4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have had a very good experience at this school. Most teachers will do anything to get you where you need to be, however some teachers are extremely unorganized, making it hard to do the work provided.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Workload is good and workable. Professors are always ready to help you in any way possible and registration is very easy to do. Curriculum is average; not many times are offered to take a particular course.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most teachers are very flexible and let you decide your fate for the course. They understand work, weather, and child care issues, so they do their best to work around it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at this school. Some of my teachers can be a little too crazy and strict and my program (which is new this year) can be very unorganized. However, many of my teachers and classes have been outstandingly beneficial to me and my studies.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is very cheap and I most definitely get my money's worth. However, books are costly on campus (almost to an extreme). Financial aid sometimes can be a hassle; I transferred and they wouldn't allow my financial aid to transfer with my credits. After they took 2 weeks to relay this information to me, the deadline to submit financial aid information was too late.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Being an off-campus campus, many facilities are above average in display and convenience. There are many places to study and when the weather is warmer, there is a beautiful area behind campus that holds a pond, a path, and many peaceful, serene study areas. The advisors try to help in every way possible, but need to work on people skills. The campus life is vibrant and interactive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are a lot of campus resources available to me. We have a teaching and learning center where you can be a tutor or a tutee; you can also make up tests here. We have a technology center which works as a computer lab and technological help center for personal computers. Printing is available with a small fee. However, I think some of the workers could have better information to give and make a better effort to help a student in need.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are few campus activities in the winter-time. However, speeches and presentations are available for viewing. Once the weather gets warmer, the campus is much more involved with the students. The library is very useful and the librarians go above and beyond to help in any way. There is a gym available, but difficult to use because a certain crowd takes it over. The lounge area is a nice place to relax before or in between classes and many activities are held there.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It is difficult for me to learn while taking an online course. I took one in which the teacher was extremely interactive, but I also took one in which the teacher was never heard of expect to tell about assignments. Peer to peer interaction was always good because I could get feedback about an assignment or I could clarify expectations about an assignment. Workload was average (normal compared to an actual class) and wasn't too difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is a great amount of diversity in the school (financial, political, and ethnic). Most students dress casually and seem eager to learn about the subjects they are interested in.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: The educators at my school go above and beyond in order to help any student find a job, or pursue other options. They give you as much information as possible to help you make the best decision possible for you.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I had a really hard time with some professors because they weren't there to help the students, but other instructors were very helpful and supportive. Some of their curriculum didn't make much sense, but other parts were wonderful. Class registration can be difficult, but meeting with your advisor really helps with that. Workload can be high based on what you take, but you choose pretty much the amount you take. BGSU Firelands has excellent special study options with the Teaching and Learning Center. They help you study if you need it or set you up with a tutor. We don't have very many programs other than drama or art shows at our campus. I believe we have some basketball too.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I have not really seen many. The gym looks nice from through the windows. The "pit" -a student hangout place- is pretty nice, with some comfortable chairs. Although it could use some better outlets. The library is relatively small, but nice, with very helpful people. The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) is wonderful, with very helpful people including tutors. The TLC has computers and we also have a lab. There are computers placed in the hallways and main areas of the buildings, too. They just put in a study lounge, which is very nice, with many outlets, comfortable chairs, and it is very quiet.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I am usually able to work my class schedule around my personal schedule. Now that I am in my program though, I do not have any flexibility. Classes are only offered once a year, so I have to take them when they are offered no matter what my personal schedule may need.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I am getting is worth the expenses. I received most of my financial aid through outside awards, but did receive some from the college. I did learn the hard way how important it is to get the right forms in on time. What I wish was different was the assistance given. When I had problems with the online forms-which seemed to be the only way to go- I could not get ahold of anyone to help, and those that I talked to were unable to give any assistance.

3 College Student

Online Courses: I never wanted to have to take an online course. I had heard that the system was difficult to operate, the classes were harder, and the teachers cared less. You get used to the system, but the classes are more difficult. You really lose the lecture portion of the class. The teachers are some of the most accessible and caring I have taken. They really love responding to your work.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: I am a post-secondary High School Student taking all of my classes at Firelands for the past 2 years. The teachers have all been fantastic, except for some of the sattelite classes I have taken at local high schools. The classes are flexible, class sizes are relatively small, and they can easily be all major-related. The only issue is that the classes seem to be at a lower level than some of the more selective universities.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body is just kinda bland. A majority of students are white. Some are older, some are college age and some are in between. Skill levels of the students here vary. I've seen some classmates, in GSW 1110, whose sentences are poor and remind me of a third grade student.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The gym here is just barely the size of a standard basketball court. The weight room is about closet size. The Student Center and library are tiny, but helpful. Campus activities are very limited and often get the shaft from main campus activities.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There is nothing really unique about this place and it feels just like high school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are maybe 15 computers in the computer lab. Network speed is really slow. Constant technological errors when trying to turn work in online.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I would've given an A+, but there was a span of 2 weeks where there was a hidden hold on my account and the Office of Financial Aid didn't know what was going on. Other than that they give great financial aid and tuition cost is really low.

2 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: They did not help me at all I did all the work myself

1 College Freshman

Career Services: I feel they do not meet the needs of all the students such as only having office hours during the day when students also attend classes at night due to working during the day

3 College Freshman

Student Body: most of the students I have gotten to know are full time parents and work as well as school lots of the students are single parents of small children and they encourage me to continue as I have small children as well.
