4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Our program of study is very challenging. The instructors are extremely helpful with everything that we study and if we are struggling they never hesitate to help us. It is very hard to keep up with our workload and the standards that we have to uphold are very high. A lot of hard work and dedication is required to succeed in this program.

Academic Experience: The registration process is easy and the staff is very helpful. The curriculum is easy to follow and is very accessible to anyone interested in the program. The workload is tough and very time consuming and the amount of studying feels endless.

Academic Experience: As far as my school goes, I do know that there are different groups/clubs and sports that one can attend while going to ACM. When it comes to the workload, it's pretty fair, I think. I had homework almost every time after leaving a class, but it was never anything that took more than a couple hours at the most to complete & it wasn't too hard to do either. The curriculum challenges your intellectual abilities without it having to be challening, if that makes sense. The teachers are very supportive & and truly care about the students' educations & futures.

Academic Experience: I've already described the teachers, workload & curriculum above. The registration process is fairly easy and simple; However, I have recently ran into one issue that I've had, but necessarily with the Registration Office, per say. My issue is with my financial aid, and the fact that I cannot even contact someone about it until the 6th of Janurary, and the dealine on my issue is also the 6th of January, so now I'm not even sure if I'm going to be able to resolve it in time for the upcoming semester, and I've already registered for it and paid my fee, so I'm not too happy about that. As for the study options, I've never had to use them, but I've heard that they're good. They're free and they're pretty effective from what I understand.

Academic Experience: the early childhood education program is great here. the first year I received my teaching badge and took courses that delt with my career. The program also provides internships and provides a lot of experience working with kids. the first semester starts you out with working with kids which is great for experience. It also has a relationship with Frostburg State which offers the other half of the program.
