Overall Experience: All in all, I'm very satisfied with my education at Globe. I learned many great skills and qualities that are necessary for a career in my program. The hands-on experience and the externship were absolutely invaluable and if I ever need to refresh any of my skills I am able to do so free of charge. One of the best things about Globe is that the Career Services Center is available to every alum forever.

Overall Experience: It depends on the area in which you are able to get a job. In a small market like La Crosse, there are many veterinary clinics and animal hospitals in the region, but positions open up so few and far between. When positions do become available, competition for them is absolutely fierce, and the most experienced/qualified will always get the job. They all want experienced technicians, but it's hard to get that experience if none of the employers are willing to take a chance on a fresh newbie.

Campus Resources: The only available resources on campus are the Career Services Center and the Library. The university is a career college, dedicating to getting the students in, graduated, and on with their lives in as timely a manner as possible. They do not rush the students, however. They are aware that every student learns differently and some learn faster than others. There are tutors on campus (both instructor-led and student-led) available if extra help is required. The university staff wants to ensure the success of their graduates, not just get them graduated and wash their hands of them.

Career Services: Carolyn Moe was an amazing coordinator. She kept on top of all of the available openings for all of the programs she was responsible for, including veterinary technology. She is my go-to gal for whenever I need assistance in updating my resume or a field-specific job hunt. She was incredible when it came to preparing for interviews and submitting applications, and even proper interview wardrobe advice. She really knows what it takes to succeed, and she dedicates herself to every student in the programs she's responsible for.

Academic Flexibility: In order for me to attend classes I actually had to quit my full-time job. The variability of the courses required for the degree made obtaining part-time work very difficult as the class times changed every 3 months. None of the credits I had taken at previous colleges transferred even though several attempts were made to get them transferred.

Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I chose to not take online classes, as I felt i was not a reliable enough student to keep up with the coursework.

Student Body: Globe University welcomes students of all walks of life. Anyone wanting to better themselves and their situations are strongly encouraged to attend Globe because they have programs that suit most needs/lifestyles.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It was up to the student to find their own way to pay for the education. The Financial Aid office went over the FAFSA form to see if we qualified for government aid (Stafford loans, etc) but didn't go into anything outside of government assistance (which I didn't qualify for), and didn't really give the students direction on where to find information for scholarships, etc.

Academic Experience: The Vet Tech program at Globe is a top-notch program. 70% of the course work is hands-on, and the university supports the local rescue shelters by allowing adoptable animals to spend a week on campus so the students can learn how to perform various clinical, diagnostic and surgical procedures in a real-world/classroom environment. The instructors are professionals in the field (including three veterinarians on staff) and did everything they could to prepare their students for a career in veterinary medicine.

Academic Experience: The academics were just okay. There were a number of things that I would like to have learned as a student that were either glossed over or not even touched on that I encountered on my externship. The externship program was awesome. We students were required to fill 270 hours of coursework at a veterinary clinic getting real-world hands-on experience in a clinical environment. I would have liked to spend more time covering the nutrition aspects of the curriculum during our Nutrition/Nursing Skills course, but it was 70% nursing/30% nutrition. And all we did was discuss the basics. We didn't even get into any real-world applications.

Online Courses: Online courses are a great companion to traditional classes, and make each program flexible enough to suit nearly any schedule.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had a great overall experience with Globe so far. Yes, I have hit a few snags, but the staff has worked with me to get through them and move forward with my educational goals.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I transferred in credits from other colleges, and the process was very easy. Staff was attentive and allowed me to transfer in the vast majority of credits I earned elsewhere.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial Aid is abundant, and the staff do everything they can to make sure each student's individual needs are addressed.

College Junior

Student Body: I do not believe it is possible to rate the levels of acceptance of diversity within the student body. Globe is a career college, and the vast majority of the students are non-traditional.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The Career Services Center offers everything from job placement assistance to resume and cover letter review. There is a job board with relevant postings specifically chosen for students, and the Center's hours make it easy to see a member of the staff.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Globe treats each student as a person, not just a student I.D. number. It is awesome to have our entire campus in a single building, with state of the art labs, plenty of work space and attentive staff. The blended (part online, part on campus) programs make earning a college degree possible for just about everyone.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Campus Resources are great! The inter-library lending program and online library make it easy to conduct research. The campus itself is smaller, lending to a more "community" environment. Campus clubs and organizations hold fundraisers and drives for various community needs (eg. Jelly Jam drive to support local food pantries, Operation Warm participation to help needy children obtain winter coats) and host a variety of treats and activities throughout the month.

Campus Resources: The wireless access is campus-wide, reliable and about the same speed as in-home wireless service. Also available is the handfull of on-site computer labs with private printers. Printing and copying on campus is free to all students and staff. It is not necessary to obtain a personal computer or printer if time management would allow for consistent time on campus to use the provided facilities.

Academic Flexibility: Class schedules include Days and Evening. Also numerous online course offerings for added flexibility. Very convenient for someone trying to go back to school yet still work a daytime job.

Academic Experience: I tend to cause discussion because most of the teachers I have had on campus have not had a Forensic Accounting major in their classes before.

Online Courses: Sometimes the material is difficult to manage. I have an assignment right now of watching a particular movie and then writing a paper on it - all within a week, unfortunately, I cannot find this movie available for rent and may have to actually purchase it to complete the assignment.
