Academic Flexibility: Luckily all the credits I had earned at my previous college had transferred to Ivy Tech, and also my academic advisor has made a point to make sure that the credits I am obtaining now will transfer to the college I want to attend after I graduate. Most of the professors I have had, have been really flexible with homework but not so much on absents or being late to class. They are not as strict at the college I had attended previously, but some teachers offered extra credit for not missing any classed; so that gave me motivation to have perfect attendance.

Campus Resources: The campus resources are average for a community college. I believe that there isn't enough parking spaces for the students. Although, the campus does award each student $5.00 in free printing at the beginning of each semester, which is helpful. The library is probably my favorite studying area because it is so serene and a big area; there is usually sufficient space between you and another student.

The campus does provide many activities, such as; free karate classes, pop corn day, multiple book fairs, and other fun physical activities to try and get the students involved with campus life.

Although, my college does not have a gym or a fitness center, workout place or any athletic teams. Ivy Tech does have a great art building with many art shows and galas.

Online Courses: The online course that I took was fairly simple. The instructor gave us students a weeks worth of material and assignments, along with discussion boards and textbook readings. The class was very easy with the material the instructor provided, such as; examples, videos, illustrations. I enjoyed taking my online class the most, actually because I got the opportunity of doing the work on my own time schedule, as long as the work was submitted by the due date of Sunday night. I actually learned quite a bit of new information from the class, that is helpful for my degree of choice and retained more information.

The professor was helpful with new students whom hadn't utilized the online blackboard before. She also did weekly activities where the students would write blogs over the material we read in the text book and then we would have to reply to two other students posts, also. So it was a neat and productive way for us students to try and get to know each other. Other than that online class, I currently haven't taken another one. Although, I did so good in the first one that I signed up for an online class in my fall semester.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am fortunate to receive financial aid, in which helps with almost half of my tuition, but I am a very persistent on completing scholarships and every opportunity to lower the costs of college. The college text books at my college are very expensive, as I'm sure are other colleges. However, one thing I dislike about my college and the tuition is if a student takes an online class, they have to pay for a "technology fee" and "internet fee"; both which is eighty dollars, it seems like the student is being charged twice for the same thing. The financial aid office has been of big help to me this year. They helped me step by step, to filing my aid, to accepting the money, and explaining how I can use the money in the bookstore. I also do receive monetary help from my mother, to cover the final tuition costs after financial aid. I am very lucky to have a parent that is able and willing to help provide for my education and future. Although, I do complete scholarships and was granted a Ivy Tech grant for first year students. Thus far, I am happy with the education I am receiving for the amount I contribute towards my tuition and other college costs.

Academic Experience: The Academics offered at my school is a good selection. However, it is not as diverse as most schools because most students attend Ivy Tech to achieve their general studies and then transfer to another college that is better suited for them and their major of interest. I have had very great professors that were thorough with their material and syllabus, and elaborated on subjects students misunderstood, and also made themselves available during their office hours and via e-mail. Recently, I picked up a paper that had ideas of how to better a students study habits. I followed the advise listed and it not only improved my grades but also the amount of material I learned and retained. In my philosophy class, me and a couple of other girls organized a study group; in which each of us completed a certain task (vocabulary cards, outlines, etc) and it helped us better understand the material and also have a group discussion about how the other students viewed and interpreted the material.

Academic Experience: My major of interest is psychology and it has always been that, I have not once changed it. It is a little bit of a let down that my college does not offer psychology as a degree major. Although, they do provide a wide range of degrees in which they do offer. At the time, my academic advisor, professors, mentors and tutors are helping me succeed in the classes I am attending, so that I can graduate early and begin my real passion of psychology. The college I attend offers many programs to assist students, they offer an online messaging system for students who have questions, every student is appointed an advisor, in which they can make appointments with and e-mail, as well as the Student Success Center, which is a tutoring center. The Student Success Center offers multiple subjects for tutoring, and sometimes more than one tutor in a subject at a time. Also, the tutoring center has extended their math tutoring to online seminars on Sunday nights, to help the students that can not make it to the center in the hours their subject is being offered.

Career Services: The quality of services at my school are awesome. I do intend on furthering my education in psychology after I graduate from my school. I was pretty bummed out at first when I realized that Ivy Tech did not offer a major in psychology; although they do provide a diverse course selection. I have never personally entered into the career center, however I do see pictures on the bulletin board of current students doing internships with people in their field of study. I know that my college does offer to help students find a career in their degree choice and help them set out a plan for the future; not only their educational future but also their career and work future. I believe my school does above average in striving to make sure the students succeed in school and their education, but also their possible educational goals and careers.

Student Body: There is a big diversity of the student body, ranging from age, ethnicity, parents, handicapped, transfer students, and religiously. I believe that I was welcomed by the staff at Ivy Tech and the students. I have never had an altercation with any of the students or know of any students disappointed because they were mistreated. I have made friends in my classes and exchanged numbers with them; so we can advise in each other for homework questions, met with some and had a study group before a test, and went to the computer lab with them to do homework individually. There isn't anyone in any of the classes that I have attended that seemed to have a hard time adjusting to the environment in Ivy Tech College. Because every student is so different it makes it easy for students to not become outcasts, for whatever reasons. The teachers take time helping each student, that needs help, equally. In the time I have attended this college, I have never felt intimidated by any of my co-students. However, there is only one "club" at this school, and it is a sorority. I believe there should be a bigger range of clubs for students to be able to choose from.

Overall Experience: When I transferred to Ivy Tech Community College from Indiana University Southeast, it was in the summer of this year. The faculty was very assisting and helped me through the entire enrollment process to meeting with my academic advisor. Before I attended Ivy Tech, I had taken a two year break and when I decided to return to college not only did the teachers, staff, and advisors help me with my questions but also took their time to assist me to adjusting to a new college. Also, Ivy Tech provides a Student Success Center that is available often for tutoring purposes. I visited the success center twice, once for help on a history paper, and again with help on a section in my math course. The tutors were very patient and helpful. Near the end of the fall semester the Student Success Center, made math tutoring available online on Sundays, for the students that couldn't attend at campus. Since I have transferred to Ivy Tech, I have a 3.7 GPA and have accumulated almost 20 credits. I believe it is because of the college staff, tutors, volunteers, and assistance that I have been able to maintain better and healthier studying habits and have raised my grades as tremendously as I have. My academic advisor, works with students who plan to transfer to a college after graduating with an associates degree. She is always available for me to reach; by e-mail, phone, or walk in visits in her office. She has aided me by giving me the tools and information I need to know and use to achieve my goals of graduating and transferring to another college to complete my degree in psychology. She has also made sure that the classes I take will transfer to the colleges I am considering. I now have high hopes of my education in the future and my possible career choices and plans, and I believe Ivy Tech Community College deserves and adequate amount of credit for helping me reach my goals and my success as a first year student.
