4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The heavy workload, at times, was very discouraging, and at times I didn't think i could make it. After a while you get used to it, you realize this is what you will be doing forever. So don't think about it as work, think about it as your future, and make the work your own.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Well, I am a female mechanical engineering freshman, and there is however, only one other girl in the whole class. This can get rough at times, getting picked on, secluded, and having to deal with a bunch of guys, but overall the Professors treat us like humans and we are able to get the work done just like anyone else!

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: 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!

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: My major is nursing and it is very difficult. The program is intense, the workload is immense and the curriculum is very challenging. This being said, my professors want to help me succeed and are always available to provide help so I can be successful. I am encouraged by their high job placement ratings and they offer lifelong employment placing assistance. Vermont Tech is a wonderful college that will provide me with many opportunities for the future.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: In the business program, you learn about being a leader and the process of ethical behaviors. These help you not only in work, but in day or day life because it is important to be a leader figure and help guide others.
