4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have a lot of flexibility with scheduling my classes, and my advisor is really helpful too.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I probably would choose a different school, that offered my actual major of choice, but the main reason why I chose to go back to Ivy-Tech, was because I am a prior student of that college.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are reasonable. The quality of some courses that, I have found are okay, but I have encountered some issues with some of my classes.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish I could find an internship. There has been no outlook in that area.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I prefer face-to-face courses and have always done better with traditional classes, but I am doing what I have to for the time being, due to we are all in the process of moving here soon.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I take online courses and don't use all of the services on blackboard.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I receive all of the necessary assistance, there is allowed and required for students at Ivy-Tech.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I don't use the current school's career services all that much really, but I have used this service at other prior schools.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I enjoy this college and am striving to do my very best here!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have some professors, who are not vey clear with their instructions and I have found some minor errors on the whole school's website, but other than that I haven't found major errors all that much really.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I have had no problems at all.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: My classes are very flexible because I work around my work schedule. Love my teachers they help you when you need help and will meet with you if extra help is needed. However, trying to get help with financial aid or if you need to talk to your adviser you have to jump through hoops to do anything. Some of the people have bad attitudes and don't want to help you at times.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: So far I have not had any problems with scheduling my classes. I can work easily around my schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Everything is very easy online. I like it especially because I get to work at my own speed and don't have to wait on anyone or have to sit down at a specific time. Blackboard is easy to use but the update added a lot of unnecessary features (like notifications??). Most of my teachers answer emails in a timely manner and are willing to adjust around things like family emergencies or vacations (if you give notice). I wish there were more online courses because it is effortless compared to in-person classes at Ivy Tech.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: No one really has any school spirit. No one cares about the school at all. It's straight to classes and straight to home/work. It's a fairly sad and boring experience.

For the social scene, there are movie nights, I hear. Now if anyone goes, that's another story.

1 College Sophomore

Student Body: The average student at Ivy Tech is from the town (as are their entire family tree it seems), white, super conservative, christian, homophobic, sexist, racist, and usually around 30-50 (particularly night classes). They are generally unfriendly if they do not know you. They are very clique-ish and will rarely speak to anyone outside of their circle of comfort. Particularly the male students will go out of their way to loudly disrupt the class by loudly stating their opinion, correcting the teacher (with usually incorrect information, I might add), telling a story that has very little relevance, talking bad about others (students and professors), and talking among themselves.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Getting my credits to transfer were a nightmare as were my mother's. If we didn't call/email them every day, they did not work on it. In fact, it took me a year to finally receive my credit. My mother and I mailed our transcripts to them at least twice each.

There is not a lot of course variety. The class times are all usually around the same times, so it makes committing to a schedule difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I work mostly online (except for the dreadful classes I go in person for) and the class-load is pretty manageable. For reference, I was in AP classes for the most part and I'm fairly good with computers. I find most of the classes online easy to navigate and easy to finish. The teachers are usually fairly flexible on letting you work ahead.

The writing center is the best feature on the campus and it is one of the few aspects of the school that's actually been of use to me.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are so few major options. The professors are fine for the most part. They never try to connect or actively attack students, in my experience. Everyone is there to do a certain task and leave.

The class registration process is fairly easy once you have it /explained/ to you, otherwise, you're out of luck. There is very few courses. Also, all classes are not offered online. It varies by course.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's two stories of classrooms, offices, and a computer room they call the library. The walls are white and the floors are tan. I sort of got a hospital vibe. It's one of the dreariest places I've ever been to.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There's a very strange printing policy (a dime per sheet or something like that?) and there's a grace period where it's paid for but it's far not enough for even a singular class.

The computers are so slow when I go to take my tests, I spend more time logging in than I do on the actual exam, this is not an exaggeration. I once sat waiting on a computer to log on and when I finally had enough, I switched to another. The next one ran slower than a normal computer but still, faster than what I was on. Anyway, I finished my test and the computer was /still/ trying to log on and I know I was there at least forty-five minutes.

The wifi isn't bad for Richmond. It's still slow and gives out whenever the wind blows wrong but I end up using my phone for research in class rather than the computer.

If you love yourself/have the money, I would suggest using your computer from home (if you need it in class) or at home, since most students don't bring computers to class and the older teachers get mad if you're on it. That's the other thing, no one on the staff (unless they're tech or tech teachers) really understand how to use the computers. So don't count on them to help you.

Also if you use the wrong browser (which is every one of them except firefox) during a test on an Ivy Tech computer, it will refuse to submit your test/quiz/final/etc.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is going well for me so far, this is just my first semester though. I have 3 online classes and 1 class at the connersville campus. No problems yet anyway..

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Compared to other schools this is the cheapest option in this area.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: I have only went to the connersville campus so far and there is nothing there but classrooms. It is alright, just there to get my degree and they do have activities for students in richmond to participate in. It is just a regular school, nothing spcial.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything up to this point has went very smooth and easy for me
