Quite a Roller Coaster! I spent two years in prep classes BEFORE being accepted into an ASSOCIATE degree nursing program; if I'd known that, I would have applied to a school that offered a bachelors. Those classes were either jokingly easy or offensively hard. All of the science classes have been extremely heavy for five-hour courses; I studied forty hours per week to make high A's in Anatomy &amp; Physiology I &amp; II-- (Fameree is nowhere near as good as he thinks he is, and I'd try Nichols if I had the choice to make over) -- Lifespan Development (Stennett was excellent), and Microbiology (Chambers was excellent).

My adviser, Diane Hodson, is amazingly friendly. The cashiers are patient and helpful. On the other hand, admissions were amazingly unhelpful, as were Financial Aid. I'm actually thinking of having a powwow with the president about the lackluster financial aid staff. I asked if they had any BOOKS that listed scholarship opportunities, and they looked at me as if I had three heads. By the time I found several nursing scholarships on my own, they were closed.

Adequate Resources – Overall, ATC is aesthetically pleasing. The resources are just above what's required. There IS NO cafeteria! The library is all business but adequately supplied. Labs are well supplied and maintained. Buildings and equipment are kept up-to-date, albeit the computer labs are getting some age. The student center is fairly robust. There are some activities and clubs, but no fitness facilities. The parking is a mess by 10 a.m. while parking spots are set aside (ie: sitting empty) for green vehicles and registered car poolers. The newest building boasts about it's green-ness on a dozen placards plastered all over it, but none of them say LEED-certified.

Intro to Psychology – This was my favorite online course because the instructor had everyting available on the home page and explained clearly how everything was to be done. She had easy-to-follow power point notes with sound, sort of like a lecture, all the links to practice quizzes and interesting articles. I very much enjoyed this online class. Plenty of time was alloted for assignments, quizzes, and exams, and she graded very fairly. It was great studying and taking exams in my own time. I was able to stay with my toddler while attending school! That was the best part for me.
