I really liked my online classes through Vermont Tech; the class size was actually large, but I never felt like it was. The professor was amazing, very fair, very active and very much a strong contributor to my learning experience. I could ask questions and receive almost immediate feedback. Clear instructions were given so I knew exactly what to expect and feedback was available. In addition, the professor would review our drafts and make corrections before we submitted our final papers so that we had opportunities to learn from our mistakes and correct them. This was my favorite class and had a very positive outcome!

The work load can be a lot at times, but it is worth it. By the end of your sophomore year, you are placed into a paid internship that relates to your major. Students in the technology field have a job placement rate of 99% by the time they graduate from Vermont Technical College. In the software engineering program at VTC, you start off learning Java, HTML, and SQL. The most challenging part of the freshman year is probably learning how to manage your time and get all of your assignments done. One piece of advice that I had received was to start the assignments as soon as it is assigned. Each assignment usually gets a two week deadline, so it is easy to put it off until last minute. Getting the assignment done in the first week is one of the best things to do, because it gives your room to ask your professor for help, and also decreases your stress from worrying about the deadline. Overall, I love the course work and curriculum!

I truly love this school! If you definitely know what major you want to go into, then VTC is one of the best colleges to look at. The classes are small, allowing you to know everyone and become friends with both your classmates and teachers. The teachers truly care about each student, and want you to succeed. A lot of the classes have hands on experience labs to help students learn the materials better. The admissions office is extremely helpful and understanding. If I had to go back and re-pick a college to go to, I would still choose Vermont Technical College.
