College Junior

Career Services: I am currently a freshman so I can't really answer this question yet.

College Junior

Campus Resources: I have not had much of a reason to go to all of the resources that Ivy Tech offers. After I start my fall semester I would probably be able to answer this better.

College Junior

Student Body: I have only been to an 8 week semester so far so I can't really answer this question. After my spring semester I could probably answer this question a lot better.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: So far I have not had any problems with scheduling my classes. I can work easily around my schedule.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not any online classes yet.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Everything is very easy online. I like it especially because I get to work at my own speed and don't have to wait on anyone or have to sit down at a specific time. Blackboard is easy to use but the update added a lot of unnecessary features (like notifications??). Most of my teachers answer emails in a timely manner and are willing to adjust around things like family emergencies or vacations (if you give notice). I wish there were more online courses because it is effortless compared to in-person classes at Ivy Tech.

College Sophomore

Career Services: Since I'm not a post-grad, I have no idea what it's like.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Do not start college at this school, it is void of life, fun, and any sort of university experience. It just makes you cynical and sad. If you're older and coming back, this is probably one of the best places to because everyone is your age and just want to learn.

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: No one really has any school spirit. No one cares about the school at all. It's straight to classes and straight to home/work. It's a fairly sad and boring experience.

For the social scene, there are movie nights, I hear. Now if anyone goes, that's another story.

1 College Sophomore

Student Body: The average student at Ivy Tech is from the town (as are their entire family tree it seems), white, super conservative, christian, homophobic, sexist, racist, and usually around 30-50 (particularly night classes). They are generally unfriendly if they do not know you. They are very clique-ish and will rarely speak to anyone outside of their circle of comfort. Particularly the male students will go out of their way to loudly disrupt the class by loudly stating their opinion, correcting the teacher (with usually incorrect information, I might add), telling a story that has very little relevance, talking bad about others (students and professors), and talking among themselves.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Getting my credits to transfer were a nightmare as were my mother's. If we didn't call/email them every day, they did not work on it. In fact, it took me a year to finally receive my credit. My mother and I mailed our transcripts to them at least twice each.

There is not a lot of course variety. The class times are all usually around the same times, so it makes committing to a schedule difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I work mostly online (except for the dreadful classes I go in person for) and the class-load is pretty manageable. For reference, I was in AP classes for the most part and I'm fairly good with computers. I find most of the classes online easy to navigate and easy to finish. The teachers are usually fairly flexible on letting you work ahead.

The writing center is the best feature on the campus and it is one of the few aspects of the school that's actually been of use to me.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are so few major options. The professors are fine for the most part. They never try to connect or actively attack students, in my experience. Everyone is there to do a certain task and leave.

The class registration process is fairly easy once you have it /explained/ to you, otherwise, you're out of luck. There is very few courses. Also, all classes are not offered online. It varies by course.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's two stories of classrooms, offices, and a computer room they call the library. The walls are white and the floors are tan. I sort of got a hospital vibe. It's one of the dreariest places I've ever been to.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There's a very strange printing policy (a dime per sheet or something like that?) and there's a grace period where it's paid for but it's far not enough for even a singular class.

The computers are so slow when I go to take my tests, I spend more time logging in than I do on the actual exam, this is not an exaggeration. I once sat waiting on a computer to log on and when I finally had enough, I switched to another. The next one ran slower than a normal computer but still, faster than what I was on. Anyway, I finished my test and the computer was /still/ trying to log on and I know I was there at least forty-five minutes.

The wifi isn't bad for Richmond. It's still slow and gives out whenever the wind blows wrong but I end up using my phone for research in class rather than the computer.

If you love yourself/have the money, I would suggest using your computer from home (if you need it in class) or at home, since most students don't bring computers to class and the older teachers get mad if you're on it. That's the other thing, no one on the staff (unless they're tech or tech teachers) really understand how to use the computers. So don't count on them to help you.

Also if you use the wrong browser (which is every one of them except firefox) during a test on an Ivy Tech computer, it will refuse to submit your test/quiz/final/etc.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is going well for me so far, this is just my first semester though. I have 3 online classes and 1 class at the connersville campus. No problems yet anyway..

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Compared to other schools this is the cheapest option in this area.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I have only went to the connersville campus so far and there is nothing there but classrooms. It is alright, just there to get my degree and they do have activities for students in richmond to participate in. It is just a regular school, nothing spcial.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything up to this point has went very smooth and easy for me

College Sophomore

Career Services: I am not quiet sure yet because I am just entering into college.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have not taken any online classes. Maybe later I could try.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Well the only thing I can give a review at this time would be the registration process. Everything was fine until the day I had to be at the school for my group advising and I was 5 min. late. They would not let me go ahead and get my group advising in and my classes scheduled because of 5 min. they rescheduled for 2 weeks following. Yes I was five minutes late but they didn't ask why. I am a single mother of three and I am homeless and depending on others right now for transportation. My ride that was taking me got into an accident on there way to pick me and my kids up and that is why I was late. It was very hard for me to get there then. Could be harder the next time. But I will not give up.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I can not at this time give an honest an accurate review because I do not start attending classes until January 2014.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: From where I have been on the campus there plenty of resources available. A lot of spaces to just relax in the quiet and study and its very warm and inviting it doesn't make you want to fall asleep why you are sitting there.
