5 College Junior

Student Body: I feel that my class has developed into a team and that we really enjoy being together.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Our school has "the most affordable tuition of any private four-year college in the Capital District." I appreciate the fact that they offer excellent Associate's degrees, so that I can change my career more quickly, with less expense. I have had great difficulty with the financial aid process, but I think that is my own lack of understanding. I was blindsided by this semester's bill; I was under the impression that the financial aid I applied for last August would cover the entire year. I am still unsure about the reason for that experience, but I imagine that my own financial ineptitude was the cause. The financial aid office is always willing to give me advise and point me back on the right path. I think a simple form with clear instructions and deadlines would help someone like me.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have had the head of the department try to "create" a class for me, in a time slot that would work with my schedule. It was not necessary in the end, but I greatly appreciated the effort. I was shocked that he would do something for like that for one student! I feel that all the professors have this attitude toward us.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I appreciate the way professors bend over backwards to accommodate every student, are willing to listen to our individual needs, and to endeavor to work with us to accomplish our goals.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Maria College is great. The professors are so helpful and if you are having any difficulties of any kind, they are willing to help. I am so glad I chose this school.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Maria College is a tough school, but I am there to learn. The workload can be intense at times and I know this will pay off in the long run.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: They offer the best nursing program in my area. The professors are very respectful. If I need help, they are always there to give advice and offer tips on how to make the learning process a little easier.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: This school has no dorms. Some nursing students I know rent apartments. As far as the library and other parts of the school, they offer everything a student needs.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Before I got my laptop, I did a lot of my assignments at Maria. They have everything you need for all your homework assignments.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Maria College went through step-by-step process with me. I did get some financial aid. I will have a lot of student loans when I graduate.

4 College Junior

Career Services: From the research that I have done about Maria College is that many hospitals will higher a Maria College student pretty quickly. I also was told that to transfer credits to another college is pretty simple. I am still in my freshman year.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't done any online courses, but other students tell me it's great.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The students range from all backgrounds, black, brown, white, poor, middle-class, rich. I love this. It gives me a great opportunity to learn about the different backgrounds from all the students.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are several buildings on this campus. There is one part of the campus which is rather unique called the Marian Hall. The architecture of this building is very beautiful. It was built in the 1960s. Maria College has excellent professors and smaller class sizes which I love.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is all races, gender, and age. There are a lot of older students in class with younger students and it makes classroom interesting. There are a lot of students who are full time workers as well and the students manage to do very well.

5 College Junior

Facilities: What sets this school from other schools in this region is that they have the occupational therapy assistant program. there are people that drive hours away to get to this program every other weekend because this is the only college that offers it. I also love the way the professors make sure that each student is eligible for employment after completion of the program.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My credits were easily transferred from University of Phoenix. I received an associates in Health administration so a lot of the credits were in the healthcare field and it coincided with the current occupational therapy program that I am currently in. The flexibility of the classes/curriculum is excellent. If they did not have the weekend college, it would be hard for me to be successful in this program.

3 College Junior

Career Services: This college is now becoming a 4 year college so there is not a higher level than associates or some programs like nursing, psychology and health sciences there are a 4 year degree.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not taken an online course for the program that I am in. All the classes that I have taken are in campus.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think tuition can be less that what it is since it is a small private school. Since I pay out of pocket and do not receive any financial aid, it is a little bit expensive. But what I appreciate about the school they are willing to work out a payment plan with the students so the students can attend the college.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school is not a huge university so there really is not an athletic center. But they do have free yoga, zumba and other exercise courses for anyone that wants to participate. the library is extremely useful and have a lot of books that is pertaining specifically to the college programs. the school is currently getting more recognition for its program so it is attracting a lot of students. I believe in time the school will have more resources.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are a few computer labs in the school as well as a learning center. I utilize the learning center as much as possible. the learning center has computers and books as well as staff to help with any computer information. the staff is also there if help is needed with APA writing format or if student needs help in writing paper. Along with the few computer labs that are available, the computer has wireless access as well. The printing on campus is excellent. we are aloud to print anything that is pertaining to our assignments with no cost to the students.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The workload is fair but also challenging at the same time. the professors are excellent at explaining what needs to be done for each assignment. the program i am currently in is an excellent program and have great potential for growth.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The academics offered at the college is a small handful, but who ever applies to the school knows what they want to get into.

The school has great options in registering for classes. registration can be done online and as well as in person. the school is also very accommodating to students that work and have a family. The school has the traditional day classes as well as evening and weekend courses. The school's flexibility on scheduling makes it possible for almost anyone to achieve their goals in an education.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel Maria college is like a small community. The professors and the students are all one. A lot of the professors there are alumni of the school and they know what it takes to make it in the school. The professors really hard for the students to do well and make it. My professor who is also the chairman of the department of my program that I am currently in, makes it his duty for students to do well and make sure that they have the best chance in employment after completion of the program. I highly recommend this school.
