I have had an excellent, although relatively limited, experience with the college. The student financial and academic services are accessible and knowledgeable. I attend the Great Lakes Maritime Academy campus, and the instructors are both very intelligent and engaging.

All of my professors have been enthusiastic about the subjects they teach and more than willing to help those who have questions or want more learning opportunities. Most provide chances for service learning or work that goes beyond the classroom, which helps to make the quality of their teaching much richer. The classes vary in size, but all of the ones I've taken so far have a maximum of 30 people, making it very easy to get help when you need it. Professors know their students by name, their face, and even writing style, and pay attention to the success of their students.
