4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The libraries, computer centers, tutors, and instructors are all very helpful resources.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They do not handle the loan aspect of Financial Aid. I want this program too badly to let that defeat me; however, I am having a lot of issues trying to manage finances to still attend full time and support myself. That is my only complaint, but it is a huge obstacle.

4 College Junior

Career Services: That is one of the most reassuring aspects of Sowela: the career help provided by staff.

4 College Junior

Student Body: I believe everyone has one goal in mind: to succeed in their education. Race and other diverse concerns aren't really expressed. School is a place that separates us from the outside world to focus on our futures...and I do believe the majority share my sentiment.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major has its own building specifically designed because the plant industry needed more skilled laborers. The lab and everything is very modern and the materials we use are efficient and plentiful. I am excited to be starting in August at the PTECH building. The job opportunities with Sowela's help is a huge relief.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Sowela's staff are all very hands-on and involved with helping the students. They offer so many opportunities for careers as opposed to just jobs.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I do not take online couses but helped another student with hers and completely enjoyed the experience. Instructors are very hands-on and remain personal so that the setting is not that of a computer only.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience with the entire package deal has been very pleasant and encouraging.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sowela has a wonderful internship for my major, and they also help with job placement. That is my main stress reliever.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I am overly pleased with Sowela's Ptech program. I was very disheartened when I learned they did not issue loans, as I am a liad off single mother...but because this program is very important to me, I am praying and sticking with Sowela in hopes that my financial needs are met. The instructor, Financial Aid Dept, as well as Admissions dept were all so very helpful and friendly. I recommend Sowela Technial college to anyone.

College Junior

Career Services: we do not offer many post-grad services.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Depends on the class and instructor. Some classes are constantly being monitored and updated while others are barely touched by the instructor. Some instructors need coaxing to do their job. Some do not post grades and you never know how you're doing till the end of the semester.

Facilities: We have 2 new buildings and are finishing a new nursing building. We are growing each year.

3 College Junior
