There's ambassadors who basically help the student with any questions they have and other issues. They helped fix my laptop twice . They are usually creative with ideas , helpful, and very friendly. Most students get along despite having differences. However doesn't mean everyone likes each other, just means we can get along. I like how we have event for like holidays and activities. Prizes and raffles as well for the students, which is fun. Also we had an easter egg hunt this year for easter which was something new and fun. Everyone was excited including the instructors.

It was a great experience I have learned so much from my instructors and fellow peers. The classes were always fun, interesting,and done timely. What makes my college unique is their honesty, how close we are like a family, what we provide for our fellow students, and the environment . I'd choose my school again just because the positive attitude has for one another. To me the people in my class is like my family. Kaplan is an exceptional college that I'd recommend to anyone looking to further advance their knowledge, skills, and career.

I love it. The instructors and kaplan staff are very helpful, nice, and knowledgeable. The hours at my college is very reasonable and they help work around your schedule. The curriculum is neither easy nor hard it's the perfect amount. Next, the class registration is fairly easy and fun. The programs my college offers is MA,MP,MOS,HVAC-R. and computer support technician. The amount of time it takes to complete each program depends on your program. I'd recommend Kaplan to anybody looking to pursue their education in a career they will love.
