4 College Student

Overall Experience: My comp one and two teacher was the best English teacher I have ever had. She was very helpful and tried her hardest to help us succeed. I'm in love with this school because of how friendly the teachers are and how they make it feel like home. I have never been scared to ask any questions for them to help me.

Campus Resources: One of the best colleges in the state!

Academic Flexibility: I attended the same school so everything was there and transferred into my chosen program without problems. The LPN courses are different from academic courses and don't compute hours the same way so all though they are on my transcript they are not applicable to my work and goals of the present. I knew that and accepted it going in. I took English I and Psych I in 1990 and they were applied to my present program without problems.

I love the fact that everything was right there and it took little to nothing for me to register, they just activated my file and updated it as needed.

Overall Experience: Last semester, I really enjoyed my campus classes of English II and Beginning Algebra; the teachers were helpful, encouraging all to do better, and the interaction in class was fun. This semester I've rediscovered my interest in art and have enjoyed my Art Appreciation class, though its online.

Personally, I love the size of the school. Its a great place for transitioning into higher education without being overwhelming. I like the country setting of the campus, the size of the classes, and the friendliness of all the staff and students. Everybody encourages you and you don't feel out of place regardless of age.

I would choose the same school again simply because I don't feel out of place, I just fit in.

Overall Experience: The variety of courses is surprisingly extensive for a community college. I like the diversity. The quality of the courses I think could stand up to any other in the country. The classes are small, from 20-33 students generally. I've taken my courses all in average size classrooms, no large auditorium or lecture hall. The instructors are encouraging for the most part.

Online Courses: Online courses are okay but there's something about the personal interaction that a classroom gives that makes the experience better if you can physically attend classes. Sometimes it just works out where the only way you're able to attend is online.

I don't think one way is academically better than the other, its just psychologically better in the classroom.

The workload online seems extreme at times. Spring Break or any other holidays aren't recognized by the online faculty.

Peer-to-peer interaction is at your own discretion except when you are required to participate in peer-reviews for a discussion topic. I'm not a 'face-book' fan or participant but many are.

The registration process was easy and tech help is available and great to work with. Also, the online support staff are very helpful and easy to talk to. The professor/student relationship is okay, its barely noticeable unless you choose to interact with them much. I've contacted one or two for things and gotten fairly quick responses.

Student Body: There is a great diversity. Older students are about 1/8th of the student body, if not more. The greater majority are younger, straight out of high school or just passed, 17-22.

There's no discrimination problems noted; age, sex, race, or ethnic problems. A typical student is just a kid of 18-19 there with big dreams of making money or making a difference in the future. There's no serious dress-code, everyone pretty well dresses for comfort in jeans, sweats, slacks, skirts, and some in work uniforms (having come from the job to class).

The campus atmosphere is pretty laid-back and comfortable.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I had no problems with financial aid last semester as I received a full Pell Grant for the year 2014-2015. I am now running into difficulties and have applied for Pell Grant but it will not pay for the full tuition or books.

The financial aid process is frustrating for older students. There's not a lot of awards or grants available to help and the advice tends to point more towards 'borrowing'. Borrowing school funds is something I'm trying to avoid at this point though I feel I may need to in the future pursuit of my degree dreams.

Yes, I believe I am getting the educational value for my money and I feel I'm putting it to good use.

My tip for any financial aid package is to 'do it early if possible'. Most college money is served up on a first come/first serve basis, it seems. If you're still in high school start seeking scholarships, don't wait.

Academic Experience: The teachers I've had have all been pretty good though I think all colleges push too much info on students, cramming info that really will never be used into a small space of time and most students, myself included, won't retain what we learn unless we have a real active interest in the subject.

This semester I took Art Appreciation which awoke a desire to carry my drawing and sketching skills as far as I could. It is now my driving desire to enter the Art program. Up to this point I've just been knocking out the basics only, its been hard as I didn't have anything to really hold my interest.

Class registration process has been really easy, the workload (12 hrs) after being out of school so long seems intensive and a bit much but I figure all colleges are the same. Being able to take classes online has been a great help this semester but I miss the campus atmosphere and interaction with others you get by attending class.

Campus Resources: I love the fact that they have resources available and counseling for careers and even soft skill classes to help students practice for jobs. They also have 2/2 programs set-up with other schools where you know you'll be accepted and entered appropriately, like being an early admission student. They have great instructors and the smaller campus is enjoyable without being over-powering. They welcome older students and have tutors available as needed. The library services can be accessed online as well as physically and there's always someone willing to help or make suggestions for research projects.
