Academic Flexibility: I spent my first year doing my prerequisites before I started in my program. The prerequisites are very flexible and easy to work with. You have a good list to chose from on what days and time of the days you want to have the class. I don't know if this is true with other programs at Stark State, but when started in the classes for my program (Medical Lab tech), I realized how serious I had to be about this. You can only take certain classes during certain times of the year. If you failed the class, you had to wait until that same time next year to take it again. Also, there was only one choice to pick from when setting up your classes for the next semester- you had to conform to your school schedule. This is why my advisor said at the very beginning that she discourages anyone from working when trying to take these classes, and it's only worse if you're supporting a family. Fortunately for me, I am a traditional college student, which allows me to be flexible for this.

Online Courses: I have not taken any classes online except for when I was in my senior year of high school and Stark State was offering free courses; I took Medical Terminology. For me personally, I prefer the traditional classroom because I do better with human interaction, but the professor in charge of the course did a very good job answering any of my questions. There was some challenge to it, but the professor did her best to help us understand it better-she used powerpoint presentations that correlated with the material in the book. I did fairly well in it.

Career Services: I'm actually not at the stage for transferring my credits yet; I still have a year left before graduating for an Associate's. I have heard both from a representative of Stark State and by my advisor that Stark State' credits can be transferred and accepted by many other colleges and universities that they have agreements with. My advisor said that by this coming fall semester, my classmates and I will have the opportunity to sit down and talk to representatives of other schools for those of us who want to continue our education for a Bachelor's degree after internship and graduation. I have also heard that the professor's of our program will sign an agreement with us, giving them permission to use them as a reference for potential employers. I'll have more information as the year progresses.

Overall Experience: Our class sizes can usually hold up 20-30 people; having these smaller class sizes does allow the students to have better access to the professors for specific questions they have about the material. The professors that I've had loved what they taught and tried to make the lesson and the notes easy to understand; they didn't just teach the textbook to us. Since my major is more scientifically related, my experiences not only included lecture, but also lab. For example, human anatomy and physiology, we not only studied the different systems of the body-we actually got to look and touch cadavers.

Overall Experience: Like I mentioned before, we do have internships for the different programs. I do believe that there have been job fairs held at Stark State; I definitely know that Stark State has allowed representatives from other colleges and universities to set up tables in the cafeteria for those who are thinking about transferring their credits and continuing their education for a Bachelor's degree.

Academic Experience: The program that I'm majoring in is Medical Laboratory Technology, where we are trained to become lab techs; we help doctors and nurses diagnose a patient's condition by running specific lab tests on samples and specimens of body fluids and tissues (such as blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid, etc.). The curriculum can be very challenging; the head of our program said that it would not be good idea to be working while taking the classes because the course demands a lot of attention and studying outside the classroom. We do have labs attached with each class; we have learned how to withdraw a couple of tubes of blood from a patient, type the blood (ABO and Rh), analysis on urine specimens (physical, chemical and microscopic examination), and more. Our instructors put a lot of effort and time into teaching us through class lecture and through lab; they have made deals with hospitals for donated specimens and supplies that we work with in the lab for better practice and preparation for when we go out into the workforce. In the very last semester of the program, each of us are assigned to a directed practice (different hospitals and medical facilities) for internship. We work under the supervision of the certified lab techs and get to apply our skills that we learned in the field; this lasts for about 3-4 months. I've heard that some of those places have hired those students upon graduation and helped to pay for their tuition if they decide to transfer their credits to a 4 year college/university to continue their education for a Bachelor's degree.

Overall Experience: For me, Stark State has the lowest tuition I know of (less than $4100 a year), they offered my major that I couldn't find in many other places (Medical Laboratory Tech.), they have no dorms (which doesn't add any cost so it helps to be local), & they're accredited. Since Stark State is known as a 2 year school (mostly offer Associate degrees), they have many agreements with other colleges & universities that make it easy to transfer your credits for a Bachelor's. It's easy to get accepted there & they train you very well for the work world.
