5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Things are very convenient at Allen. Staff members and advisors are extremely helpful and are always willing to communicate with you about things that may be happening. Courses are flexible, as some of the courses can be taken on multiples campuses as well as in classrooms.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses at Allen are easy to navigate and you will have a good person to person relationship with your online professor by the end of the class. You participate in online discussion boards through the college with other students that are taking the class online and you will get to know those students as well as the semester goes on.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Transferring classes and credits to another college or university is easy! The staff in the business offices as well as your advisor work well with each other and with those from other universities. Allen has one of the best alumni networks I have been exposed to.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Each professor really puts forth an effort to get to know you on a personal level. The courses are only as hard as you make them with the exception of the science classes which are more difficult. Class sizes range from 10-20 students depending on the class.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are work studies available on campus as well as jobs that are available throughout town. The alumni are very involved in activities with current students.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are several advisors who specialize in my major and I really enjoy how the advisor you're put with strives to have a personal relationship with you.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Allen! Your professors truly want to get to know you as a person. They are deeply intrigued by who you are and what interests you, and they want to help you succeed. Allen is unique because it is difficult to find a group of peers that you really mesh with, but at Allen everyone is close. It's such a comfortable experience and I would do it all over again!

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Since I have two jobs, I have been able to work my schedule around my classes because most classes are in the mornings. Especially being able to take classes online, I was able to work my work schedule, soccer schedule, and class schedule around each other.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: It is nice to be able to take online courses with the teachers also being available on campus if I need them. These online classes help me work at a pace I set for myself and, with everything I am involved in, lets me do the work when I can as long as it is before the deadline. Also, teachers are very understanding and are willing to give you extra time if you have a valid reason to need an extension.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Our alumni program has a bunch of wonderful people that continue to come back and support the college in any way it can.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors are really understanding. I play a sport and they understand I can't always make it to class and they are very forgiving of that and willing to help me catch up.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Since this is a Community College, I will be getting my Associates degree which will take away my pre-requisites for the next step and push me closer to my degree in Secondary Education

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a secondary education major with an emphasis in mathematics. The program here has given me an insight to what teaching is all about at an early state. The advisor is great and really finds the best fit for your interests.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school really gave me that home away from home environment. It is easy to be involved in many different activities and the time flies by so fast. This school has prepared me for my future education and has given me the opportunity to meet so many great people that I can call my friends and my school family.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Class scheduling was a bit difficult because of the limited availability of classes (for example, I couldn't take a writing class I wanted to take because it was only offered at 1 time, and that was the same time as my biology lab).

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I really enjoyed my online class. Taking the course online allowed me to work at my own pace and complete as many of as few assignments in one day as I wanted to. I actually completed the entire course a week before it was due, and received a 96% in the course. This professor used a variety of assignments and teaching styles, so class was never boring. I'm taking another online class this semester because I enjoyed the last class so much.

2 College Junior

Career Services: There are basically no career services offered. Career information is provided on an individual student basis with that student's advisor.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are very small (my largest class had only 12-15 people in it, depending on how many decided to show up that day) and professors know everyone by name. Most class atmospheres are laid back. A decent variety of classes to choose from, considering how small the student body is.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the focus at Allen is on transferring, so there is not a lot of career-related information presented to us. However, the Ag department does a great job of bringing in presenters to tell us about our transfer options, and most of the other departments do a decent job as well.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Majors at Allen are very limited, since it is a community college. My major at Allen is agriculture, but ultimately in pursuing a career in agricultural communications. The Ag faculty is only 2 people, so you don't have a lot of choice in your advisor, and that means that all of your Ag classes will be with either one of the two teachers. Work is very easy, and my online Ag classes allowed me to work at my own pace.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Allen is a good school for the price you are paying. Student body is very small, so you get one on one interaction with your professors, but there is also a limited pool from which you can find friends. There isn't a whole lot to do in Iola, but the director of housing does a great job of working with local businesses to give us fun outings, such as $2 movie night, free bowling, etc. Overapl my experience at Allen has been satisfactory.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its a very good starting school.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Allen Community College so far has been a great experience for me! I cannot wait until I return there this fall. Most students participate in going to the sporting events to help cheer on the teams. My school is unique because not only are the students friendly and outgoing, the teachers and staff at the school help us students in many different ways! If I were to go back to last year when I was first selecting a college for my first year, I would not pick any other community college! This is simply because of the great environment and great vibes from the student activities to the classroom!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a very small school so you'll be on a first name basis with all of your teachers and you'll get to know just about everyone on campus. However, though you will learn a lot in many of the courses offered there are a few that you will take that you come out feeling like you've learn almost nothing in the semester you spent.

Overall Experience: I absolutely love taking online classes here. The teachers and faculty are more than willing to help and make sure you succeed in your studies. The online forum is easy to use and navigate. I was nervous about online classes but it was a really enjoyable experience.
