4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's up to You. Resources are limited only by your lack of technology. Pretty much everything is given to you and it's up to you if you want to use it or not.
They have a game room and games available.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a lot of fun in classes and the professors are great. Everyone is friendly in the school and mostly everyone knows each other. The classes are worth everything.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sans the difficulties with tuition payments and financial aid issues all over the place, I am very pleased with my experience and time here at Collins College. Important skills are learned early on, and honed throughout your courses.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Pleasantly Diverse! We have people from all walks of life here at my school. Most are working adults with families, but there are a lot of other students who are here just to go to college who don't have much else to do either. Usually students from certain programs stick together and collaborate and study together, since we have a main lounge where most of our student body goes to socialize and work at their leisure. The kicker for this college is that, with me being a graphic design student, I can collaborate with any of the game production or fashion students and help them on their projects and vice versa. Help is always appreciated and welcomed among us students.

Academic Experience: I do enjoy my academic experience here at this college. With instructors that work in the fields they teach, they can directly apply lectures to their real world experience and give insight on how to go about our own careers. General education is just about as vanilla as you can get, but the course specific courses are interesting and can be immediately chalked up to the experience and skills list on your resume.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The classes here are something I am quite pleased with so far. They mix general education courses with core classes to keep you motivated and interested, instead of droning on with general education for the first years. I've had a few great instructors who are talented and work in the field they are teaching, although I have also had instructors who are new to the scene and have no organizational skills or their teaching is sub-par and difficult to adapt to.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Same Page, Anyone? I don't want to say the Financial Aid process here is terrible, but it is a tedious process which I am never fond of going through. Since I don't make a whole lot of money to live, even my minimum payments each month are hard to dish out. I am not sure how their service is during the day, but waiting for their office representatives varies from quick and painless to drawn-out and sometimes you just can't wait nearly an hour for help and need to leave for class. A list of things required should be provided, instead of getting calls here and there of other information they suddenly need.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I really didn't have high hopes for my chances of collegiate success. Even getting in would be a struggle, or so I thought. Not true, said the Financial Aid at Collins College. I was surprised by their ability and knowledge. I was accepted and helped along into college.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: The First of the Program – Since my class is the first of their Audio Production program I encountered many problems in nearly all areas of this program. I understand that there will be growing pains with anything new. This was nothing but a major headache for a solid year with this program. We were issued computers without abilities to update and programs that needed updates. It was quite the fiasco when we were into our 5th week of a 10 week course and we still weren't doing any coursework.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: No Communication Between Programs – I would like to give my school an A, I really would. However, after being there for over a year I have noticed that there is not much communication between the programs. Those in charge are missing a golden opportunity to really create something special. Using the different characteristics of each program to bring something together would really create the positive creative experience I would like to think they are really shooting for. We are an art school with programs like audio, video, fashion design and interior design. If that isn't a perfect storm to really create something I don't know what is. I long to work in a professional atmosphere with these other programs and let the cream rise to the top. All of us working together has many benefits, and I really think that we are missing out on something.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Be Prepared to Learn and Spend a Bit More. Though you cover most of everything with tuition, you do have to pay a small fee for class projects. The education is well worth it, I believe.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The teachers work with you to resolve any school or personal problems. Student Services try hard to acknowledge your work schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Very School Oriented – The student council are students that know everyone very well and also seem to work within the school. They provide fun, yet important events. They are very outgoing and highly active with teachers, administrative personal, and students.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Staff Great / Tuition Seems Expensive – Staff is great; tuition seems expensive, but is all inclusive. You know up front what total cost is going to be, whereas a regular university you know what tuition will be, but then you have to purchase books and other supplies. Collins tuition cost is all inclusive. Education has been great so far. Have learned much and expect to learn much more.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: This School Rocks – this school has everything a student would need to complete there education friendly staff lay back atomphere and plenty of thing to keep you busy during school evrything from sound design to fashion

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school had a good wifi network and several printers hooked up to the network however many of htem didn't operate perfectly and had poor connections.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Not Very. The set schedules the school has adopted are rather rigid and don't always fit around work schedules the way they are intended. They only have morning and night classes with no sort of afternoon program in between.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Good Choice – I enjoyed my first terms at the school very much. It was career oriented and informative. I learned quite a lot of valuable skills and techniques that will greatly help me in the field of graphic design. My only issue with the school is the expensive tuition.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The school does an amazing job they have a low student to teacher ratio and they are always willing to help you succeed.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Schools Help – Collins college has done a wonderful job explaining and helping me through the entire process

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The Campus Itself – At first it's a little confusing to find your way around, although after a few days it's very easy to navigate and the hallways are not crammed considering the actual size of the school. Students are able to have their projects shown in cases throughout the school which I find very motivating and unique, compared to just a plaque with a name and an award and not seeing the actual effort put into the award itself.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Best Community – It's hard to not find something in-common with your fellow classmates; Even if they are not going into the same career. Everyone has an open mind and an open heart, not to mention everyone is willing to give a helping hand where needed. The faculty is very efficient at making sure every need is met by providing any advice, as well as the campus provides an extensive library and computer lab to get work done.

2 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: Sub Par – The career center is more business based. Forget trying to get any sensible creative graphics work, or any sort of helpful advice towards getting a job in that.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Motion Graphics – I'm going to discuss my bachelors portion of my studies for various, tedious reasons. My Bachelors I preformed very poorly in because I was in the process of literally giving up. I was far too advanced in my studies to have any trouble or challenge at all and most of the time I was teaching my teachers. I didn't see how it was worth 20,000 more dollars to relearn everything I learned my my Associates. I'm not even joking, the classes were exactly the same. My teacher was wonderful though, I loved him. He was great and I take my hat off to him for dealing with the other students.

1 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Genuinely Not Worth It – If you're going for motion graphics, find Gnomon College. Video production, go to any other film and video college. The cost is way too high for a sub par school where only a few of my teachers were worth while. I got a decent education out of it, but for the debt I came out owing I would have done better going to a more specialized school. The students are horrible, the number of redeemable teachers can be counted on one hand and the facilities are not as well equipped as they have you believe. I was also repeatedly lied to by the recruiters, and one of my teachers! Go somewhere ELSE.
