Overall Experience: I can't believe I'm paying alot of money to go here, but it is the only college near me, there are gangs of black people everywhere, white people are to scared to go to the gym area where there is only black men on the basketball team, whenever I walk by, black girls are yelling racists comments to me, I called security, it took them 10 minutes to show up, they just tell me they will call the sheriff's office, and they said they don't appreciate me calling them about this problem, the white security woman with ugly red hair, pushed me down, and acted like it was a accident, then she was talking to a black girl in the gym, 2 minutes later, that black girl was giving me mean looks, aiken technical college is a terrible place

Overall Experience: I graduated from aiken techncal college in 1999 with a certificate in computer technology, I never got a job. I'm back again in 2011 trying the nursing program, all of the counselors are to busy to talk to me, a friend told me they will only let 40 people in the nursing program, there is about 300 people with me in the pre-nursing program, they won't even let me take the prerequisites classes before the nursing classes, I'm in classes preparing me for the prequisite classes, what makes this so bad is that this is the only college close to me, so I'm stuck here, there are gangs of black people everywhere, so most white people are to scared to even go near the basketball gym area where there is only black men on the team, whenever I walk by these black people, they are yelling racists comments to me, I called campus security, it took ten minutes for them to arrive, and they just say they will call the sheriff's office, the white woman security worker with ugly red hair, tried to push me down, and acted like it was a accident, she planned it out, she is racist against white people, she was talking to a black girl in the gym, 2 minutes later that black girl walked up to me, and gave me a mean look, this college is terrible

Tuition & Financial Aid: i think the fin. aid office dont really pay atten and knw what they are doing

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Some of the programs that ATC are some of the best in the country. ATC has some of the best teachers for any college. There is not much of a social scene. There are no dorms.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am not completely sure of how I like my school. Some people have no problem getting their information through the school's system. Most of the teachers care about their students. No class size is over thirty students. I have never attended a school function. I am not completely sure that ATC has enough educators and office personnel that care about getting people a future. I am not satisfied with this school experience.

Tuition & Financial Aid: My Experience With Finacial Aid – I have had a great experience with finacial aid it is has helped me to further my education without any interuptions. I hope that everyone would focus on all the finacial turns in life.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: Network Reliabililty – Most of the times the networking systems would go down. This is the part that frustrated me. when I need to finish up homework, check my grades and work assignments, the computer would either getting fixed or shuts down for a few hours. Sometimes I would get scared because I'm like ok well what do I tell my professor if I don't have my work.

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The Flexibilty of Classes – I chose Aiken Tech because the classes there are very flexible. Like if you have a job, a family, and other problems going on with you, Aiken Tech really understands and helps fits your class schedule with your life and work style.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: Being a Pre-Med Student – It's great being a pre-med student even though they don't carry my major, but I am still able to get my general studies classes out the way before I transfer. Overall I really am enjoying myself and like being a pre-med student.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: More Information – I wish my conusals would of told me I didnt have to take a study hall. I would of tookin something extra and even a second launguage but its to late now.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I Have taken 1 online course. It was a great experience because I could be anywhere. But I felt that I have to study a little harder than a traditional classroom class.

Career Services: The career service center helps students find jobs where they can apply the jobs skills and education they have learned.

Student Body: The student body at the school is a mixture between the younger generation and the older generation.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything went smoothly. The process did not take long and I was very satisfied with the amount that I received.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Classes Are Interesting – My classes are exactly pertaining to my major. Haven't had to take any classes that don't count for me! Some of the classes are a little difficult.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great School – The school is awesome and so much like home. The teacher's are great and the nursing program is amazing. I am learning so much there. I get the hands-on experience needed to be a nurse.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Very Relaxed Campus – The school has a variety of different activities. They have a gym and a lot of places to hang out in between classes. The school sells awesome food every day!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: So Far, So Good! I have only been a student for a few weeks but from my experiences, the students and staff are super friendly, helpful, and are there to learn.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel they can be more efficient with their time. I have been in there a few times and seen people talking to others when I was in need to get my paper work to go through so I could get my books for my classes. When I see things like this it upsets me because the one that was doing my paperwork was really busy and then one that was suppose to be helping her was the one that was talking to someone and holding a baby for 20 that I was in there and they wasnt talking about school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am ADD and all of my instructors since I have been back to school have been excellent. I really like everyone I had so far. Unfortunately I will be moving in the winter so I have to part with Aiken Tech. I would recommend Aiken Tech. to others. In fact, my daughter did get her Vet. Asst. certificate there and she really liked her teachers as well

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I really had a hard time trying to get ahold of someone when I was recooperating from surgery in the Summer of 2010 and at the time I was unable to drive to the school so therefore when I finally got to feeling better my paperwork was behind. I had to fight tooth and nail to get any answers. It is very frustrating because I sent several emails and I didnt get any replies. Therefore, when school started I had an assignment due that first thursday and wasnt able to get a textbook because I didnt have the money so I started off on the wrong foot. After going in the financial aid office everyday my financial aid finally went through.
The thing I am really upset about is the way Aiken Tech. is recruiting students from outside Aiken Tech. and not taking into consideration that (I feel) they should be catering more to the students they have at ATC. There are several students I know that are transferring out of ATC because we have so many outside ATC that are coming in and somehow have extremely high points to get in the program. I feel ATC should accept only so many from outside ATC a semester like they do with the students that are LPN's bridging over to RN. They only except, I believe, 7 each enroll time and I feel they need to accept majority from ATC in the program than they do outsiders. I hate to say it but it looks like a money issue because out of state students have to pay more. This is one reason why I'm not afraid to transfer to a different school because it almost seems like I might be waiting a long long time to get in the program than I should have to wait.

Campus Resources: Personal Computer – In my opinion, its's a lot easier to have your own personal computer because the computers are usually taken. The downfall to bringing your own computer is that you cannot connect to the school's network.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Payment Plan – One of the things that I like about my school is that they offer a payment plan for students who do not qualify for financial aid. They also have a similar plan for books.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: A Big Mixture – At my school there is a big mixture when it comes to age groups. There are students that are right out high school, students my age, as well as students who are senior citizens. The student body is very diverse and I love that.
