5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Very hands on, get to meet and work with companies, great internships available.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The trips we get to go on and the real life experience with companies in my field of study.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: As a student, I can create my own schedule. I am a few hours from home so I could set up my schedule around leaving on Fridays for the weekends. Most classes have more than one time and also more than one professor. The only issue I have had is two classes happening at the same time, but is an easy fix as you can choose a different class time for one of them.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Many students obtain jobs after they graduate. A lot of students who have an internship are asked to stay as an employee.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For the most part, every professor I have had so far has been great. They all care for the students and will go the extra mile to get the information across, especially considering some of the class sizes. I have a few classes that take place in lecture halls that have about 60 to 70 students, while other classes can only have 15 to 20. The courses are fair as most of the teachers here will post the notes and assignments on the online homework page called Moodle. Moodle is a very helpful tool as you can go back and look at the power points or assignments if there is something you missed or need to refresh yourself with.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many students work on campus at the bookstore or food halls. Internships are also big part of the education here. Many majors for the Associates degree require an internship during one of the final semesters. While talking to the staff in the student life center, they told me that many students obtain jobs in their major right out of college or within a year or two. Also, many times, there are opportunities to talk to former students of Cobleskill related to your major.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: As an Animal Science major, the teaching staff does a great job with applying the lectures with the labs and getting to be hands on with different animals. The work load is pretty fair, as long as you do the readings and assignments, the classes are fairly simple. Also, a lot of the classed required for this major coincide with each other so it makes memorization easier.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are lots of activities and volunteer opportunities as the campus is very involved with students and the community. The faculty and other students are very friendly and willing to answer any questions you might have as an incoming student. The professors care about teaching and are very helpful if you do not understand the material or have any questions. I would definitely choose to go to Cobleskill again as it has a great faculty and feels like home.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The school was excellent in that they accepted my 44 college credits. However they struggled to create a schedule for me. They like to say," I guess you could take these classes." They do not have a definite answer. I would like to see optimism and reward for working hard. They should not be mad or angry that I have transfer credits.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: The college has developed many great relationships with graduate schools and employers. Some graduate schools automatically accept Cobleskill graduates. Being that I am a freshman, I have not dealt with the Student Success center very much. I do know however that they are the ones to talk to for graduate school programs. I also know that we have a resume building service that alum have access to. This enable the user to submit a resume for revision and advice. The user can also use templates to create and store multiple resumes.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel as though some courses are not properly labeled. When I see Agricultural Mechanics, I think of fixing things. However this class was more of a metal working class. I also think that some professors are too smart. They are trying to teach way above the heads of the students. The school is a technical school, so the professors do not have high standards. They do not take it well when I have high standards. The class size and lab size however are definitely something to brag about.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From what I can see, there are many careers available with this degree. There is an opportunity to be a service technician either for a dealership, farm, or for specific equipment. There is also the option for test and development, sales representative, or product engineer. This degree gives the student a background in hydraulics, welding, diesel engines, air conditioning, business, and metal working. There is a whole other side to Ag Engineering. That is food processing and manufacturing. There are unique systems for harvesting, packaging and transporting. The student success center does an excellent job of preparing the student; everything from interview practice to resume building. They know who to talk to and what to search for in regards to jobs and internships.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: For every lecture there is a hands on lab to go with it. The workload is not that much compared to other degrees, but I find that to be perfect. Our professors do the best to teach both modern and older systems. They also work hard to create partnerships with equipment manufacturers. All of the professors are in touch with industry leaders, some try harder to connect the student with these leaders. There are several opportunities for jobs and internships.I do wish however that we fix problems rather than the theory of operation.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It truly is post secondary education. I am not taking a class where I think "When am I going to use this?" I brought a dress suit and I found a reason to wear it. Within the first week of school, I had an interview for the student ambassador position. I was honored to have been hired as a student ambassador. I love working with the admissions department to help future students! I am also very excited to graduate a year early. I am able to do this because of college classes that I took in high school.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Every college class that I had taken in community college and high school transferred in to work towards my major here at Cobleskill. I was able to start as a second semester sophomore.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have only taken one online course, but it was very easy to follow and the teacher was extremely well organized. I did have some feedback in terms of earlier access to supplemental materials, but overall I had very little difficulty completing the work on time.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The staff is friendly and constantly looking for opportunities to offer the student body. Walking into the office was one of the best choices I ever made because they walked me through creating my resume step by step with promises of future assistance.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most classes are small enough that there is significant opportunity to interact directly with your professor. The school itself is so small, though, that you will likely have the same people in almost all of the classes that are connected with your major. You will have the same teachers for multiple subjects as well. That can be difficult if you do not like their teaching style, because there is very little variety.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Alumni are always willing to give a recent graduate a leg up into an internship or a job, if they can. The Career office is also constantly sending out offers for positions that any student can choose to apply for. The staff is always helpful in forming important networking connections and supportive of the student's own exploration in this area.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The teachers are not of the highest caliber, but they are all still involved in their fields. They keep up with the changes in research and conduct some of their own. They are interested in you if you are interested in learning. I have never met a teacher who did not readily offer me the assistance I asked for.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I happen to learn best when I have the opportunity to interact with what I am learning about. I have that chance every day at Cobleskill. It is not the best, nor is the food that interesting, but I chose it for the distance from home, the size and for the classes it offered.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The online courses are easy to use and access and the teachers can also be found on campus if you can not understand the online work.
