3 College Junior

Academic Experience: A unique aspect of the degree program I'm in is that I'm in class with people that are already in the field, which makes for very interesting discussion boards.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The Academics offered at CTU are challenging but they make you better in the long run. I like the classes with the virtual labs where you do all the assignments or majority of all the assignments such as statistics, accounting, college math etc.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The degree I am seeking is a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with specialization in Software application programming. So far I have been challenged to say the least . I couldn't be happier with my success rate at the moment although at time the workload seems never ending. That being said I am glad I chose this school as I feel I retain more information because of the ease of use within the classroom experience.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The classes are challenge , if you are looking for a easy way to earn a degree look else where . The courses are challenging but with some dedication and hard work most anyone could succeed here. Professors are knowledgeable and understanding and most of all they all seem to love their jobs which in my opinion is very important in the college setting.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am learning and currently working on my MBA (generals) Workloads can be overwhelming at time but I have great support and friends that help out.
