4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: My school offers free tutoring in the student center on almost any subject needed. They are very good about helping out students who need a little extra help.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Its Good. Make sure you do your financial early. Because if not, you may have to pay out of pocket.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Could Be Better – They don't have enough openings in programs and the teachers act like they only want to help certain people. sigh..

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: The employees that work with financial aid, admissions, and the advisers are very unprofessional. They never answer their phone and when they do they do so unprofessionally. They aren't up to date with their services. They need help.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Just Taking Core Classes. I will be only using ATC to get core classes out of the way.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Diverse in All Ways Possible! The thing about ATC I love the most would have to be the student/faculty diversity. I have become acquainted with people of every ethnicity, age, religion, and sexuality. Being around a mix of people from every background makes for quite a melting pot.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Content, but Time for Change. I've attended ATC since Fall '09, and I'v enjoyed my time there. I would prefer more accessible parking (and more of it), but overall, my experience has been good. I will be transferring to Chattahoochee Tech in the upcoming spring semester, due to a recent move.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Everthing is good at this college, the only areas where students might receive more help is when they need help in the way of help with their class work or when they want to register for certain classes. Other than this I cannot fault this college.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe I have achieved more from this college than I ever did going to any other school or college I attended. I believe this college is very helpful to all its students, whilst thanks to this college the way I learn now and my understanding of how I learn is better than ever. I have nothing other than praise for this college.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: 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.

2 College Junior

Online Courses: Hated the Online Environment – Although it's great on gas mileage, that's the only thing going for the online classes at ATC. I'd expected online lectures, active discussion forums, and more freedom to press forward when I wasn't working and pull back when I was. Instead, I got a blue screen with lotsa words. There were no lectures, just the book. The "quizzes" had due dates that were inconvenient for me (Wed & Fri after working as a house painter all day). I hated the loss of knowing the teachers' values and beliefs, their personal emphases. I took the first psych class online successfully, but the second one was impossible for me to complete while working. As shy as I am, I even hated the lack of interaction with other students. I remember another nursing student at another school talking about posting to forums during psych online, but we didn't even do that.

Academic Experience: 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 & Physiology I & 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.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: my over all experience at ATC has been very good. I enjoy attending ATC, the curriculum that they offer is very good, and I believe that they will prepare me accurately for the future. ATC makes it easy to attend college financially. They really care about the students. I would definitely choose ATC again for another degree.

2 College Freshman

Career Services: I haven't really seen any Alumni interaction on campus. When I graduate from Athens Tech I hope to be able to give back.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The student body is very diverse and a lot of the students are very focused. A lot of the programs require very high grade point averages so students take classes very seriously. It's fun to see lots of the same people in your classes and at the Student Center.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors at Athens Technical College are knowledgeable on the subjects. In the field that I am studying- Health Sciences- the professors are less lenient and expect a high level of attention and studying.
The curriculum is decided by the Department Head and there is little leniency in changing the order of things. All Final Exams are decided upon by the Department Head as well. I didn't really like this as some professors may only have touched on a specific portion of a chapter and it shows up on the final in more detail than we had learned.
The registration process is long because you have to go and see or at least email your advisor in order to get a QUAC number. This QUAC number enables you to register for classes. The Health Sciences classes are hard to get because a majority of the students at Athens Tech are there for Nursing/PA assistants/ Dental Techs. There is a lot of competition in the classes as everyone is trying to make straight A's.

The Nursing program, in particular, is very difficult to get accepted in to. They only look at 5 classes- English, Math, A and P I, A and P II, and Microbiology. All 5 need to be A's to be a shoe- in. You also take an NLN examination which tests your knoweledge of Physics, English, Algebra, Chemistry, etc.

Campus Resources: Athens Tech is awful! If you're a transient student, go somewhere else! All the classes are booked and the people who work in registrar are terrible! I was hung up on 3 times today being transferred to another line. Go to Gainesville unless you can devote hours trying to avoid voice mails and awful people who work on the admissions and registrar office! Waste of time and moeny. If you can get in a class, that's great but if any problem arises, you are screwed! Waste of application money. I'll gladly pay my tuition elsewhere!

Student Body: Medium Sized – Well this is my first time at a tech school. This isent a big campus I think its medium sized. I am just getting to know every one. With were I take my classes at Iget to see all of the other first year students almost all . So the people that I see every day I can relate to. I am taking learning support classes, so are the people I see every day. Some people i see more than others.I Think the atmosphire is good and positive for higher learning.I say the student body is medium. Sometimes that is just right.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not Enough – I completed my fasa online. It did not take long to go through the process. I was told only that hope would pay for me to go to school.I was also told that they would pay for my books. When Igot the actual hope check it was only for one hundred dollars. I did not have any books that cheap. So the school has a loan program, where the school loans you a hundred dollars to pay for books. That is good and all but I am unemployed with 3 children. If I don't pay this loanback I won't be allowed to register for winter classes. Ison't know what Iam going to do. The only thing that I know to do is beg for the money.I can't afford tomiss out on any semesters or days.I have 3 small children loooking up tome to provide for themso I can't let them down.Financial aid was quick but it wasen't enough money!

Campus Resources: My School – This is a verry adutl atmosphere. You dont have to worry about gossip,hearing loud coursing.I think the people here are more focused because they are a little older than universitys. When I get to school every day I come to learn. The fact that were alittle older means on one will try to block any ones progress.The class size is also smaller than usual universitys. So that means more one on one time with your professors befor or after a class. There is free tutoring to those in need of help.The library is open every dar but sunday.You can use the computers as long as you need to.You can make color copies if you need to. It is allways peacefull and quite when every one is studing.That is my school.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Online Classes – I love online classes because it allows me the freedom of doing my work on my own time. It helps alot when you have a family and small children! Online classes is something that everyone should try.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Network Issues – The computers on campus are wonderful, the network is good as well and their printers work good too. The only issue I have is that printing is not allowed in alot of the classrooms. If you need to print then you have to go the library where they charger you per page!

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: First off, Mrs. Burton in financial aid has helped me tremendously throughout my time at Athens Technical College, but of course, financial aid has glitches. E-mails stating tuition due are not sent out in an adequate amount of time for students or the parents of students to come up with money in enough time before tuition is due. The e-mails are usually sent out three days in advance. I have had things happen in which I was never notified about through e-mail or postal mail. In short, I wish the school system notified students on subject matters better than they have been doing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Nice Campus – The Athens Tech campus is very accessible. The buildings are all new or newly renovated. There are multiple resources available to all students studying all fields. I am very pleased with the campus.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My college offers a 2 for 2 program. I go to Athens Tech for 2 years then transfer into my education classes at Piedmont College. This program is one of the main reasons why I chose Athens Technical College as my current school.
