2 College Sophomore

Student Body: Almost impossible to make friends. Seems like people are not there with the intention to make friends.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Councilors are no help in figuring out what classes a student should take for what they are intending to do.

Campus Resources: The library is the best feature of this campus.

Student Body: The student body has led to many great friendships and people to learn from in my experiences. At this college, many students are relatively local but come from a variety of backgrounds. Some are studying to expand on their education, others are transferring or changing careers. I have found some diversity however based on the size of the college not as much diversity as in some other places.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aide is excellent. The process is easy and when accepting a scholarship there have been no questions asked. When paying for classes, the process is quick and easy. There are several payment plans available for a very small fee that is well worth it. The value of education matches that of courses others may pay four times as much for. The courses transfer and it is encouraged to be involved in transfer programs.

Overall Experience: I would choose this college again in the future. It is an excellent place to launch an adult education. There are many core classes offered and at great prices. The curriculum matches that of four year schools. Some of my favorite experiences involve club involvements and stretching my learning curve.

Academic Flexibility: This college offers evening and online courses to an extent. They are extremely convenient for scheduling. However, it would be nicer if more were offered. For example, to take Calculus 2, there are only morning offerings for the upcoming summer, fall and spring semesters. This makes it very difficult to take this course, which is a prerequisite for others. Every evening class that I have taken has been full, so I would imagine more evening or online classes would be used. Transferring credits has been very easy in the past.

Campus Resources: Campus resources are quite extensive and have grown over time. There is a gym on campus available for use. Athletically, the college would greatly benefit from a track if space allowed. The student center is large and there are always students studying. The tutors are often openly offering assistance and are very friendly. The library is updated and includes a wide variety of reading material. Aesthetically, the campus is kept tidy and clean. There is art work and plant life to provide a positive environment.

Facilities: This school has a great reputation for the nursing program. There are many other programs in math and science fields to choose from as well as theatre and arts programs and others. The social scene is quite friendly. There are many clubs and activities to participate in. The campus life includes enough to keep someone busy and involved. There are many study spaces that are encouraged for use and outdoor seating areas near the cafeteria that are very nice. One of my favorite aspects of the school are the study abroad opportunities.

Academic Experience: I am currently involved in a transfer program at my school. Nearly all of the courses I am involved in will transfer to another college without much of a hassle. Uniquely, we get to partner up with other schools in the area in order to have more class options at the same cost. The workload can vary depending on the subject matter, however it tends to be moderately heavy. All classes and faculty I am involved with pertain to math and science. I think that I have built a strong background in these areas. The lab facilities are equipped with enough materials to complete labs. The curriculum includes enough to get to a good point in the sciences and meets expectations for a two year school. Of course it would be nice to see more of a variety however.

Academic Experience: Academically my school performs well. The professors are professional and keep communication open with all students. The curriculum of courses aligns well with other schools in the area. The registration process is easy, and it is not complicated to sign up for, cancel or change courses. Enrolling in their payment plan is easy as well and is a nice option to have. The workload of classes is about the same overall. Some courses are harder than others depending on what sticks well based on personal study habits. It would be nice to see more night class and online options. While there are some, it is hard to map out a schedule in upper level courses and work during the day at the same time. There are many clubs and programs to choose from, although more growth would allow for more academic options.

Career Services: The career center is easily accessible and is available for anyone. They often send out emails to give word of upcoming career events on campus. There are pamphlets of information outside of the office to invite students in. The career service is also available for alumni to use. I have used it before and found that there are options for many different interests and many opportunities for student jobs present themselves that can continue into post-grad. Career services is a tool that I can keep in mind during my job searches after college.

Online Courses: Online courses in my experiences have been well structured and assignments are given with clarity. Most online courses begin with an introduction where all students are required to give a statement about themselves to include their interests and reasons for taking the course. The workload is often less than traditional courses because time is used more efficiently. With online courses, students can focus on areas of peak interest and time is not wasted for reasons such as driving. The registration process is the same for traditional classes, as the same process is used to set up communication for all courses. The professors are easy to communicate with and respond within reason. The online classes differ from the traditional classroom experiences as it is the responsibility of the student to allow enough time for studies.

Career Services: The two times that I sought help from the post-grad departments was when I was looking at schools to transfer to and when I needed help creating a job resume. The counselor that I worked with on transfers was very helpful and gave me useful information and tips. The career center is awesome and the person I worked with to draft my resume was very helpful and I was able to get a job using that resume!

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Going to school has been very convenient for me because I was able to go to all my classes and do all of my work and very rarely did it ever get in the way of anything else I was trying to or wanted to do. I was also able to maintain a social life and do other things in addition o my courses and workload.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: In my opinion, there is a good amount of diversity within my school's student body. It is not comprised so heavily of one group that I felt like there was no diversity at all but not so heavily diverse that I felt like there was no one else like me that I could relate to due to religious, social or ethnic differences.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The school offers a large amount of resources including a library with books, articles and magazines that I use for pleasure reading but also books and articles, etc. that I used to complete assignments and do research. I also used the various computer labs in classes but also outside of classes to do research, work on assignments, print things and check my grades. The biggest bonus however, was that every print job was already paid for by the school so I never had to pay for a print job!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The main computer lab is in the library and fills up very quickly but there are also other labs around the campus. However, classes are often held in those rooms. I brought my own personal laptop on several occasions and was able to connect to the internet and do my work very effectively. As mentioned above, I never had to pay for printing which was very nice and I could use both their black and color printer whenever I needed to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed each year that I have been a student there and have made friends and memories that will last a lifetime. I have also gotten a great education that has prepared me to apply for and be accepted for a job in sales and also to continue my education further and get my degree in the future.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Carroll Community College has a very prominent sense of community and from the minute I started classes, I felt like I was a part of the college "family". That feeling just increased the second year as I met more people and came in contact with more faculty. I knew that no matter what, there was always something to do, someone to talk with and a place where I could go and do work or just relax and interact with others.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I feel that the teachers who taught online classes did a good job in communicating with students and in helping students with assignments or questions. I personally do better in a classroom setting where the information is more tangible to me so if I have the option of an in- classroom class or an online one in the future, I would choose the in- classroom one.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I feel that I have gained the knowledge that I need to continue to pursue my bachelor's degree elsewhere. I also feel that if I were to change my plans, the knowledge that I have already gained would be enough to assist me in getting a job in my intended career field and performing that job well.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The school offered a wide variety of classes that fit into my degree program but that also interested me. I was also able to find the resources and help that I needed to assist in my studies relatively easily.

4 College Senior

Student Body: People are nice and hardworking.
