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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

5 College Senior

Career Services: I transferred credits and I got accepted at Western Carolina University. I wish abtech had more like sports team and dorms or bible study

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: It doesn't have a sports team but it has intramurals. It would be nice if they had dorms because a lot of people live far out as Madison County to go to abtech.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Experience at ab tech was the best!!!!

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My experience has been great. The teachers and staff have worked around my schedule. If you need help, you have to ask first for help or they won't give it to you

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: If you are planning to transfer. Take the 44 core or the associate in arts and complete that. It is worth it.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: They had great academic programs like criminal justice and nursing. But if you want to go to psychology go do the associate in arts and then do your major. The instructors are awesome too. I would recommend some teachers that are great for basic courses. If you are going to take biology, take it with Mrs. Best-Kai. She does work online. I had her for ACA-115. She does essays for ACA. She is awesome. If you are going to take DMA take it with Mr. Wilson, he explains it a lot better. Mr. Wilson's work is mostly online.If you are going to take English 090, take it with Mr. Parsels. He does a lot of online work. His class is not so bad. If you are going to take ENG-111 take it with Mrs. Hickman, She will help you a lot and take her for Eng-114 if possible. She does a lot of essays.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I love ABTech. I can't wait to transfer to Western Carolina University. You make a lot of friends in college. A lot of people are mature. The teachers are nice too

Campus Resources: Printing is easy, and the librarians are there to help out if you get confused. You don't really need a personal computer on campus unless you really don't want to walk to a computer lab.

4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The classes are pretty flexible, and my adviser was really helpful in getting everything organized. All my credits from my previous college transferred except one.

3 College Student

Campus Quality: The facilities are ok. Sometimes things are a bit drab, but I really enjoy the artwork in the library. They change it out every so often and it gives the students something interesting to look at.
