3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm in individualized studies with a leaning towards English. Unfortunately they really only have one major English teacher, and because he is on sabbatical right now I've had the devil of a time trying to get all of my technical electives before summer. They don't have a very wide variety of English classes, and they don't have their summer schedules out in time for me to see if I can take one final tech elective in that time rather than having to spend time and money on a class that I don't want to take. Also, what really irritated me was I was 19 out of 20 credits away from completing my technical electives and there was no way to just... shift something over so I didn't have to take another 3 credit class and waste more money.

Academic Experience: The academics offered here are okay. Not incredibly diverse, but then it is a very small school. Several of the teachers are very good at what they do, but since the departments like English and History only have one or two professors in them it's very difficult to have a wide variety of classes.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There are several different kinds of people who go to this school, all ranging from young to old. Everyone is pretty well included and there's no bullying or shunning of any kind that I've seen.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Over all I've enjoyed my time at this school. I have to admit that the last semester was a little trying because I got some really poor teachers, but in general I've learned a good amount, I've completed my classes without too much trouble, and I've gotten to like several of the teachers. A lot of the professors are very knowledgeable in their subjects and they try hard to work with their students to make sure their students get the most they can out of their classes.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition isn't bad, and the financial aid is easy enough to get. The time it takes them to disperse the financial aid, however, is ridiculous. I can't afford to buy my books before class starts because they get our financial aid to us like a week or two after the classes have begun.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: If I'd had to answer this question a year ago I would have been a lot more impressed with the school, but more and more lately I've found that a lot of the teachers who are chiefly online don't really care about their students as much, they don't work with their students as much, and they're a little lazier.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Depending on what you do at the college you've got great opportunities ahead of you. Considering we're one of the only schools that actually does band instrument repair classes, we've got a high turn out of students who take that course. We also have HFAC, and if you graduate with an HFAC degree you're more likely to get a job in that area.

Campus Resources: I went to get a tutor and the only availability for it was two hours that wont work for me..

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: I feel there is not a support system for students. I am/was struggling with a subject and i was told to figure it out. Not happy but i need to finish.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The campus has many good resources but the availability is too miniscule. Some things are walk in and some others take weeks just to get in.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: So far my experience has been really good. I actually praise this college to students of other colleges, I tell them how much they could save by switching and how concise it is.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't much knowledge on this subject but I do know that the career center has been successful in finding students the jobs they want and Southeast Tech has a high job rate.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My first assumption was that technical colleges such as Southeast Tech would be low grade and low tech but they are actually very professional and they upped my expectations.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is good for a technical college and all Minnesota State College tuition's are frozen so they stay the same for multiple years. Compared to other colleges in the area, Southeast Tech has quite decent tuition costs.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: This is a very, very small school, so it doesn't have the facilities larger schools such as the U of M may have. It doesn't have any athletic centers, nor does it have many campus activities. But to me that is fine. I'm not going because of the extras, I'm just going for my degree. It's got a good online library, though the physical library is a little lacking. The campus is always neat and clean and inviting, and really, that's all that matters.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: What I really love about this school is that it is a small school. You get to know the teachers a lot easier and most are willing to bend over backwards to help their students succeed. Another great thing about the school is that it is one of the very few schools that have an instrument repair program in the United States. People from all over come here just to learn the trade.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There is the LRC and a computer lab and usually they both always have enough seats open. The printing is free, which is great, and the wireless access is easy. I can bring my laptop if I want, but I usually never do because it's always so convenient to just hop on one of the faculty computers and get my business taken care of.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: All of the teachers I have dealt with, except one, have been wonderful and very accommodating. The faculty has been helpful with everything, and the classes are very flexible, which is important to me right now. I know that there are a few of my credits that can't transfer, which is why I am sticking out my two year degree here. It's a small campus and the classes are small, which is very nice.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: We have a computer lab and there always seems to be a computer open when you need one. Things work fast and though I don't really NEED a laptop there, if it became necessary, The internet is fast enough that it wouldn't be a big deal

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Band instrument repair is pretty specialized, so I think the tuition I pay is worth it. The ladies in financial aid are super nice and make the process crazy-easy

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Building Guitars – The guitar building and repair program is very extensive, covering all of the knowledge which a professional luthier is expected to know. Students start out learning the basics of the guitars construction and how to use the tools which are necessary to the building process. From there they learn parts of the guitar: how to maintain, fix, and build them. This all leads to the actual construction of the students' own guitars. The workload is manageable, and the professors offer help to students who struggle with the material covered.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Excellent Guitar Program – I chose to come to this school because of the guitar program, and so far it is everything that I had heard it was from friends/acquaintances and the overview of the program online. The professors who make up the guitar building and repair program are very competent, able to teach the material well, and work very well with the wide variety of backgrounds of students who enter the program.

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I feel I get more out of going to campus and taking the course compared to learning online. A lot of the teachers are more than willing to work with their students, but I still feel as if the personal touch is lacking.
I am not very good with managing my time, so if I am not expected to be somewhere it tends not to happen. Hence, I leave my online courses to the last minute causing less quality of work.
If you can't balance going to work and going to campus and are able to manage your time properly, then by all means. The classes online here seem to be wonderfully engaging - as much as they can be.
