much needed. I would encourage anyone wanting to go back to school to check out Aims Community College before they committ themselves to other types of learning.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Network Hassles With Personal Computers – I have tried using my laptop and my tablet on the schools network, and I have a really hard time connecting, which is an inconvenience to me trying to work on things that I have saved to my computer. Printing is also an issue too, they charge five cents per page and I have to log in to their computers to use their program to print.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good school, flexible programs including online and night classes, classes at multiple campuses available, teachers seem proficient in their area. This is a small CC but it gets the job done and is not too expensive

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I think more funds could be put into the library and what books you can check out. I have actually used the Denver Public Library to find some of my books. The Main campus is nice, plus there is plenty of organizations that one can join.
