3 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is kinda confusing on what I need exactly for my career.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are easier, but you dont really get to the real college experience.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: my overall experience so far has been good, and I look forward to the future at Cisco

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: All of the classes I am taking now should be able to transfer to a larger university. However, I am only a freshman and I took dual credit english in high school through a community college and that transferred to my college now. It was not too difficult to transfer these english credits, I just did not know if they had successfully transferred for like a couple months due to horrible communication.

Online Courses: Online classes at Cisco are nice because you can do the work at your own pace. The only thing you really need to worry about is turning everything in on time. These classes are much easier to do well in because the workload is way smaller compared to normal classes. Although, the professor/student relationship is not very good. The professors don't usually like to be involved that much in discussions or assignments other than grading them.

2 College Junior

Career Services: I am at a junior college and would not feel good about getting a job after I get my associates. I have no idea if we even have a career center on campus that would actually be useful in preparing us to go out into the work force but we might have one.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of my courses have been relatively easy to earn an "A" without really studying too much. The best professor I had was my psychology professor and she actually taught us new things during lecture. She was more interactive too so the learning environment was boosted. There are not very many courses that are offered at Cisco and the classes are not big what so ever. The most I have had in a class is about 50.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would not like to get a job with my degree from Cisco because it is a small school that does not really prepare you for the real world in educational ways. I don't even think we have a career center on campus to help us in making resumes for potential jobs. Then again it is only a junior college so I guess that's ok.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is not difficult to be a kinesiology major at Cisco because the professors are not very difficult. The classes I need to take for my major so far have been unexpectedly easy and hardly challenged me to excel to learn more. The facilities in Cisco are very old and rather outdated. We do not have the privilege of new equipment for chemistry labs or biology.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is a great stepping stone for students who are struggling academically but are still student athletes. The professors cater to these students and make the curriculum easy to understand so that they can be eligible to play their respective sport. For me, the academics are not difficult enough. They do not challenge me to be a better student, so looking back at that I would have chosen a different school for academics. However, this was the only school who wanted me to continue playing soccer at a higher level so I went to Cisco to save money for my first two years of college.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I go to a community college. They have great starting prices for you to get your basics knocked out. The faculty and staff members are also great. They let you choose from morning or evening classes which is also pretty great.

Academic Flexibility: The only frustration I have encountered was with an online class that I had not had the chance to become familiar with yet at the time. I was on a school-sponsored trip and I requested to take an exam earlier or later than its due date and ended up having the exam postponed for the entire class. However, after feeling awful, I learned how to manage my time more efficiently and never that problem again. Other than that one instance, Cisco College has been more than accommodating to my success and a student.

Overall Experience: Four out of five stars is what I would rate my overall experience... so far. My school is unique in that the atmosphere is unlike any other school I have been inside. Cisco College is up to date when it comes to technology and resources and I would choose my school again if I could do it all over because it has served me extremely well and I am taking so much more, educationally, from this place than I could have ever bargained for. It has also restored my faith in not only the educational system, but in myself as a student.

Overall Experience: I would give Cisco College four out of five stars. I think their programs are beautifully and efficiently built to serve their students. As far as recruitment goes, I think most of the recruiters who visit are from universities. I have not seen a career center at the Abilene campus, though it may be at the Cisco campus.

Online Courses: Personally, I absolutely love the fact that Cisco College uses Canvas for their online courses. It is simple and user-friendly, making it exceptionally simple to register for online classes. I find Cisco College's courses to actually be quite fun as I am a person who values knowing what is coming next. I have a great relationship with my professor and he is extremely quick in responding to emails. He provides us with a manageable workload and makes it very easy to follow along by providing notes every week. Aside, there is not much peer-to-peer interaction other than the required weekly discussions.

Student Body: In terms of diversity, I think that the student body is great. However, when there is too much diversity among a group of people, it makes it harder to connect with others. We have many foreign students and the wealth between the family's of two students varies significantly. Much like many countries, I feel as though Cisco does not have a wide middle class. A description of a typical student at my school would be an average-graded student with hopes to transfer to a university in the future.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I believe that my education at Cisco College is worth every penny that I have had to pay out of pocket. The courses are in-depth and the professors are one-of-a-kind. The financial aid office assisted me to the best of their ability and were able to answer all of my questions. Tips that I would give about getting financial aid at Cisco include applying on time, knowing your resources (specifically where the financial aid office is and who to talk to), and not giving up.

Career Services: Considering it is only a two year school, Cisco College does not provide many resources when it comes to placement after graduation. I have not spoken to any alumni either.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Unfortunately, Cisco College does not offer my major, which is Geology. However, I am currently in the beginning stages of my degree so, in that respect, Cisco provides wonderfully-molded basic courses. The workload is more than enough to allow my mind to absorb the information I am being taught and the counselors on campus have already offered to assist me with completing my Associate's Degree in Geology even though it is not offered at Cisco College.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My professors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Upon applying for school, I dreaded having to go through the registration process. However, I came to find out through the help of the faculty that registration was almost painstakingly simple. When it comes to study options and the programs offered at Cisco College, there are multiple study groups and tutors available as needed to students. I feel very comfortable in knowing that, when I need it, help is there.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I feel as though, between the Cisco College campus in Cisco, Texas as well as the one in Abilene, Texas, all bases in terms of resources have been covered. The faculty has been nothing but exceptional in assisting my studies in every way possible. My professors have shown time and time again that they truly have my best interest at heart by constantly going above and beyond to make sure that I am receiving the highest quality of education Cisco College has to offer.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I liked taking a online course, but it was only for one class. I was always busy with taking notes and focusing on this class. I also had another class online but I dropped it after the second week. I really did not understand what was going on. I think online courses are good because you can still interact with the students and the professor when you message them. When you are registering for classes, its always good to check what is going on in your profile. I am glad that you can go in yourself and fix your schedule if you need too.
