3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: We need more time to make up lab time from missing it due to snow days and from when instructors were gone on training.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Everybody is really nice the teachers and the students all are very fun and creative.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: They have manufacturing shows where employers come in show what they make and talk about what work you'd be doing for them. There is a welding club. They help make and teach you how to make resumes.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am in the welding program. We have a plasma cutting table, a water jet machine and a bunch of other robotic welders at my school. I chose this program because there is a huge need for welders everywhere. The homework is not easy but the teachers are very helpful when you need them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have been enjoying my experience the shop is awesome the teachers very helpful. They are very friendly and the whole learning experience has been fun.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: As with any college, nothing is perfect. As a student, you have to be flexibleffective as well. My personal struggles come from being a parent in a household with two college students who are the parents and one infant. Between my fiancé's classes and mine, it makes it hard to find a baby sitter. As the core classes for the program are only offered during the day, we cannot make one parent a day student and one parent a night student. As we both are unemployed, daycare is not an option. In our city, daycare for an infant is about $300 per week. Because of this, we have to set up our classes alternating hours so we can bring our son to school and take turns between classes with him. If the core classes could be offered during the day and at night, I think it would help us out more. Our main struggle is when we have no choice but to schedule our classes over lapping. Then we have no choice but to bring our son to class with us.

Online Courses: I am personally not much of a fan of online courses as I prefer the class interactions in person. It is a part of my learning style. However, for our program, a few online courses are required to help us prepare for the real world. Not everything is done through person to person contact, and the online classes offer us the ability to learn how to communicate through the online world. As it is a controlled environment, it also offers us the ability to see how to handle things when they don't work out as you expect them to, and how to deal with each unique situation.

Career Services: We have the ability to stay in contact with our professors and the career center after we graduate. When our internship is finished, if we are not hired on by the firm we worked with, our head of the department will continue to help you find a job. Should that job not work out for you, you can always come back to the career center or our professors and they will continue to work with you on finding a job. We can explain to them what did not work out and what you need to inprove, and they will help improve yourself to become a better fit for a different firm.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our class size is twenty seven students to our program each year. This helps our law professors get to know us, our strengths and weaknesses, and help us build to become better in not only our studies, but in our daily lives.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The great thing about our school, is our paralegal program is American Bar Association certified. This gives us an edge in the Paralegal world on a competitive advantage. Through this certification, we are able to stand out when it comes to job placement and internships.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The Paralegal Studies field is demanding. When entering into this firld, it is extremely important to understand that studying the law is time consuming and if you don't plan on spending most of your freetime studying, this field is not for you. The workload starts out relatively small, as the program is designed to ensure you understand the basics to law. Once the basics are covered, the workload increases substantially, as it is designed to match a typical day at a law office. The curriculum is laid out by the American Bar Association. The curriculum is designed to cover everything you will need to know to be a successful paralegal. The facilities are laid out so that all the paralegal courses are held in one building. This building also includes a fairly large legal library that was kept up to date until 2012. The legal library from 2012 and forward is available to students through the internet. This is designed this way to ensure students can both find case study and laws through physical books, the old style, and online, the new style. At the end of the program, anot internship is required of all students to graduate. The professors are very accommodatiNguyen in helping you find a good fitting law office for you, and in doing so, hope to see the law office hire you upon finishing your internship. The success in job placement has been outstanding and promising!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am a brand new mother to an infant child, and I was extremely nervous about starting up school with an infant at home. When I started my first day of school, I came to realize that at 30 years old, I was in the median age group for my peers. There were fathers and mothers in my class. My professors, being parents themselves, we're happy to give me advice on how to make the two worlds clash and work together. One day, my baby sitter fell through as her own son was injured, and I couldn't find a sitter. My professor was more than accommodating as he told me to go ahead and bring my infant son to class. That is when you know your professors will take the proper measurements to help see you succeed. I just finished my first semester in the Paralegal program, and I earned a 4.0 for the semester. This experience has made me realize that Chippewa Valley Technical College really cares about their students and makes coming to class a joy.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: Online classes are nice to have because it gives students a chance to take classes when they cannot physically be available to be on campus. I have noticed that it is not always easy to submit assignments. Sometimes I have to frequent the computer lab at school to work on assignments because something is not supported by my personal computer. Asking questions about an assignment can be difficult because the teacher isn't always available when needed.
