5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I wouldn't change my school if I had too, I love it.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: the professors are amazing, always there for students. class registration is simple as pie and a complete walk through. the workload a somewhat difficult, but I am able to balance out school and work.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: the schooling I need for my career is a little pricey, but I won't complain. I have no idea what im doing and they are there completely for me. they do it all for me as they also teach me so that I can do it myself in the future.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: we are a small tech school, no sports or extra curricular activities involved. but there is plenty of student space and great labs for students that may not have access to computers at home.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I don't ever have problems connecting to the wireless while in class, I print while at home.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I honestly haven't taken any online courses yet myself, but from what I have heard b others that I know, they are great.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: its fast and easy, the staff is there to get you what you need. there is no extra classes that are needed, everything is included in tuition.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I didn't get to choose when my classes are taken, but I do have a great job that helps me out and works with my school schedule.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: goal oriented students trying to reach different goals that fit their personalities and life styles

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The nursing program is a two year program however that doesn't mean its any easier. I was able to transfer credits from a previous school which was awesome.

3 College Senior

Career Services: In the nursing programs I know students that have gotten job offers shortly after graduation.

1 College Junior

Student Body: This school I would say is ghetto. There are some decent people there but for the most part everyone walks around with tattoos, droopy pants, smelling of weed, talking loud and ignorant, cussing, the guys are constantly trying to flirt with girls. It just seems like a very fake generic college, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL people.

Academic Experience: I am taking the assistant nursing program, their classes are a joke at this school. The teachers do not actually "teach" instead they use projectors just to quickly read over notes. There are classes that akron institute will throw into your schedule that they say that you "need" that NO other school would have a person in this field take. The school is cheap and you do not receive as good of material as other colleges offer and have for their students.

Career Services: This school is nothing that they make themselves look. They are more worried that you are taking the classes so they get a check then if you are ready to go out there and start working at a serious job. I have been told once their so "strict" because if they are not then when students take the state board and too many fail they will get shut down. So instead I think that they fail you before you get that far so you get so frustrated and find a new school to go too.

Academic Flexibility: One of the biggest reason I chose this school over others in the area was the flexibility. I didn't have to quit my corporate job or find a way to re-balance my schedule to fit going to classes. I do my work according to my availability, whether that is at 11 o'clock at night, or 6 in the morning.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses are wonderful for those who are self motivated. If you don't need someone to babysit you, and remind you when your assignments are due, it's great. Especially nice for working adults and parents- it can be hard trying to find time in your day to go sit in a classroom (especially when you have children). Their online courses allow you to do your work when it's convenient for you.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a business major, and happy that my courses are focused on exactly what I need, and not a bunch of stuff that I don't. They plan your course load two semesters in advance, so you are never have to worry what is coming up next semester or if there will be room in a required class. At the end of you're degree there is an 8 week internship program designed to give you work experience in your desired field and help place you with possible employers.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Because this is a small school, it doesn't have the same on campus resources as some of the other nearby institutions. There is no athletic program, a small library, and limited campus activity. There is a computer center with more than ample access.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The staff is friendly and helpful. They want to put you in a program that works for you. As a single mom, full time employee and small business owner, I was worried how I would fit going back to school into my hectic schedule. Their online courses make it easy to do my work when it's convenient for me. The best part is, if I need help, I don't have to feel like I'm alone. The school offers free tutoring to all of their students, both traditional and online. The campus is small, with a very limited library, but with Summit County Library just a few miles away, it's not a big deal.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Online courses at Akron Institute of Herzing University are a lot of work with reading, watching presentations, doing the discussion topics with responses, and the weekly assignments. It is very manageable because you can access everything 24 hours a day 7 days a week. There is always technical assistance if you are having trouble with your computer.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body that makes up Akron Institute of Herzing University consists of people from all walks of life. It is a good mix of people that all have a lot to offer each other. I am a single mother that works part time then the person next to me is a young person right out of high school. We all are there for the same reason but we all come together collectively to make it through the programs.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Always Ask Questions – The education that I am receiving is worth it. I do not think the interest that I will acrue at the end of my education is accurate. The financial advisors always tell students to only take what they need to cover tuition. My financial status while in school is not very good. I need all the help that I can get. Accepting the excess funds from finacnial aid is helping me get through the hard times. I know that I should find alternative ways of making money, but with having a child and being a full- time student, it will be difficult. My main goal is to focus on school and to not let anything get on the way of graduating on time.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not yet had any online courses at mym school. I anticipate that it will be a different experience. I can think of a few pros and cons to taking courses online. A pro would be that I would not have to travel. It would definately save me time sine I always have to drop my daughter off at daycare before I go to shool. Another pro is that I can learn in my home, which is a very relaed environment for me. A con would be that I love the one on one attention I get from my professors. I don't think it is possible to get that same attention from a teacher online.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: the library is average and limited to resources only pertinent to their courses

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: Printing on Campus Is Limited – Although there are many computers and labs there is limited printing allowed and limited places to print from
