4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of classes and schedules has always been convenient for me. I have had little to no trouble working around my work and home life with my classes. The only hassles are when there is a class available, but limited seating. That can be frustrating because you may not always want to just go with whatever professor because you may know whether or not you like their style of teaching or not. I went to the joint vocational school the last 2 years of high school and many of the classes I took during that time were worth college credits and when I went to my current school all of the credits I was told would transfer did because the curriculum was based off of my schools now.

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences are probably my labs for anatomy. I always learn a lot and I think it is very interesting and important to get hands on experience for learning. This school is unique because it is a technical school and offers shorter schooling than a lot of other schools. I wouldn't choose my school again because of the lack of good communication from my advisers. Had my advisers really looked at my information they could have told me I could have applied for my program a long time ago, instead I had to figure it out my own and ask a lot of other people what I needed to do. Things haven't been explained the best at times and it has really affected the amount of schooling I am taking and the amount of time it has taken. Also maybe just to get a higher degree of education since I have to spend 4+ years working for a 2-year degree.

Overall Experience: I have had pretty good experience with most of my professors. I have had a few that were not on my favorites list as well. There are some professors who have a way of teaching that just does not work for me, and because of that it has affected my learning. I am not someone who can just read something and retain it, so if a professor mainly teaches from a powerpoint presentation but really does not give more, I have a hard time learning from that. For the most part I have had great professors though, just a few who did not seem very helpful when needed. The quality of a course in my opinion can be measured by how well a professor can convey what they are teaching their students. There is a pretty good variety of courses and the styles are usually the same, but not everyone teaches them as good well as we might hope. I have never had an issue with class sizes, sometimes they are a little big, but by the middle of the term many once full seats have opened up, making for a smaller group size overall.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As I stated before, this school hosts a job-fair for many different employers looking for potential employees. The quality of the alumni network seems to be okay, but I am not particularly sure if it really is or not unless you graduate. The campus does offer some help with career services which is nice, but not necessarily something everyone may use.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I personally am not a fan of online courses. I have taken two or three and I did fine, but I do not enjoy the lack of interaction. My courses didn't have any at all, I never saw my professor or any of my other classmates, which is not really a big deal, but I do a lot better learning when I am taught by someone else and can learn with others. The workload was not bad at all, I think it was just right, I do like the online classes because I can do everything from home, but I do miss the interaction. I did not speak to my professor much unless there was an issue with an assignment or I had a question, otherwise it was pretty cut and dry.

Student Body: There is not really one typical answer for this section. There are a lot of different people who attend this school, all kinds of economic and ethnic differences. There are clubs for different people, there is an LGBT group and flyers all over campus for people who would like to meet others and be more diverse. I think the average student in in mid to late twenties or thirties. There are a lot of younger students, but there are a lot of people who are coming back throughout their lives to continue their education or find a new career too. Everybody seems to be pretty accepting there, I think it may be hard for someone who is from another country and may not speak strong English because not very many people are bi-lingual so there may be some language barrier, but overall it is pretty great and diverse.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Overall, the tuition for my school is pretty fair. I think the fact that the price per credit hour has almost doubled since I first attended is a little steep, but even with that said, the amount of tuition due is usually pretty fair, but it is harder to pay for with just a pell-grant even, let alone for those paying out of pocket. I have had some bad experience with the financial aid department some years ago because they didn't want to help me fill out my FAFSA and I did something incorrect and ended up having to pay for my whole semester and the cost of books and materials out of pocket. Even recently, sometimes the people working aren't helpful at all and I feel rushed off. I do appreciate the available help and offers for some financial aid through grants and scholarships, it just seems that some days they want to help more than others in the financial aid department at the college I attend.

Career Services: Overall I think the post-grad services at our school are okay. Every so often the school hosts a job-fair and many employers for all sorts of jobs come hoping to find new employees who have attended or are attending this school.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are a variety of different academics offered at the college I attend, but there could be more. It is also a school for 2-year degrees, which isn't a bad thing, but some workplaces would prefer a higher education. The professors in my experience and from the experiences of others I know, are overall knowledgeable of their specific field and can convey what is being taught in a well fashioned manner so that most students can walk out of the room saying they learned something that day. The class registration can be good or bad, it just depends on who you are dealing with. Some of the advisers are great and very helpful, but some are not. There have been more than one occasions that and adviser made me feel like I was just another number and I ended up in classes I probably should have been advised not to take yet and ended up having to withdraw and try a different route (take another class to prepare for the class I had to withdraw from). Because the school is a technical school, special studies would probably have to be taken at another school that offers higher degrees of education, or just more options in education in general. I believe the program most affiliated with this school in the Nursing program, it seems to be the one program you find the most people aiming to land a spot in.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am currently taking my final classes that can be taken before the program I will be applying for, but most of them are things you can do in the program as well because they pertain to the information I would be learning, such as anatomy and physiology. The workload, in my opinion right now, is what's to be expected. There is a lot to take in in a short period of time and most of my professors do a pretty great job of teaching a lot in that short time. Some of the curriculum is difficult, but as long as you are working hard and studying, there is no reason to fail. The facilities are nice, and most are comfortable for everyone. I am currently an STNA and even just with that certification while I am in school is very helpful when looking for jobs.

Campus Resources: Most of the resources are pretty great at the college I attend. There are a lot of activities available that the school offers things to do if you have some free time. There are sports activities available for students interested too. There is a small gym area in one of the buildings that is nice, and the library that was recently build is beautiful and very useful and convenient when you need a quiet place to go.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Everyone is very helpful and friendly

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: They have a full gym, workout facilities, indoor student recreation area as well as several outdoor areas and an extensive library available. The campus is always well maintained and landscaping very well done.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Have only had one online class and it seemed like the technology could have been utilized much more effectively to instruct the course material

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Classes are easy to schedule and usually have adequate options to be able to suit most schedules for working students like myself.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Nursing program students receive priority registration when signing up for classes, seems like most of the campus looks up to those in the nursing uniform while walking in the halls/classrooms.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Instructors are generally helpful and will assist with any questions that students have even after classroom hours, at times the workload can be overbearing but I think that is generally the case in this setting.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Having some problems currently getting credits approved for certifications that I already currently hold so that I don't have to retake certain classes.

3 College Junior

Student Body: COTC has a very diverse student population from recent high school graduates to grandparents that are returning to school after decades and every racial/ethnic group is represented to some degree.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Nothing any different than any other place that I've dealt with?

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I really enjoy online classes. I have had very good experience with online classes.

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think the career center could use some improvement.

4 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Online classes you can go at your own pace. I like the idea that you can work a head.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: They really work hard to ensure that we are ready to jump into the work force when we are done.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is diversity at my college.
