There are incredible professors here who really care about knowing the students interpersonally and helping launch them into success after graduation! The resources here are top-notch also. If you're looking for a job or worried about the look of your resume, the Career Resource Center is standing by to help you through that process. Overall, a really great school if you're willing to overlook the traditional college experience and focus on your academics.

Orientation Seminars – Metro offers individualized seminars at the new student orientation where students can decide which subjects they need more information or resources for. Financial aid being one of them where you can meet with counselors if needed and get further information on the financial aid process and student requirements. A lot of students find applying for financial aid intimidating especially at first, but with the right guide it's really not that bad! Especially now it's much easier when you apply online your given the option to transfer your tax information right into your fafsa application (which I think is the hardest part)

Professors are understanding and very organize! Every professors should and will have a syllabus on the first day of class which helps a lot. The curriculum at Metropolitan is very helpful. They have classes that meets the major the school have. However, I think it would be a lot better if they offer more classes and majors! The Advisers are also great and very helpful. They try their best every way to help out student. The registration process is a piece of cake when you get use to it. Everything is just a step-by-step process. It may confuse you at first but after you get use to it, everything will be understandable.
