The professors/instructors are very professional and fun. Which makes learning the criteria easier to understand. The curriculum, again, is really great. They teach us things that we will actually be learning in a workplace. The registration process, for me, was SUPER EASY! Whereas other schools that I have applied to before made it so difficult that I just didn't want to continue to register. I love the fact that they offer free tutoring to the students. It shows that they care about us students and want us to succeed rather than just take our money.

The massage therapist program is excellent. Very intense course load for anatomy, but this is necessary to have an understanding of the human body! This is especially important to work in a chiropractice office or sports medicine facility with injuries. Applying this knowledge to use hands-on useis crucial. The 2nd half of every class is dedicated to hands-on massage with other students. Job recruiters visit the school for massages themselves to see if they can find the right employee.

Small student/teacher ratio, so we get a lot of great one-on-one coaching.

Because of the way the Massage Therapy program is structured, the class remains the same, which really promotes a feeling of family.

I would say the workload is about average for most college level classes; they don't overload you, but you will be studying. :)

The curriculum used in my program is very educatioonal and easy to read, and many of the textbooks even come with videos to watch along with just reading, which is very helpful!

The facilities are compact without being tight, which is a nice break from my last campus where I had to hike for miles to get to my next class (literally!).

the faculty make it a point to introduce the students to prospective employers, and network early on in the program as well, which makes job hunting much less stressful.
