1 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My experience may be uncommon because I did a music major, but none of my credits transferred in from Drake University. Time will tell how many transfer out.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My overall experience here was good. If I was able to finish my degree before they cancelled it on me, I would view the school pretty favorably.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The teachers are knowledgeable, the classes are reasonably sized and paced, and I enjoyed the time I spent learning.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: Having my degree program discontinued while I was enrolled makes me biased. But I spent two years working towards a degree I can't get, so I'm gonna call this one a waste of time and pray all (or at least most) of my credits will transfer towards a better school.

4 College Senior

Student Body: It's a very diverse campus, with people speaking many different languages on campus, coming from many countries and ethnic backgrounds and religions. People go here because they want to be there. No one made me feel like they were there because it was their only option, no one really disrupted classes. BUT there's no real clubs or activities, so making new friends has been incredibly hard. After two years here, my facebook friend list has grown by 3 people. It's a commuter campus with no dorms, so there's no one hanging around after they're out of class unless they're waiting on a bus or ride home. The dining hall closes at like 3 pm or something ridiculous so no one has a reason to hang out once they're done with classes.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: After FAFSA and scholarships, I was going essentially for free. It even covered books, a bus pass, and lab kits and supplies.

Career Services: If there was anything on campus to make this process easier, I didn't hear about it. I know they did job fairs, but that only helps if you're staying in St. Louis, and are going for the types of jobs that are coming and interviewing students.

1 College Senior

Academic Experience: Being a music major was great! Until they dropped the degree. If I want to graduate, I have to do it towards an associate of arts degree, since the music degree program is gone. Needless to say I won't be graduating from here, even though I'm 61 credits in.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I had at least two amazing teachers. The school is great, as long as you are in a secure program.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: Because enrollment has been low, athletics are shared amongst all the STLCC campuses, every campus feels like it's lacking. I've never met anyone who really cared about our teams or games, and I've only been in the gym once. The library is ok. We're severely lacking in campus activities.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I think that the libraries are good but the librarians are terrible, some of them are rude but others just have know clue what they are doing. There are a LOT of campus activities and areas to get involved every where you turn. I love the fact that there are always things going on in the cafeteria whether it be presentations or events that the culinary department and art department hold. Forest Park is never boring and its always a fast paced feel. The student center is always packed with students just lounging around which can be annoying at times, but at least there is a place to lounge.

Overall Experience: This is my last semester before I transfer and I am now a junior. I am very pleased and satisfied with my experience at STLCC Forest Park and I'm glad that I chose to go to this campus mainly because of the diversity, I went to Kirkwood High School which is close to Meramac and I heard the Flo.Valley campus isn't all that hot. But i live not too far from Forest Park which makes it very convenient for me to get to school, but i feel like going here has challenged me just enough to prepare me to be able to transfer to a larger university. Also I have finished all of my prerequisites here and with using RateMyProfeessor.org i would grade my professor, courses, and experience as a whole with an A- grade.

Overall Experience: I love that for the math and biology courses there are a range of teachers to choose from at reasonable times. But when it comes to smaller classes like art, they usually have one time which is later in the day and I find that very inconvenient. Also with the French class that I am in not many other student have signed up for, therefore if there are not enough students then you run the risk of either the class being cancelled or push back as a late start class. Other than that classes are not too big, they're just the right size to where you don't feel like just a number.

Academic Flexibility: I have always been able to get the classes I want and the classes I need, whether i applied early or at the lawt minute. I love how the professors are willing to give overrides to students once the Banner self service says that the classes are full. As long as you let professors know ahead of time that you will not be able to make classes and deadlines, they are more than willing to accommodate you. Most teachers have a set make up day for tests at the end of the year which is also a plus.

Career Services: I don't really have much insight on this topic

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think that everyone should take advantage of the classes here at STLCC because you are paying hardly nothing compare to other universities who we share the same professors with. The classes are really cheap and affordable and they provide a good amount of money to pay for books, as well as a generous lump some of financial aid refund money as well.

Academic Experience: I am a nursing major here at STLCC forest park and even though I am not going to do the nursing program here, from what I have seen there are a lot of devoted nursing students and aspiring nursing students who have access to labs and hands on work.

Academic Experience: The professors at this school are amazing because a lot of them have been professors at other universities like Wash U, SLU, or Lindenwood and they are very helpful. The professors are good at making sure they give syllabi at the beginning of the year so you can keep up and regularly remind you of tests and projects. The workload is just a little bit harder than that of a high school, just as long as you stay on top of it you will be fine. Plus there are lots of students who like to have study sessions outside of class as well as the bone/anatomy help lab. reading, writing, and math labs are a plus as well so take advantage of them.

Online Courses: The online courses are sort of a shock at first. You have to make sure you put time aside to be able to get the work done as well as a working computer that you know how to manage or else it is easy to fall behind. It is easier to fall behind in an online class than a regular lecture class if you font have the book because the class will move on without you, rather than in a classroom you can get notes from another student or share the book with them.

Student Body: I love the amount of diversity here at STLCC Forest Park, because there are people here from all walks of life. There are a handful of different foreigners as well, which makes it easy to become very cultured, because everyone is so friendly and open when it comes to getting to get to know new people. Also there are college students here who have transferred from other colleges and there are older students who are trying to gain more knowledge to further a career for themselves. I myself am a Muslim student who was born and raised in America and there are lots of other Muslim students as well, especially those who have com from other countries which makes it easier to feel comfortable about your own faith while at school.

Career Services: i haven't had any interactions with this part as of yet.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school is way too expensive for the same education that you can get a typical 4 year university.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is a mixture of students that attend the school. Men, women, young, and old, white, black, hispanic, asian are all students at the school

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They offer a student service center which will help to succeed in school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You get what you pay for, and this school is not expensive.
