5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is actually the second choice as it is a little further away from my home. The first choice for me required an application fee upfront. This school did not. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The other school is MUCH larger and more spread out. This campus is more concentrated and their is a family feeling to it. I wouldn't change my decision if I could go back.

5 College Junior

Student Body: I have met so many different types of people on campus. There are people here that anyone could be friends with. In fact, I have several friends I talk to and hang out with outside of campus. There are many different programs and clubs to join, if you have the time. Being a mother and a wife, I don't have as much time as others.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do receive the Federal Pell Grant. I also received the SEOG. I was recently awarded a scholarship. I have had to visit the financial aid office twice. Most communication was conducted via email or over the phone. As with every college's financial aid office, the peak times do require a longer wait. But, that is to be expected.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: These courses have been my favorites. I live a good distance from campus and sometimes an online class is the best option for my schedule and availability. Everything about them is so easy: viewing & submitting assignments, asking a question, viewing grades, reporting problems if they happen.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not had to use these services. My husband is self-employed and I plan to assist with the bookkeeping aspect of that.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have no experience with transferring credits from one institution to another. However, I did need assistance with planning my classes after I changed my major at the end of the first semester. All of the courses I had taken that semester were able to transfer to the new major with none being dropped.

Campus Resources: I have only been to the library and the student center. Both buildings are always very clean and well maintained. The staff are always able to assist. I have had to take a refresher course in how to find books in the library since it has been a while since I graduated from high school. I also had to have assistance in logging onto the virtual library since I have satellite internet at home. The virtual library service could not geolocate my home. The librarian had to issue a User ID and password for me to log in when I am away from campus. I had no trouble getting that information and everyone was knowledgeable about the subject.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have had several classes that were based in computer labs. I have never found any problems with them. The equipment is modern and fast. I have been able to print whatever I needed in reference to school materials. WiFi is also available for student use. My phone is set to automatically connect to it when I am within range. I only have to open a browser window and enter my student information to login. The speed is great and pages always load fast enough which makes me not notice an issue with speed. You are able to bring your own devices into classrooms and on campus in general.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I thoroughly enjoy the experiences I have had while attending Gadsden State. I have scheduled my own classes online with little effort. I did have help with advising to select the courses for specific semesters. I am in my 3rd year and have been a full time student since I first started. I am currently set to graduate in the Spring of 2015. I have found answers to every question either by looking it up online or asking someone on campus.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are short term certificates as well as Associate degrees and Transfer degrees. There are many well-known areas of study to choose from.

4 College Junior

Facilities: I love that fact that the professors and advisors are always available for help. I also love that we have several campuses to help with the convenience of scheduling classes.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I take all online classes. I never have to miss work to attend class.

College Sophomore

Facilities: I am an online student so I am not on campus enough to have a real opinion.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can't really complain about my experience other than the horrid financial aid options.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have never had any issues using the systems. The registration and classes are always painless.

College Sophomore

Student Body: I can't really review on this since my classes are online. I have no physical interaction with any of my classmates.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I take online classes and nothing is overloaded or "too stressful". Seems like the right amount of work that should be handed out to someone who does not attend classes physically.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: They have a great engineering department. It made me very happy to know I can start there and later transfer the credits.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Everything is pretty standard. Nothing is really over the top or has a "WOW!" factor.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Reliable computers. Always someone at the desk to help if something goes wrong.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not had the chance to speak to a career center representative.

1 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's nearly impossible to get aid here. I have tried scholarships and the PELL grant. They don't offer the Stafford Loan so I am stuck with just saving up money from each paycheck... which isn't really a bad thing but it would help if I didn't have to...

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition at junior colleges is less than four year universities. This means that I am saving thousands of dollars in room and board a year by attending my local community college. My parents salaries disqualify me from financial aid, but that has more to do with the government. I am receiving a wonderful education for half the cost of others.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Most of the students that attend my school are non-traditional, meaning they are older and are coming back to college to further their careers. There is a lot of ethnic diversity; nevertheless, I do not think the gap between male and female is very large.

3 College Junior

Facilities: My school is an older school and some of the buildings and furniture in the classroom give away its early dates. I have not met teachers as friendly as the ones offered here and, although we are small, we are constantly volunteering to do things for our community.
