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
