3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I wasn't overly impressed with the Criminal Justice program. I got my general credits out of the way and that's about all that Firelands was good for.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I always have liked my professors. However, the classes themselves aren't that great. I got through them but I didn't necessarily enjoy them.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I didn't have any issues.

College Senior

Online Courses: Haven't taken any online courses

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: People are mostly friendly there and I haven't had any problems.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I didn't really have any problems getting my financial aid and my questions were all answered.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: I thought I would learn better being in a traditional classroom setting, so I was wasn't sure about it when I had to take an online course. I realized I learn better when I read it rather than hearing it. You have to be dedicated to a schedule so that all assignments, discussions and tests are done before the deadline. I spent at least six hours a week reading and studying the textbook and completing the work in it, as well as posting on the discussion board and reading other students' posts. There were also the online lectures to listen to as well as the website work. The only peer interaction was when I responded to someone elses post. It wasn't a problem to communicate with the instructor if I had a question.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: It is surrounded by cornfields. They do not have a huge list of classes and the two year degrees that can be earned are limited because of the small size of the campus. It is meant to be a school to earn an associates degree, or just get started in a college career before you transfer to a larger campus or school that offers more. Because it is only a four building campus, there really isn't room to socialize much on campus.

College Freshman

Career Services: As I am not a postgraduate, I do not know anything about it. I do not plan on attending postgraduate school.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education I am receiving is well worth the amount I am paying. It is not an expensive school. All I had to do was fill out a FAFSA online and it went to the schools' financial aid office and everything was taken care of. I received grants and student loans.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: They have a nice computer lab and I have never seen every computer occupied. The internet service is fast and reliable. They have Microsoft Office suite installed on every computer if you need it to complete work for a class. Although most work is turned in via the school website, you are able to print documents for a reasonable price. I haven't had a problem using my laptop on campus. I prefer to use my laptop and printer at home because I do most of my work between 7 and 12 PM and school is closed by then. Also, the school has limited hours on Saturdays and is closed on Sundays. I am not extremely computer savvy but there is always someone in the computer lab who can show you how to do anything.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Firelands is a very small campus and there is no student housing. I like the fact that I do not have to walk far to my classroom buildings. We do not have athletics at the campus. There is a small student center area near the vendeteria. The library is rather small and I have not used it at all. I think I have more books in storage than the school library does. There are activities on campus, but I do not participate in them. I am not your traditional student as I am in my forties. I am not interested in the traditional young college student life living in a dorm on campus and hanging out with friends. If I were to attend anything at all, I would prefer to attend with students in my own age group.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There wasn't a problem transferring the credits I earned over twenty years ago. Registration was quick and easy. My guidance counselor told me what classes I had to take for the first and second semesters. We worked together on creating a class schedule which left me the flexibility to work. There were not any hassles or frustrations with the process.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: There is a pretty good mix of majors at my school. I am still working on my freshman required courses and do not know much about my major yet. The last time I was in school, nobody had a computer, we went to the library to do research for a paper and typed it up on an old manual typewriter. I would not say that anything about my program is unique. I think there is a reasonable workload which helps as you study the curriculum. Everything you need to succeed is right there on campus as well as help and guidance. I do not know of any intern opportunities at this point because I am not far enough into my studies to be interned.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Registration for classes is simple as long as you schedule well before the semester begins. Most of the professors are friendly, personable and willing to help. They have a command of the curriculum and seem to enjoy their work. I have not been overloaded with work in any subject. Any work that we do only helps us to remember the subject matter and does not go off on a tangent. There are classes which can be taken online such as Medical Terminology which I am taking this semester and I enjoyed it. I suppose there are study groups, but I have never sought to become a part of one.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: There is a diversity of students, but I do not know their backgrounds. Most are in their early twenties and because I am old enough to be their mother, we do not have much in common aside from being in the same classroom. We also do not generally talk outside the classroom unless we are working on a project together. I feel accepted there and only feel challenged by the difficulty of memorizing so much information.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers are willing to work with you because of special circumstances and are more than willing to answer questions and help. There are tutors available for every subject and at times you can just walk into the learning center to get help right away.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have had a very good experience at this school. Most teachers will do anything to get you where you need to be, however some teachers are extremely unorganized, making it hard to do the work provided.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Workload is good and workable. Professors are always ready to help you in any way possible and registration is very easy to do. Curriculum is average; not many times are offered to take a particular course.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Most teachers are very flexible and let you decide your fate for the course. They understand work, weather, and child care issues, so they do their best to work around it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at this school. Some of my teachers can be a little too crazy and strict and my program (which is new this year) can be very unorganized. However, many of my teachers and classes have been outstandingly beneficial to me and my studies.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is very cheap and I most definitely get my money's worth. However, books are costly on campus (almost to an extreme). Financial aid sometimes can be a hassle; I transferred and they wouldn't allow my financial aid to transfer with my credits. After they took 2 weeks to relay this information to me, the deadline to submit financial aid information was too late.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Being an off-campus campus, many facilities are above average in display and convenience. There are many places to study and when the weather is warmer, there is a beautiful area behind campus that holds a pond, a path, and many peaceful, serene study areas. The advisors try to help in every way possible, but need to work on people skills. The campus life is vibrant and interactive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are a lot of campus resources available to me. We have a teaching and learning center where you can be a tutor or a tutee; you can also make up tests here. We have a technology center which works as a computer lab and technological help center for personal computers. Printing is available with a small fee. However, I think some of the workers could have better information to give and make a better effort to help a student in need.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are few campus activities in the winter-time. However, speeches and presentations are available for viewing. Once the weather gets warmer, the campus is much more involved with the students. The library is very useful and the librarians go above and beyond to help in any way. There is a gym available, but difficult to use because a certain crowd takes it over. The lounge area is a nice place to relax before or in between classes and many activities are held there.
