Far superior to any other college I've attended. The courses that are taught ready the student for the workplace. The last couple months of the program is dedicated to externships that the college arranges for each student. The student accepts the job, completes the hours, completes the program, obtains the certificate, and enters the workplace. Many times, the place where the externship was completed is a starting job for the new graduate.
During the externship, the career centre helps the student build a resume.
I've never known anything like it! :D

The first thing that comes to mind is the small classrooms and campus. The smaller classes create more one on one time between the teacher and student, which is very effective in learning the necessary materials for success. The smaller campus creates a welcome, relaxed environment that suppresses intimidation that new students may feel when starting at a new college. The geographic location of the college is a very good choice in that it is in a major city (all necessities are at the fingertips) but not downtown. It has more of a serene country feel that induces clear-minded, serious continuing education; as opposed to a continuous nightlife, frat/sorority club dominating, high crime rate college town. :)

Constantly Changing and Unstable – In the 3terms I've been here, my career services advisor has been changed 3times. As of the moment, my current one hasn't even reached out to me to let me know that they will be working with me. It makes me nervous and have doubts about finding a job after I complete the program here!
