1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: If i could give this school a lower grade then an F I would. I feel as if Im being robbed of an education, money, and I'm stuck. I pay the same amount as others do, but I recieve $1700 of my tuition and they recieve $3400 on theres. No matter what semester it is for the both of us everything adds up the same, but the college makes you think not, so they can collect the extra income themselves. Im not learning anything, I have to literally beat myself up to go, and I feel as if someone took advantage of me without any concequences. The Financial aid office is a joke as well. I went to two other community colleges and it was a breeze to do my financial aid. I turned in the paper work and my money arrived on time, without having a financial aid advisor contact me with questions, papers, and other nonsense. This college even has you too sign a paper to release your money to you, a week before your do it, and the paper is just a different worded one that you have already signed multiple times.

Career Services: This college usually places you into an intern position, in which they secure you a job in after graduation. Everything else listed is none exist as far as I know.

Online Courses: I would have to say they would get an b+ in this because there is no work load, professors and students interact each class (talking not learning or teaching), and the grading system is fair.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: This is somewhat hard to grade because the professors are very knowledgeable, however it would be nice if they used that knowlege to teach us what they know. The classes are very small with about 5 to 7 people. At registration they give you a list of majors, but how they teach all of the different types is beyond me. Especially when they have only 8 to 10 classes rooms in which a certain professor occupies. There isn't really any workload, or any sort of work that might make one think or learn something different then what they already know. I wish they had a counciling center, because I have medical, mental, and a few other health issues, but I have no where to turn to get the advise I need for help. Overall this school shouldn't be in practice.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: This school has a Mon-Thur and times range from 8am to 1pm and also they have 6pm to 9pm, no school on Friday. Most classes don't even have a policy for students who miss classes, this is most likely because they lack a professional level of teaching. This school has confused my paper work so much that i gave up on trying to transferring my credits, but when I registered it was easy with only one paper mix-up.

Academic Experience: Mountain State College has an internship and after graduating you are almost 100% guaranteed a job where you did your internship. The staff members are nice considering how they have to convince people to attend there to make a pay check.

1 College Junior

Campus Resources: I can't say much because there isn't really anything at this college, but money hungry thiefs. I am sure all the students believe they are out to make money, nothing more.

1 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network system is about the best thing they have a the school. However I would have to give it a D+ because of there lack of a real computer lab, library, and other places one could use a computer. The network and access is great.

1 College Junior

Campus Resources: My school's facilities are limited to a library, a computer lab, and a student center. The library is a room no bigger then the average persons front room, with 4 computers, a librarian desk, and very old book shelfs linining the inside wall. The computer lab is fairly remodeled, but as of today I still am not sure you can use the computer's unless you have class in the room. The student center is a lounge/cafeteria. It is also updated, however not worth the time to go to unless you was going to eat in there. We do have one campus activity, which is a game of bingo. You recieve a bingo card, read the new letter every week for numbers, once you get a bingo you win 25 bucks. If you are the first person to get a bingo.... Are school needs upgraded, it still looks as if it's in a 60s or 70's era.

2 College Junior

Student Body: At the school I attend there isn't any ethnic backgrounds, 98% are single mothers without employment or income. The students at my school are not very sociable with students they do not know. Most students clinge to others who they know. The students are very self-centered, discriminating, bias, and think negative on others not like them.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The main reason I chose the school was for the online courses. I knew if I had any problems I could go to the College and get help.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Great One on One. Our school the teachers will let online students come in and work with them on problems.

College Junior

Career Services: I have never been made aware of any career services after you graduate.

College Junior

Online Courses: Online Verus Tradtional – Online courses are convenient, because you don't have the commute or taking the time from family life and work schedule. I prefer traditional classrooms verus online courses. Traditional classes allows the student to have one on one commention and the student is able to learn from the lectures from the instructors. Students are able to ask the instructor questions if they do not understand. Personally I feel that as an online student you don't learn very much. It normally takes instructors days to answer questions regarding the material. Online courses are more convenient, but in a traditional class students are able to learn more about the material.
