4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I was able to drop a class before starting with no penalty. I have been able to get most of my pre-reqs done here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like that this school is close to my home and offers online classes. The registration process for classes and financial aid are somewhat lacking. The cost of tuition books and fees are outrageous but cheaper than a four year university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The course Ive taken have been challenging but doable. The teacher are great.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: N/A as I am an adult learner going to school to continue my current degree.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It has been great. Mostly very organized. I can see what is expected of me and when things are due and in what order. Teacher respond when questions are asked and teacher will even meet with you in person if needed. However, I have taken a couple of online course that the expectations are not very clear. Hard to demine due dates and what assignments need to be addressed because you have to dig through mountains of info to get to the details of the assignment requirements.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Diverse student population - respectful, tolerant, professional.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition and fee are sooooo much more expensive than the first time I went to school, 10 years ago. The process of getting help with financial aid is not the same either. There is very little one on one interaction. They just constantly refer you to the website to fill out paper work (that I have then found out I did not need)

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Not very applicable for me - I am an adult learner returning to advance my degree

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am attempting to transfer to a 4 year program . I am an RN taking classes toward the BSN program

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I like that online classes are offered but getting registered is a little crazing because of the student to staff ratio.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Herds of people. Filling out paperwork for financial assistance is difficult and tons of us need assistance. However, there are very few staff in Financial Aid that can help. They are overwhelmed with the mere numbers of students. There have been times I waited for hours several days in a row and was unable to get the help I needed. Getting registered is sometimes difficult as well because there is just not enough staff for the student population.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Athletic Centers: gym available to all students during certain times

Student Center: unavailable

Libraries: Sufficient with many comfortable chairs and study rooms

Campus Activities: 2 per year, horrible

Aesthetics: As good as it gets for community college

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are an abundant amount of resources on campus that really take to my interest. There is a lot to do on campus that lead you to meet new people, make new friends, and get to know the professors a bit more. The library and student center are convenient, especially because I work crazy hours, but their hours of operation are to suit the needs of people like me. I'm very pleased with everything this school has to offer and glad I get to be apart of it.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My experience has been great in the program so far. The administration office made me feel like I was not important and that they just wanted to sign me up and get me out of there. I had three different advisors and they all three said something different, so I was very confused on what to do at the start. I lost a few days at work because of classes, they have set times so I was not able to work around them. I cant get another job because I will not be able to get all my studies in and my schooling is more important. I know in the long run this will all pay off and I will be able to get through all this.

Campus Resources: The campus is small enough for everyone to find their way around school and they have signs outside to help people find their way. The student center has all the information you need about the school in it and also has people to talk with if you are lost and have questions. They do not have much of an athletic center, there is a gym and basketball court. There use to be a tennis court but they dug it up for more parking.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I know that ABtech offers plenty of extra help for all subjects, so students don't have just the teachers but also other helpers available. As far as I know the workloads and professors are about the same, there may be a few classes with harder material and more work. Every class and teacher will be different and have different expectations for students. I feel like ABtech is a great school to start off at. Most students do not know what they want to go to school for and going to a university without knowing is a good bad thing. They get the experience of being away from home and growing up but then also it can cause them to get in debt with school loans and being confused about school. Starting off small is better.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The Dental Assisting program is a wonderful program to be in. It is a one year program and you are able to start clinical in your second semester. I have learned a ton of material in just three months so far. The workload is a lot, but if you stay on top of the work then it will not pile on top of you. The curriculum is strict; being on time, not missing class, dressing appropriately, and call instructors if you can't make it to class. They are like this because it makes us ready for the real world and understanding responsibilities. The facility that we have is great we have a dental clinic with a lot of rooms to work in and plenty of materials for everyone. The job opportunities are fairly good because we get to work in offices the last two semesters and most of the offices hire you once you finish school or recommend you to another office if they are full.

Online Courses: The Spanish class I had online was great. The teacher interacted with us a lot and kept us up to date on everything. We had class discussions to be able to learn about one another and the workload was not as bad as I thought it would have been. She gave us plenty of time to complete our work and was very helpful. The registration process is the same as others but you have to jump on what class you want because they fill up fast and sometimes you are on a wait list. The only thing that is different from a classroom and online is having to teach yourself some of the material, verses a teacher really teaching you in class.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The Student Government Association (SGA) is responsible for legislative and executive authority in regards to student affairs. The SGA operates under the supervision of the Director of Student Life and Development and serves as the voice of the students in their relations with the officials of the college. They represent the voice of the student body to the college administration. Diversity is not an issues at Abtech, I feel like many people have overcome that issue but you do still have a select few that are not alright with it. I have not seen it happen at my school, but if it were to be an issue the SGA would definitely help take care of the issue.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Abtech is not a very big community college so the things that they have are small, but I feel like they do the best they can. The career center is helpful for students to be able to read about different jobs and ask questions to help them decide on what they might be interested in. I am not a hundred percent sure about the alumni network for Abtech. When you are in a program with clinical hours and observations, I think that is the best way for students to get a foot in the door for a potential job right after graduation.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do believe that the education I am receiving from the Dental program is definitely worth my tuition. The teachers are wonderful and I have already learned a lot in just three months so far. The financial aid office is a little unorganized, I feel like they do not show like they care as much as they should. It seems like they feel forced to do their jobs and are not happy. I personally feel like if you work in any office for school you should make the students feel comfortable and be more caring towards everyone. I was not able to receive financial aid this year, I got an award letter for $450 a semester. I could have taken out a loan, but I do not want to be in debt anymore then I already am.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid would cover everything. So it would not be a problem for paying books, tuition and classes.

5 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is like 3000 people. AB Tech is pretty diverse.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: They have activity days twice a semester.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The computers are free. If you want to rent out a laptop, you have to make sure you do not have any fees like book fees. But the printing job is kind of ridiculous. They charge you for that.
