2 College Senior

Online Courses: No online courses were offered.Only in order to make up for a class.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The fact that I have the opportunity to pursue a career I have been wanting to pursue (for a very long time), I am obviously stoked. There aren't that many other students in my program and I take advantage of it by spending as much time with the teachers as I can. I go to school with other healthcare majors (nursing, dental hygiene, etc.), so for me, being in massage therapy is unique because it is a program slightly tangent to the medical field.
Also, I get lots of practice massaging my fellow college mates. Apparently, tense muscles run rampant in medical students. How ironic. ;)

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Compared to other colleges I've attended, academics at my college are average.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: (My) traditional classroom experience had no online courses, so I think the whole idea is great. My program is a certificate program; but I have the option to obtain an Associate's degree in my major by attending online classes. This is very convenient for me since I work, too.
Professor/student relationships tend to be really good because the classes are smaller so one on one attention is maximised.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Far superior to any other college I've attended. The courses that are taught ready the student for the workplace. The last couple months of the program is dedicated to externships that the college arranges for each student. The student accepts the job, completes the hours, completes the program, obtains the certificate, and enters the workplace. Many times, the place where the externship was completed is a starting job for the new graduate.
During the externship, the career centre helps the student build a resume.
I've never known anything like it! :D

Campus Resources: Well, the library is quite small but that's what you would expect on a small campus. The literature seems to be everything I need, though, and there are a couple of computer labs and study areas.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I bring my tablet to school and it connects to wi-fi easily. There are always plenty of computers available to use and the printers are in good working order.

5 College Senior

Student Body: When you look for the definition of "It's all good", you see a map of the Silicon Valley and the SF Bay Area in California.
Diversity of every kind *plus* more is accepted. 'Nuff said! :D

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The friendliness and approachability of the staff is unmatched. I have been to a few colleges and this is the first one where I have been given sincere positive reinforcement. The faculty and staff really care about their students' success and treat everyone equally. Yay!

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I 'make too much money' to receive federal aid so I've had to take out a couple of loans. One loan I need to start paying on on the first day of class (albeit it's quite a small amount).
One thing I don't have to worry about though is to repeat financial agreements again since I am in a 9 month certificate program, there are no semesters, quarters, etc. There was 1 bottom line fee, and it took one time to apply for it and agree to it.
I still have to pay for it though... :S

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I would have to say that the classes are very flexible in that there are morning, afternoon, and evening classes. My class is 4 hours, 4 days a week; allowing me to continue working. It's very convenient for me.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The first thing that comes to mind is the small classrooms and campus. The smaller classes create more one on one time between the teacher and student, which is very effective in learning the necessary materials for success. The smaller campus creates a welcome, relaxed environment that suppresses intimidation that new students may feel when starting at a new college. The geographic location of the college is a very good choice in that it is in a major city (all necessities are at the fingertips) but not downtown. It has more of a serene country feel that induces clear-minded, serious continuing education; as opposed to a continuous nightlife, frat/sorority club dominating, high crime rate college town. :)

5 College Senior

Career Services: This school offers externships and that will really help you continue your career.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My schedule is very convenient for me because I am not a morning person and they have variety of times to attend school so there is no excuse not to go to school.
