4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Student centers, library, and all the space for students to study is limited but it is a small school. The best thing i like is the TRiO room, very quiet and only accepted TRiO students are allowed in there.

Overall Experience: So far I am very excited to go to school and get my life going in the right direction. I've waited too long and if I would have started right after high school then I would have my masters.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuiton is very cheap and helps your financial aide go very far! you could use just grants alone and get through just fine! Minor fees like parking and student ID. Nothing to get upset about.

Academic Flexibility: Last year I was trying to apply for school and they denied me residency. I was from Idaho and becuase I didnt get a drivers licence in the alloted time I had to wait for a whole year... or pay 3 times the tuition. so I waited and applied again. The school year starts in August and my drivers licence ( proof of residencey- 1 year) is in September. They allowed me to get the in state tuition. I am so greatful! I have not needed to transfer credits, or seem classroom time yet.

Academic Experience: Because this is a Community College the Major that I want to complete is at another school. I am doing my generals here and it is a great way to save money!

Academic Experience: I have not been able to talk to any professors or seen any classroom time yet but the one thing that stuck out to me was the registration prosess. They have someone in the Adult Learning Center help you that is currently a student so she has lots of advice on knowing how to space out classes and to make sure you take certain ones that will be only avalible in the timeline. That really helps becuase some people would not be able to really know these secrets being a freshman.

Career Services: The TRiO program is a great program to get into if you qualify. You have to be a first generation student, Vetran, or disabled. Along with meeting the income requirements. They really care about you and your schooling. The reason that I express the love for this program is that I had some real trouble getting any help at the Admissions front desk. I know that they are probably really burnt out with helping the 1000 students ( rolling eyes) but they could atleast act like they care. I struggled to get into this school last year because the lack of communication.

Facilities: I have not started school just yet but I have done a tour of the facility and the above ratings are accurate. There is room for inprovement. I have started the TRiO program at our school and so far that seems like the only office that is nice enough to care about your education. The school does have after school programs that are not avaliable to go towards your credits but look fun. ( Pottery, Photography, Computer program courses) This is a very bare bones facility and is expectied since it is a community college.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process is easy, the only thing I don't like about it is the school just started dispersing the refund checks at different intervals of the semester which is hard for students who are unable to work during the school year.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The students in the nursing program are amazing, the other students aren't very friendly and the school seems very cliquey.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I think I chose the right school for the Nursing program. The teachers and students are amazing, the workload is acceptable, the classrooms/mannequins are newer and clean. The classes are easy to follow and teach appropriate/meaning material.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are a couple different academic programs at this school and I have heard really good things about them. Registration is fairly easy, and the workload is acceptable in almost all classes.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The variety of class times offered is mediocre. Since I am in the nursing program each class is offered only once so I don't have an option to fit my schedule. The credits that transferred from my University before all were successful, however there were some changes in classes so only partial credits were transferred meaning I had to retake some classes.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are a few computer labs at my school. Some are not always accessible due to computer classes, but overall they are decent. The amount of printing money the school gives you is more than enough. The wireless is average speed and the IT men are always available for answering questions and fixing computers.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library is decent sized with knowledgable librarians, there isn't much for athletic centers, the student center is big enough for the student population at my school. The cafeteria doesn't have many healthy options, however the food is very good.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall I do enjoy this school. The nursing students and teachers are great. It is such a small school everyone seems to know everyone and I believe thats the best way to learn.The price is also reasonable and I'm glad I chose this school.

3 College Senior

Career Services: I graduated from the LPN program in December of 2013 and the school put on a Career Fair for the nursing students which was helpful however I did not feel prepared for a career once I graduated. I think it would be more helpful if I had someone to talk to regarding careers once graduated.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have taken one online class, and it was a great experience. The school website is user-friendly, the teacher kept in contact, and the workload was perfect. During the class we also had blogs between other students which helped keep in contact with our peers.

3 College Senior

Facilities: I have been to two different schools a University and a tech school. I enjoy the teachers at Helena College (tech school) because they seem to care more about their students. However there is less to do at the tech and there are no sporting events whatsoever. I enjoy both schools, I just realized i'm more of a University person.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Location is key for me. I am lucky enough to live in a small town that offers and Associate Degree RN program. For that, I am thankful and excited. I am a single mom with 2 kids, and moving to another town to obtain my degree is not an option for me.

4 College Senior

Career Services: The post grad services helped me to land a job in the past and I am confident that they will help me find a job this academic year.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm in the nursing program at my school, which is very hard to get in to. I'm proud of myself for getting in. The course work is excellent and prepares you for the real world of working as a nurse.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The class registration process was very easy. We could register online, which was very convenient. I love our professors in the Nursing program. They are very knowledgable and encouraging.
