2 College Senior

Academic Experience: I just don't think most of the instructors spend enough time preparing for class.

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: They are discontinuing the program. They knew this might be a possibility when I enrolled but never said anything to me in warning.

2 College Senior

Career Services: Career center has not be responsive or helpful to me in finding work related to my course of study.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose this school again. Too many problems with financial aid, on-line course experiences and low availability of courses.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I always have to ask for the information I need more than once because, apparently, the people in financial aid don't read my emails before responding. I also have to wait an inappropriate amount of time for a response. Many times I end up making a phone call because email takes too long. They discontinued the Federally Guaranteed Student Loan program and I found out about it too late to apply for many scholarships that would have otherwise been available to me. Due to the low quality of my on-line course instructors (meaning either their knowledge of the technology or response time to my questions) I do not feel as if I am getting my money's worth from them.

3 College Senior

Facilities: This school has the most beautiful grounds I have ever seen on a campus. It is a designated arboretum and is a beautiful place to learn and play!

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I will put it like this: I had five courses transferable to my 2 year AAS and it is still going to take me over 3 years to get my degree because of two things: 1) They only offer the courses once a year and 2) They stopped offering Federally Guaranteed Student Loans because of the school's default rate so I have to return to work instead of focusing on studying.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: The on-line instructors are not monitored to see if they are giving quality instruction. Most of the instructors either do not respond in a timely manner (I've gone as far a 6 weeks without a response to an emailed question.) and/or do not answer the question you asked. Most of them have not reviewed their on-line instructions which most often do not have updated due dates. (For instance, they are still the due dates from the last year or last semester.) Their are many, many instances of misspellings or incorrect language usage that makes the point they are trying to get across confusing or misleading.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Most of my fellow students tend to congregate with those who have the same exact interests and exclude all others. It is very "clicky" in my opinion. Of course, I am a much older student, so I have a low tolerance for the immaturity of young, just out of high school, drama queen students.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Everything in this arena is exceptional (including customer service) except for the speed. It is slower than most network speeds I have encountered, which is frustrating when you are trying to get things done between classes or need to do serious research because you spend all of your time waiting.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Some resources are superior, like the Technology Center and the Library. They have the most up to date equipment and the people that staff these are knowledgeable and helpful in any way they can be. On the other hand, resources like the career center didn't help me at all. Their idea of helping you with your career is to send you to the state's Workforce Development where you can receive help but only if you are going into a blue collar job. Career Development didn't even respond to my emailed request for a meeting to help me prepare a resume, they just referred me to Workforce Development and I received a call out of nowhere from WD. WD, in turn, openly admitted they were not prepared to help me find a job because it was industrial blue collar...what?

3 College Senior

Online Courses: workload is excessive for example there is twice to do for the on-line classes than for the classroom. The registration process if average. The professors are more for on-line classes and thee peer to peer is too much competitiveness and there is too much immaturity

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They now refuse to help students that apply for financial aid with the loan process. They discriminate against these students and make it personal for example it is the students responsibility if they need more help not the school saying they don't want to bother.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Network reliability is okay but they are slower at times but there does seem to be enough computers in some areas in the school. There is no free printing for personal or club activities posters.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: no athletic programs the student center are too little and noisy. The library is god with staff that is helpful. There are several campus activities but most are related to forestry

3 College Senior

Student Body: A lot of immaturity. They say the are a college of diversity but I don't see this.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would not choose this school if I had to do it over. The early school program creates classes that are immature and they cut down on the college students classes. I have so far not had that much of a good experience. There is really nothing unique about this school. They are more focused on forestry programs than they are the other areas of study.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are for the most part are available when you need them but with their on-line classes being such a heavy load they don't have enough time to fully explain. I feel they show favoritism to some students. I believe you should receive equal opportunities for all students based on grades not whether you like them more. I had this happen to me and I have excellent references and a GPA of 3.8 The other student had a lower GPA and we were all in the same class. No I feel there needs to be a better of selection.

Another example is the vice president recommending a student for a leadership program and after talking with the student the only way they knew each other was they met at the place where the student worked.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Medical Office Administration. The workload for this program is overwhelming. I don't think some of the classes need to be in the curriculum. The facility is okay but not enough parking. The internship program is available and I will start that in the fall of 2014. It is difficult to get administration time and student government is not good at all. There are no objectives that matter such as having a lounge instead of parking.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Need more classes on the campus. There is too much emphasis with on-line classes. I do better with classes where an instructor teaches.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I have not reached this point yet. I will graduate in December of 2014.
