5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: It truly isn't bad just some students use colleges to get money and then they withdrawal their classes to get money. What students don't know is it will catch up to them one day and then what will they do?

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: It has been so convenient even when I have questions off campus I email my teacher and they email me back within 24 hours and answer anything I needed help with.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: I am actually taking 3 online classes and they are very helpful, easy and I love them. It's not hard but you have to have a good attention span or if you don't you wont succeed and watch out for due dates.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: I truly have no idea about that but there good about anything they do.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: They're more helpful than some other schools and I love going there.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: They help you with so much. If you have questions, comments, or concerns they're there to help or answer anything. They have worked with me so much.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am taking my prerequisites right now but when I get in the program I am really excited about that.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I AM NOT in the program yet, waiting to see

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Many classes are specific to the school and do not transfer, most professors are great, registration is easy, workload ok if you don't have a job, Chem tutor is worthless.

1 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Hated the online, dropped the class, no really able to ask questions when really need to....in class is way to go hate to see this go away

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: would choose the school again, some instructors are cocky, that needs to change. Tell ya not going to test in area and then they do. Whole sections were on own study then a test...if wanted online would have done it that way

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: seems ok, need update some of science labs, art area need better facility

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Seems all good, have heard some African Americans complain about discrimination, although I have not seen that happen

3 College Freshman

Career Services: My instructor told a company about me, which in turn contacted me. I told him if he knew of any job openings to let me know. Being the only tech center in the area, a lot of employers will contact the school and ask, anybody looking for a job?

4 College Freshman

Student Body: The people that I interact with are pretty similar to me. They are working adults, except I think I am the only person paying for my classes out of pocket, with no repayment from my employer. I haven't met anybody who thinks they are superior to anybody else. I only see people who are taking the same classes I am when I go in to do test, and labs. Most of the time if I am waiting for a test to be graded, the instructor will have me pull up a chair, and we will all sit and converse while he grades the test, likewise if I am getting a test graded.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Our school is a technology center part of the main school. I don't go to the main campus. The campus I do go to is pretty awesome. We have a welding lab, that teaches everything from soldering to T.I.G. welding ( which I hope to do in the fall.) There is a robotics lab. I am going to finish with robotics, I have looked over the curriculum for it, and I cant wait to get there. It teaches how to program the robots, and how to fix them if they break. We have an electrical lab. A lot of students are taking electrical courses to be electricians. I am going to take classes for P.L.C. which is taught in the electrical lab. I am currently in Industrial Millwright courses, which teaches everything mechanical. I have taken labs for hydraulics, and pneumatics, pulled apart an air compressor, and I am currently learning about shaft alignments between machines, and motor's. When I get to my lab I get to use a laser shaft aligner, to align such machines. It is all really laid back and relaxed. When I was doing the hydraulics courses, another student needed the machine, at the same time I did. So we worked on the labs together, taking turns setting it up, and recording the information needed.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did get hit with a fee I wasn't expecting. I had a pell grant last year, and the person that signed me up for my fall 2013 semester read my paper work wrong, and signed me up for more classes then I was allotted that semester. I didn't find out until I went to sign up for summer 2013 classes. I ended having to pay the school $300.00+ to cover the classes not covered by my pell grant. There is a company across the street from where I am going to school that have employees enrolled in the same classes I am taking. It is a pretty well known company, so between that, and the fact that my instructor recommended me to a company for what I am going to school for I am very confident in the education I am receiving.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: From the time I enrolled to now, the faculty have been patient, and friendly. My instructor is always glad to see me though I feel a majority of the time I really hammer him with questions. He has always had answers, and explanations for what I ask him.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The greatest thing about my school is everything is done at my pace. I don't have lectures that I have to sit through. A lot of what I am learning right now is from a book. Understanding how things go together, and what principles make them work. When I feel I have a grasp on the subject I go to school, and complete a lab that puts you right in the middle of applying everything you just read about. My favorite was the hydraulics courses. They had a hydraulic pump hooked up, and you got to operate every kind of hydraulic valve discussed. Then you would hook several together and operate them. This is a lot like how a machine runs in the field, several valves, and cylinders hooked together, and timed to perform different operations to a part.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am currently studying machine shaft alignment. Sometimes I will call a company that does what it is I am studying to get field knowledge of the subject. I talked to the president of a company about shaft alignment, and he was impressed about what I am studying, and the fact that my book had real life scenario's in it to teach what you will be doing in the field.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The one problem that I see is that once you are set in a clinical group there is NO changing it. I do understand why it is the way it is, but it makes it hard for single parents trying to arrange child care when your clinical time is at night.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I have only taken one online course and the instructor was good. She was very passionate about the topic.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I wish the library had more study room available or that we could reserve them. Many times we go in there and there is only one student in a room and there are several us that want/need to study together.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computers are very slow and I have a hard time connect to the WiFi.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There are mainly women in my program so this question is difficult to answer.
