Dr. Penny has taught me so much! She is a great professor and really cares about her students!

Class registration is a pain. We really need to know class schedules for the next semester way more in advance. Less than a month to the next semester is not ok. Most of us are still working in order to pay for our education, bosses need to know new availabilities as early as possible.

The workload is a little crazy at times. This past semester all off January we had tests. Most of which we had no lectures. We were attempting to learn so much material on our own that I'm not entirely sure we really retained things. The class consensus was that we would rather not have the December break. Let us have Christmas eve and Christmas day off, but other than that, keep us in school.

There is not much campus life. The food available is just out of a vending machine which has decent food but it is still out of the vending machine. The school could use real art not just Carrington advertisements. We are already there, there is no reason to keep advertising to us.

Unique opportunities include their high tech labs but their computer labs need work. The computers are SO SLOW! It takes around 15 minutes to get the computer going, that's not ok or efficient.

It is a great feeling to be apart of the PTA family. As a class we have become very close in a short amount of time. The program offers a lot, the workload is very difficult at times and the curriculum is fairly flexible when need be. The facilities are a little odd since we are in an old warehouse, but it works.

From what I have been told, there are many clinical opportunities we shall see soon enough!
