The professors and staff are very personable and easy to talk to. They want to assist the students in every way possible, which is awesome! There are some issues with financial aid that make it slightly difficult to get the textbooks, but there are some copies in the library and Learning Resource Center. There are some awesome supports on campus for all sorts of academic as well as personal issues. It's easy to make friends here because the community and atmosphere at this college is so welcoming!

I have had the head of the department try to "create" a class for me, in a time slot that would work with my schedule. It was not necessary in the end, but I greatly appreciated the effort. I was shocked that he would do something for like that for one student! I feel that all the professors have this attitude toward us.

Our school has "the most affordable tuition of any private four-year college in the Capital District." I appreciate the fact that they offer excellent Associate's degrees, so that I can change my career more quickly, with less expense. I have had great difficulty with the financial aid process, but I think that is my own lack of understanding. I was blindsided by this semester's bill; I was under the impression that the financial aid I applied for last August would cover the entire year. I am still unsure about the reason for that experience, but I imagine that my own financial ineptitude was the cause. The financial aid office is always willing to give me advise and point me back on the right path. I think a simple form with clear instructions and deadlines would help someone like me.
