Academic Experience: To have been accepted into the Nursing program I feel proud of my self because they have such an amazing program.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors seem to work well for technical ed students that already have some field experience but when it comes to students that are new to everything. Books, studying, and tutoring is almost ineffective because of the fact that they do not consider that you do not know or understand everything that they are trying to have you do. It is a struggle to keep up no matter how hard I try and the professors know but do not really know how or if they can help. They have years of experience and do not seem to recall that some have very little idea of what they are being taught.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The classes seem to be very scattered since there is a lot of learning to do in industry but they cram it all in such short sessions that it only scratches the surface of the many things that may be encountered out on the field. It still feels to much like traditional class work to feel like technical education.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I am not sure how classes can be flexible. Either you get points for showing up or you don't and even letting them know you will not make it ahead of time will not matter unless you spend all of your time getting class work done ahead of time. No makeups if you miss tests or quizzes and only partial credit for work you missed an a day you are absent. It can also be tough since most teachers are hard to track down at times.

4 College Senior

Student Body: There is a large amount of diversity when it comes to this college when it comes to race and age, but at the campus I go to there is less women on campus. It actually seems better for me though since men are easier for me to get along with. I have never heard of anyone facing challenges getting accepted by others other than people who are just out of high school that try to make new friends, but most of them still have their old high school click. It is much easier to make friends with older people than younger ones. It also makes it more challenging to get to know them better since they are older and already have families to worry about.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The major reason for this choice in school was for the close location and the cost being less than most schools. The involvement of the students and teachers could use improvement. If money and travel was less of an issue for me I would have gone somewhere different and most likely even majored in something else. Hopefully learning technical skills will pay off in the long run.

3 College Senior

Career Services: The career center has helpful resume building and mock interviews to help students but it does not help in actually getting a job for students that have never worked before. It seems like a major problem for a lot of peers and no one knows how to solve it since inexperienced workers are not desired and often not even given a chance just because of the fact that people with enough interview skills have already worked before.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The best part of the campus is the housing even though I do not live on campus. Some of the labs have more than others when it comes to equipment and projects. The technical education does have partnerships with employment companies that comes in handy for people that are not sure where to look. The school does not really seem to have many students that spend time socializing since most of them have to work and maintain their grades. The school seems pretty average.

1 College Senior

Online Courses: The majority of my peers agree that what needs most improvement is online courses. There is no personal interaction with other students or the professor whats so ever. Almost every semester someone has had to email the professors multiple times for either not giving assignments or not keeping up with grading them. The workload is often too much for most students to keep up with in hybrid classes when it comes to the online courses.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Since the campus for technical education is at a different location than the main campus, the most inconvenient part is traveling to different campuses to get books, financial aid, etc. Campus activities are not big on the campus I attend but there are some changes that are taking place. One example is trying to get the woman to interact with each other by creating a club since there is a large difference between the number of men to women attending.
