The education I received and am currently receiving through Colby Community College is fair. The teacher, Tina Schrick, that taught my LPN nursing year was one of the most inspirational, helpful, and admirable teachers and human beings I have ever met. She put so much of herself into the college and was interested in the students lives. The President, Seth Carter, also does a fantastic job communicating with the students and being active and participating in college events. The part of the college that I do not like is the financial aid department. They refuse to answer questions, return emails, or answer phone calls. They send out bills for things that have already been paid, try to make students pay money after financial aid has already been dispersed, and will not pay financial aid until late October or November. They have messed up multiple times on my personal account and are the reason I would not recommend any one who needs financial assistance to go to Colby.

I am very happy with my decision of coming to Colby community college to further my education in animal science and a minor in ag business. I have gotten so many opportunities at Colby community college that I would not have gotten at a university like for instance I am now artificial inseminated certified, I am an Resident Asistant, and I am going to have my CNA this spring.

The program I am in is really a two year program condensed into one year. There is a lot of hands on learning and the instructors are easy to talk to as well as are very knowledgeable. It is a lot of studying. You go to classes from 8:00 to 3:00 everyday and study the rest of the day. The facility is appropriate for what we need to learn and gives us the ability to practice on each other. We have 4 clinical throughout the program and that gives us experience in the real world as well as learning from someone else who has been working with that career for a while.
