Career Services: Most of the classes transfer to other schools, but some don't. It's a good thing to keep an eye on, depending on where/if you end up transferring.

Overall Experience: A good number of classes offered, and I wish I could have taken more. I can't say enough good about the professors. The class sizes are normally pretty small, ranging from about 6 students to maybe 22.

Overall Experience: The people working in the career services center are always very nice and willing to help. There are often employers on campus looking to find people, as well.

Academic Experience: The fine arts program is awesome. I learned so much being there, and had amazing teachers.

Overall Experience: Receiving my fine arts degree here was a great choice. I was hesitant at first to commit to a community college, but found that the professors are nothing but wonderful. I had a great assortment of teachers, both in the arts department and otherwise. Every single one of them was very understanding when it came to students' problems and were passionate about their teaching. The class sizes weren't overwhelmingly large, and most of the other students are very nice. The campus is small and easy to navigate, too. Great experience!

Academic Flexibility: My experience at this school has been very hassle free and I don't remember ever being frustrated about anything.

Online Courses: I was nervous when I found out a majority of my classes would be online last semester, but all my nerves were assuaged by the simplicity and straightforwardness of the technology used by Ivy Tech. I had to deal with two unique databases, or forums. One for AH classes, and one for normal classes. Both were very easy to use and made the class fun ad engaging. The professors were always very easy to reach and were helpful. Even the professors that I never met face to face treated me like a promising student. Any discussion boards between my peers and I were carried out with maturity and professionalism. Also, the registration process was a breeze!

Career Services: The post-grad services at Ivy Tech are great, and there are many transfer schools to choose from that will accept all credits from Ivy Tech. The career center offers free tests and evaluations to help students find their ideal career.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I take a combination of American Honors (AH) classes and regular classes at Ivy Tech. Every professor I have had so far has been helpful, encouraging, and passionate about their subject. The quality of the courses and professors has surprised thus far by being first rate. Also, Ivy Tech offers an extensive variety of courses. For instance, they offer Library Science classes that will eventually count toward my major when I transfer. The class sizes are also ideal. The largest class I have attended included no more than 20 students which allows for more one on one attention from the professor.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from Ivy Tech is amazing. It increases your chances of acceptance to a transfer school tenfold. Also, this school is great about teaching students to network, therefore increasing job/internship prospects. Also, Ivy Tech plays host to biannual job fairs. The recruiting quality of employers on campus is the best I've seen so far.

Academic Experience: I am in the American Honors Program at Ivy Tech, and I am currently pursuing an Associates Degree in General Studies. The thing about Ivy Tech is that a large fraction of the students there are just getting their General Studies until they figure out what they really want to do. At first, I thought there would be negative stigma around it, like it was just glorified high school, but Ivy Tech treats you like you are important and heading toward greatness no matter what. The AH program has the best advisers in the school, and the AH faculty are very passionate about their subjects. They are all very encouraging and they work together to help students learn to teach themselves. It's called a flipped-classroom, where the students learn the lessons mostly on their own at home and then come to class to discuss and elaborate on new concepts and facts. My workload is challenging, but the support that Ivy Tech lends me through great advisers has helped me get through it.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: When I first came to Ivy Tech, I had no clue what I wanted to do with my future. My advisers and professors were extremely encouraging and helpful. I have learned so much about myself and about what to expect in my future educational endeavors. I can honestly say that I don't know where I'd be without Ivy Tech.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes and teachers were good! They weren't boring they were great! They helped a lot and they taught so many things! They were fun and easy to get along with the teachers

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers and counselors helped out a lot. They cared and they would ask you what career you wanted and if you didn't know they would give you advice and help on how to choose

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: It would've been awesome if I studied more but I didn't I tried but not too hard. One thing I regret is not trying. Harder in school

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school was okay. It wasn't the best experience but I was able to make new friends and they are just as weird as me. Some people thought they were cool or popular but some were just annoying.

Online Courses: The online class experience I had with this school is their honors college called "American Honors." It is a separate platform used for specifically honors courses. It is very flexible where you can take the class at home or in your office. You were on the webcam twice a week with maximum of 10 students. Instead of your professor lecturing that specific days topic..as a student you have to read that topic before class and actually know it. Then the class just discusses that topic and the students and the professor are able to engage more into the actual topic. The work load to me was "busy work," writing papers and discussion forms each week for each online class you are in is a lot of work. Overall online class are very nice, because it gives you a little more flexibility where as traditional classes you have to be there face to face at a specific time and place.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Back in high school I struggled with math. When I came to this college and went to my first math class I was very nervous and did not know what to expect out of the class. All of the math professors I had here at Ivy Tech really enjoyed their job and explained the problems to a point I was able to get A's in math, which is a pretty big deal for someone who's struggled in that category for years!! Just that one class encouraged me to push harder in all of my other classes. This school has a wide range of classes for everyone, it's taught traditional and also there are online classes. The class sizes are small so you have that one on one connection with the students and professor. There is no confusion and seems to be very organized.

Academic Experience: As a medical assistant major it is a tougher course load due to the A&P and Medical Terminology Courses. It is pure memorization and you HAVE to make time to study efficiently to do well on the exams. The grading scale for this particular program is also harder...a 92% is considered a B. Where s as an 80%-85% is considered a C. 79% and below is not acceptable for this program. You must study 2 hours per credit hour you are taking in a semester, some may require more. The good news is the professors encourage study groups and have open study sessions at different times for everyone to attend. Going to your professors office hours is very crucial, it shows that you are a serious student and that you want to do well in not only the class but succeed in your future career.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Professors I have had here really enjoy their job and want to see their students succeed. They push you to work harder and are there for extra help when needed. They are very flexible with student schedules (as long as you give them a 2 week heads up!) If anyone struggles going to school, this is the school I will recommend to go to. They make sure that you are staying on track to graduate with your degree!

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I've been able to schedule my classes exactly how I have wanted to and transferring schools has been a breeze. So far everything has gone over very well.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: I personally do not do well with online course and have notoriously received a lower grade in every course I have taken online. I avoid them because they not only assign a lot more homework than traditional classes, bu it is much easier to miss an assignment due date.

3 College Senior

Career Services: The school does a good job preparing you to interview and act responsible in a job, but I wish they required an internship or some sort hands on learning experience for students to get practical applications of their degree before they are sent off to find a job.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Overall they make sure you are a well rounded student. I would have enjoyed some more career focused classes, but overall I think I am coming out with a good education.
