3 College Sophomore

Facilities: There really isn't anything unique, its kind of just like a big high-school but with a wide range of ages.

Academic Experience: Well it seems to be good, I haven't add any experience at other schools with my major but I have learned a lot from my EDUC classes and service learning experience.

Online Courses: I like and dislike online classes, I am a visual learner so I have to see the work laid out and be able to ask questions right away, but I have started to get the online classes down, I think I would have to say I do enjoy them better, save gas, save driving time, the only thing is that you have to make yourself sit down and do the work, being at home and taking a class can get very distracting, but you just have to set yourself a time and place to get it all done.

Academic Flexibility: When I first started going there it was hard to have a schedule that worked with my work life, classes would be hours apart, or the ones I needed at the same time, then would go into odd hours, the classes would fill up fast because registration would start for people with the most credits, so when I first started I had none so I would get last pick, and have to re-change everything around, that is why I switched to online and I enjoy that instead of going to the school.

Student Body: Every class has a wide variety of race, religion, culture beliefs.

Campus Resources: They have computer labs, printing that you pay for, Not the fastest connection, a lot of times the computers freeze when I would use them my first year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I wasn't a big fan of going to the school, but it has all the necessities.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have taken classes at the school as well as online, and I don't think its right that online classes cost more, and also in the tuition you pay for parking and printing/internet uses, but being an online student, I don't use the parking lot or the internet there. I would also think that online classes would be less expensive because you are not wasting as many papers having to turn into class everyday, some of the books you purchase are online and aren't even at the schools bookstore.

Career Services: Great opportunities at this school and everyone is very helpful and understanding!

Student Body: So diverse. We have students of all colors, orientations, levels of bigotry/acceptance, political beliefs, religions. Mostly lower class economically, though, like no super rich people. Century prides itself on being extremely diverse.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I went here because I didn't want to waste time and money pursuing a degree at a university while changing my major a million times. I am still unsure of what I want to do, but I'm glad I saved a bunch of money going to community school.

Facilities: Century is popular in nursing, so get used to seeing people in scrubs. We are also very diverse so it's very probable you'll get to know someone from another country.

Academic Experience: I'm finishing up Liberal Arts and Sciences AA and it's pretty good. I like to procrastinate so I would probably be less stressed all the time if I wouldn't take "me days" all the time.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Most instructors here aren't professors, but they are still very good. I learn a lot and the class sizes are usually very small. My largest class had 70 students and that is because it is three classes in the same room (we split up for chemistry lab). So usually it's like 30-50 students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Pretty good. I think that if I wanted to take night classes I would have to go by the phrase, "beggars can't be choosers" because I don't think any of the classes I wanted were really available at night. But who knows maybe its way worse other places.

Tuition & Financial Aid: So cheap! Totally worth it! last semester cost me $2,900 for 15 credits. But last year I only paid like $270 for 30 credits (yes, those numbers are right) because of all the financial aid grants I received. This semester will be $2300 for 13 credits with no financial aid all year :(. But that does not include textbooks or the cost of gas (I live 35 miles away from campus). I was able to take classes M-Th my firsts year, so four day weeks and this year it's been M,W,F so only three days, which reduces the amount of times I have to drive out there. I would estimate textbooks are $200 a semester.

Campus Resources: Pretty great, we have a bunch of labs many printers the internet is above average for schools I guess. I have a hard time connecting to the wifi on my phone sometimes, but there are plenty of resources.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: We have a pretty great fitness center that's free to students, out library is new and that's nice. There are lots of activities that I'm not involved with but I know they are there because during the first week of school they will give out ice cream, pizza, pop corn, it's awesome.

Online Courses: There aren't that many and the ones they do have are packed with students so if your prof. makes you read everyone else's discussion post... it can be time consuming.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Just starting my 2nd semester at this school. Like the classes - workload is fine.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: For a 2 year college seems like they have quite a variety of programs for your basic 2 year programs and continuing education options.

College Junior

Career Services: In my first year - haven't needed to utilize the post-grad services yet.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Haven't received any financial aid as yet.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Nice campus. Don't use the athletic facilities much between work and school. Use the student center for studying between classes - busy.
