2 College Senior

Student Body: Honestly I have gone in for certain tests that I had to take in a classroom setting and I have yet to meet any student. No one has come up to me to introduce themselves so I think it is a very self motivated school. I really have not meet a single person from FVTC and hope I can get out as soon as possible

College Senior

Academic Flexibility: So far my classes have been on my own time, so I schedule everything around my home life

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The online classes are more expensive than going to class, but if you go to each class every day you will be going broke in gas money. I like online classes much better and I enjoy learning from home.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I do wish I would have went to a 4 year college but at age 28 I really didn't have much of a choice. For a tech school I think it is what you pay for- it's not the greatest education in the world but it will teach me the techniques I will need for my future.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I have been to the student center in Appleton once, it is quite nice. Oshkosh however doesn't have much for the students. The activities are plentiful but seems like I am way to busy to do any of them, being a full-time mom and student. I feel just like a number , however I do seem to keep in contact with my professors when I need to.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The program itself has worked great for me. I take all of my classes online so far and am looking to graduate next spring. I have not looked for an internship yet, I should be looking later this summer and on to this fall- then hopefully take one in the spring.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: registration process is pretty straight forward, the only problem I have is when I forget about my enrollment date. It is a little difficult to find classes the longer you have to wait to sign up for them.

College Senior

Career Services: I am not graduated yet from this school therefore I wouldn't know about alumni

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There is always room for improvement in a business, but overall my experience has been very good.

Academic Experience: If I am understanding this question correctly the curriculum is set up to mirror real world experience that I may have to deal with in my career.

Academic Experience: It is very easy to sign up for classes, submit assignments, and deal with all financial issues online.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I really like that instructors who have had real world experience are the ones who are hired to teach. Example -most criminal justice classes are taught by people who were police officers.

Academic Flexibility: Again, the flexibility that comes with taking all my classes online has proven invaluable.

Online Courses: I would not be able to work towards attaining my degree in Homeland Security if it were not for the online options that FVTC offers.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I know that by attending a tech college for the first two years will save me a mint upon transferring to a bachelor level.

College Junior

Student Body: The student body is very diverse in age, culture, and skill sets. They all come from different walks of life and have varying backgrounds and experiences to share.

College Junior

Campus Resources: I have not utilized any of these services, so I do not feel it acceptable to rate them yet.

College Junior

Campus Resources: I am an online student and have not had to use any of these services, therefore I can't rate them yet.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I have not utilized these services yet, but the ones that I have used (TechConnect, etc.) have been okay.

College Junior

Career Services: Im unsure of post graduation services, from what I hear they are good, but I have no experience with them yet.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Education is very valuable, sometimes challenging. Id suggest applying for scholarships, without them I wouldnt have managed to stay in school

3 College Junior

Student Body: FVTC isnt very diverse, partly due to the location, Northern Wisconsin is largely of German decent. There is a minority of Hispanic and Hmong people but probably less than 25%. People are fairly accepting of others though.

5 College Junior

Facilities: I came to FVTC for Law Enforcement, I wasnt disappointed, this is one of the best schools in the nation for Law Enforcement. Social scene is kinda non-existent, you have to make friends here or you will be a loner. Not a great assortment of clubs to choose from. No campus life, no dorms in Appleton that I know of.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It's easy to choose what class times you want, as long as you register early enough. If you want all night classes you can, or early morning. The schedule is up to the student.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: A great majority of the teachers at FVTC are top notch. Most of them are still involved in their field of work in some way, or teach a subject that doesnt change drastically, like math.
