4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Lots of Diversity – Here at Aims there is many different types of people. There are people of all ages and of all ethnicities. Many students have kids and jobs.

1 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Trouble Getting Office Assistance – When i first applied for financial aid when i started school, despite my consistant attempts to get into contact with someone other than the front desk clerk, i never recieved any sort of feedback as to what was causing the hold up and what i needed to do to clear things up. I started my attemts with Aims financial aid in november 2010. It was not until august of 2011 that i finally got ahold of someone in the financial aid office who took the time to look into my issues and they reported that the person who i had been assigned to had retired and apparently decided in the last few months on the job to not bother with doing their work. I finally did get my financial aid issues looked into and resolved.

Student Body: There is a great amount of diversity at the college and many activities are offered to support this diversity.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Student Center – This was really great and there are always people around to help with questions. When that person is unsure of something they ask others to make sure they could find out the right answer and point you in the right direction.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Class Flexibility – I really liked how most classes were flexible and well explained the first day of class. The teachers were also great and easy to work with.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The computer network is great! I have had not\ problems with the computer labs or network.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Not My Favorite – I have only taken one online class and from that experience it was not so good. We had to do a group activity which is difficult with an online class. Everything else was pretty good.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The value of the education that i am receiving from aims community college is very well worth the tuition that i am paying. To get financial aid from my school i would suggest that if your young make sure you have someone to help you out with the process. And even point you in the right direction because their advisers don't seem to care.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: As a whole my school is very helpful to me for their hours of operations. When enrolling into this school and still even to today i feel that there is a problem with the student advisers.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Real Life Skills – Automotive Collision Technology is a secure field. People are keeping their cars longer and want them to look good. I feel confident in the skills I am learning.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tought for Me – I have a hard time paying my tuition and fees. Thanks to a financial aid adviser I only got $555 from the Pell grant this year instead of the $1700 I was expecting. Tuition is still much less than the other Automotive trades schools.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Enjoying Every Minute – The work environment is great. New facility, modern equipment, small class sizes. Teachers are spread thin. Especially the part time ones. That makes learning a little more difficult. Still a great school.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Post Grad Services – I must admit I have not fully examined the post-grad service yet. I do feel the community center at Aims is awesome. They offer a wide variety of student mentors and tutors. The library and computer center is open most of the time and the staff is very helpful and interested in my success.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Medical Terminology Online Quizzes – I enjoy the opportunity to take quizzes from the comfort of my home office. There is enough time allotted to complete each quiz and a response is provided immediately telling me my grade and I appreciate that. The only draw back to the online course would be that I do not have the opportunity to print the quiz for review for studying for the cumulative final test.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My first encounter with the office for financial aid left me with answers that were unclear. I listened and presented my questions from a different angle and still was provided with unclear answers and a piece of paper to go home and try to figure out. I was expecting someone to help me maneuver through the financial aid process. I am 53 years old and I felt somewhat intimidated with the aspect of entering college when at this age. One of the hurdles for me was to figure out how I was going to complete the necessary hours for a full semester requirement through the TAA grant, and try to find a job when my unemployment insurance ran out. I am hoping to be able to obtain a scholarships to help with living expenses so that I can concentrate fully on my classes and the study time needed to be a successful student. When I left the office, I was very disappointed and felt left to my own to figure out how to do that.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I don't feel that that they do what would be best for the student. There are students like myself who are trying to go to school full time work full time as well as my wife doing the same thing working and going to school. Also the way the Aims financial aid is set up you cannot use any of your expected funding there at the book store. meaning three a month into my semester I'm just barley getting the rest of the books I couldn't afford before. I think there could be changes to the system to allow the students to get their needed supplies.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: High Quality – I have heard people said that after they finished two years at Aims. They could find a good job with their certificates. However, I have not much about this experience.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: First Time Attending College – Actually, I am a new student at Aims. I took the first semester last years and I got a really good grade. However, I have not taken any online class yet. Maybe I will take some online classes in the future, but I think they are also good and flexible.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great College for International Students and Instate Students – At the first time when I attended Aims Community College, I was an international student. Everything seemed to be hard for me because I was completely new. I took three ESL classes with a couple professors. They are very nice and friendly with students. After that, I was able to communicate easier of using English with people around. The classes are built and decorated really logic for studying. Now, I am US resident, and I come to Aims to get my computer degree in the near future. Afterward, I think Aims community college is a really good college for me and other people.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Really Really Diverse. Because Aims is a 2 year school, many students are non traditional students - older parents trying to go back to school, businesspeople learning foreign languages, and young adults getting a start on college classes.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I Have Only Taken 1 Online Class. The teacher was really helpful, since I had never taken an online class before.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I really love Aims, the class sizes are small, and the professors really know what they are teaching about. I really wish Aims was a 4 year school!

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are a lot of students that have the same major as me. Currently almost all of the students that I have known are interested in the teaching program. They say that there is a good program that helps those students that want to be part of this program. There is a lot of help for us.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: SO far my experience in Aims has been good. All of the instructor help there studenst and give the material that is neeeded for class. There are a lot of study groups that students can assist to. Also there is tutoring for those students that have trouble in classes. the staff at Aims is Friendly and they are always willing to help.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Comfortable Environment – There are a lot of places to hang out, eat, and relax on campus. The Ed Beaty Hall is the coolest. There is music always playing from the Aims radio and comfortable places to sit and eat, do homework, or talk with friends.
