Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: So far my experience has been good. The school is far, but I do like the location of it. I like that it is right off the train line making it super accessible to reach. I look forward to adding on to my experience in this school.

Online Courses at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I took an online nursing orientation. It was okay. I had to do surveys and quizzes as well as short essays. It was okay, but I prefer to do in person classes.

Campus Resources at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: There are many resources available on campus. There is a gym, a library, a computer lab, three lounge areas including the cafeteria, there is a daycare and my favorite the wellness center. In the wellness center, they help us when we are going through personal problems and school problems.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I didn't know that I would be considered a part time student. I am going to be studying full time, but since only 7 credits are counted towards my GPA I didn't get enough financial aid to cover the programs costs. That's why I am looking for a scholarship to help me pay my remaining tuition and books.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: Well, this is my first year in the program so I haven't had much contact with my professors. However, I have talked to many students and they are very friendly. We are all ready to give it our all in this Nursing program.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I still have a lot to learn about the school, but there are a lot of student clubs and activities offered at the school.

Student Body at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: Out of all the City Colleges, this may be one of the most ethnically diverse schools. There are international students, African Americans, Asians, Hispanics etc. There is so much cultural richness in this school, it's awesome!

Academic Flexibility at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: They told us from the start that this was going to be an intense nursing program. They want us to succeed so they demand a lot from us. They tell us to focus on our studying and practice. It is important for us to give school priority over other things so that we can graduate with honors and achieve our main goal of becoming nurses.

Academic Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I find the program to be appropriate for what we are studying. They help students stay positive and offer a lot of help to those who feel anxious or overwhelmed. The workload is heavy, but it pushes students to do their very best. It is a challenging program that builds on our knowledge and enforces responsibility which comes with any medical occupation.

Academic Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I loved the registration process. They organized everything in the best way possible. They offered a manditory online pre-nursing orientation and an in person orientation day. These gave a lot of information on what students are to expect as they begin the nursing program. They also had a mandatory boot camp, where students received more information on the program as well as a campus tour. The registration was a bit overwhelming, but it was mainly because so much was covered in one day.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: My tuition and finalcial aid is bad because i not reciving finalcial help from goverment , which this makes it really difficult to work and be a full student. I have apply to different schoolarships to help me out but i still dont recive any answer. My experience between my concelor was ok but i still need more help from him.

2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: The faculty made everything difficult in transfering all my credits that I have earn in my previous College. The staff wouldn't accept my credit for the subject I have previously done, I had to take the placement test again which was not necessary, and made me waste my time and money, I would have been exceeding but I'am not since the staff needed me to retake the course that I already took and passed my first year as a freshman in Monmouth and I feel as if I'am being set up for failure.

Campus Resources at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: i feel like in this school in order to be student friendly you must have to put yourself out there. i do feel like just a number and there is not really must spirit to get you into activites or social groups

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: i have yet to try and transfer credits. classrooms and curriculum are fairly easy and teachers are understanding if you try to make a social relationship with them

Student Body at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: the school is somewhat diverse. different ethnic groups and social classes.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: the schools tuition is much cheaper than universities, but i still don't understand the high cost of tuition from all over. school is needed all around for people the excel in real life. how do colleges expect people to enter the world with thousands of dollars in debt. my education here i feel is not worth the money but a city college is the cheapest way to start off with out drowning your self in debt. i cannot receive financial aid due to my current income, but i hardly have enough income to make tuition payments. also my experience in the financial aid office has been horrible the attitudes on these women are appalling. you try to be polite and yet they still act like you're wasting their time when they are being paid for it. if they do not like customer service they should not have took the job.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: their class size is relatively small so it is easier to get the help you need. they have a variety of classes you can take. some teachers teach right out of the book and some seem to make things up as you go along. there are many teachers which are from other countries so sometimes it is difficult to understand them.

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: as of what ive seen so far from coming to the school there are many fairs in which people do come and try to recruit them into their school or a job. i see a lot of different colleges coming but im still yet to see the alumni try and get the students out there. you must go to them in order to push your name out there.

2 College Senior

Career Services at City Colleges of Chicago - Malcolm X College: they are very unorganized unless you know someone. they seem to really not care and dont try to put effort into the students.

Online Courses at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: I've had one hybrid course at Truman and the professor was very good. It was an anatomy and physiology class so there was plenty of materials to access and to study.

Tuition & Financial Aid at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: Since I have a previous Bachelor's degree, most of my financial aid money was already gone when I got here. But, I needed to get the last little bit to help me pay for last semester. The financial aid guy was awesome at figuring out how much I had left borrow and getting me set up for that. Unfortunately, to receive the remainder of my loan after tuition was paid, I had to wait a couple of months to get it. The reason for this, I was told is that sometimes young people have signed up for classes and got the full financial aid package, and took the money and ran, never showed up for classes. So to avoid this you have to attend class a certain portion of the semester before you can get the money, and they break it into two installments. (Always a few bad apples ruining it for the rest of us!)

Student Body at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: This campus = Major Diversity!! The three greatest areas of diversity at Truman are ethnic/ racial; religious; and sexual. I think our community is very accepting, but I'm a middle-aged, semi-liberal, white woman... my point of view may be skewed... : )

Career Services at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: What I've seen from Career Services seems good, but nothing to write home about. They didn't help me find a job. Very few of the listings they had for jobs were in my field.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience at City Colleges of Chicago - Truman College: The quality of courses and professors is terrific. I brag about my professors all the time. If there's a weakness it is in the variety of courses offered. For instance, if I want to learn Mandarin, I have to go to another campus. The arts courses are minimal at Truman, but again, another City College has more arts classes or more theater. This is however, the way the organization is reorganizing. Consolidating all classes of a particular type together under one roof. This should supposedly be more cost effective- we shall see!
