3 College Junior

Student Body: Outside of the students in my study, I don't know anyone. All I need our my classmates though. They are great support.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: They are very friendly but the wait time for the enrollment center is ALWAYS long.

3 College Junior

Career Services: the nice thing is because there is a demand for my profession. Our school can place us in jobs very easily.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: We have the lowest dollar amount per credit in the state. It really helps because I pay my own tuition.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I actually never took an online coarse here.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I graduated from Scottsdale Community College with two degrees and all of my credits transferred.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The one thing that I do love about my school is that because I do a trade program, I have been going to school with the same students for years. We have become a family and we really support each other in this hard profession we decided to do. They are very encouraging and keep your moral up.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is pretty small but for being small it does have a lot to offer. Like I stated earlier, it is the only school in Arizona that you can physically attend class for the Court Reporting program. They also teach high school students for an accelerated program.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a court reporting student at Gateway Community College. I have been in the program for 5 years now. The problem I have with it is that I feel we need more class time. It's an intense field of study and even though I have been in it for so long I feel I'm not getting all the education I need. I find that I have to study harder on my own because there are not a lot of resources at school. We are able to get internships after we reach our speed of 200 WPM. I wish we could get them sooner. Finally, the facility needs to be up-dated completely. Half of the school is new and the other is old.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: We are short staffed, and the curriculum is always changing. I wish it was more consistent or that I had another Stenography school available in Arizona to go to. There is one but it is online and I feel you need to be physically in a classroom in order to master our craft. As mush as this sounds somewhat of a mediocre school, I'm almost finish and I'm not a quitter. I just feel I should have a better education especially since I pay my own tuition.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I am not sure what Career Services is like at this school. I already had a part-time job when I started school. I am hoping that once I finish my degree program and pass the qualification exam that school's Career Services will be very helpful in my job search process.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Attending community college is a lot more affordable than going to a regular four year university. I have attended college before and I was paying $200 a credit hour in 1995. Since that time, higher education has skyrocketed and I would not be able to afford classes at a regular university unless I was given a full-ride scholarship. I believe I am lucky to be attending school now and I feel that I will be able to find the money I need to continue even if I have to take one class at a time.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: When I first classes last year, I had to be a full time student with 12 credits since a Veterans Administration program was paying for my classes. This was very difficult for me to pick classes that would have helped me complete required classes for my program. Now that I am having to pay for school myself, I can pick the classes I need and I think that I will be able to apply for my program in May of 2015.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Most of the students I have met in my classes are like me; they are adults going back to school to create better employment opportunities for themselves. They, like me, have very little time to socialize with other students since time is very tight and there is a lot to do in a very short amount of time. There are some younger students, but I do not have time to interact with them because I am trying to get my assignments finished and get to work on most days.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are quite a few resources available on campus; however, I do not time to take advantage of them because I go to school in the morning, work in the afternoon and then try to get my homework done at night.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The program I am in is one of the hardest programs offered at the school. The workload is hard, but staying focused will help me to get through it as quickly as possible.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: This community college as a large Nursing population. This program is hard and many student drop out. Even though they school offers a lot of tutoring opportunities, many students are like me, they have to work support themselves and their families. If instructors would remember that many students are parents, spouses or heads-of-households, and assign homework and/or classwork accordingly, it would help to decrease the drop out rate.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is okay. The school is small and they have built onto is in recent years. I work part-time off campus, so I do not spend much time there outside of class.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have been attending this community college for over a year and it has been okay. Some of the classes have been very hard, especially since I am an older adult returning to school. However, I stress to each student to remember why they wanted to go to school in the first place and stay focused on those goals. Hard classes, no time to study and worrying about money can pull a student's focus from their real goal - getting a degree that will provide better employment opportunities. Notice to all students: Remember to stay focused on your primary goal - getting your degree!

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: They follow through, but sometimes it requires multiple communication

5 College Junior

Student Body: Definite mix of students of all ages and walks of life.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't taken online classes here, but the students in my at-school classes that have taken them find they are challenging (as they should be).

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everything is as expected. I love the fact that communication is done through email. However, due to not having departments get back to me timely (or having me make duplicate calls or send duplicate emails), that could be worked on.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not able to apply for financial aid due to having advanced degree already, but my fellow students have no problem. Tuition is expensive everywhere, but is 1/3 of the price at this school that it would cost at Pima Medical Institute, the next closest school with same degree.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Don't participate in social scene or campus life, but from what I observe it appears great.
