    i do think that students should take some time to relax, so that they can be rested before coming back to school.

    i think that students should eat a healthy meal to help them be mentally and physically fit for school.

    Campus Safety

    There are no security guards but there really doesn't seem to be a need for them. The parking lot is well lit, the front and back doors can be locked easily, but I would like to see a phone alert system, even if just for weather-related emergencies.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a number of groups to join: ACTOUT, ASTSA, NTHS, and those are just the ones I know of. There are many others and they all do great jobs getting the information posted for the students viewing.

    Great for these types of students

    Everyone. I'm a mom to 5 kids and it fits my schedule. Most of the other classmates work in the afternoon so the morning class schedule worked fine. It's great for those that are over-achievers as well as for those who aren't ready to make a 100% commitment to their education.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I haven't been there long enough to know, really. I do like the location of the campus and the great lake behind it. It has a pathway around it for a walk on breaks and lunches and to get some fresh air and regenerate those brain cells

    Bang for the buck

    I really do think that the school is a little pricey; however, it is a university and it is actually right on track for what state universities would charge.

    What to do for fun

    The classes are smaller in size so the students really get an opportunity to get to know one another. There are also groups that are offered and one of them ACTOUT, has parties at the end of each mod and really keep us energized and excited about school.

    Food and Dining

    There is a small dining area and that is always kept clean. I would like to see some healthier choices in the vending machines, though.

    Academic Rigor

    Because the classes are so short, there are more tests, and more quizzes, but they are on point and reasonable. Because the classes are shorter there is more information to absorb and it keeps you on your toes. You have to be willing to put effort into this to stay on top of the class!

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay in touch with everyone, from your admissions advisor to your financial aid person to the director of Education. Everyone is willing to help you and they all care about your success.

    In three sentences

    ECPI / Medical Careers Institute is very focused on the end goal of achieving your degree and the instructors work very hard to make sure that you have every opportunity to succeed. They have shorter classes that last only 5 weeks which is a great time so that you don't get bored of the subject and you really feel as if you are getting closer to the goal faster than ever.

    Bang for the buck

    Although ECPI is a private college with pricey tuition, the opportunity for loans and grants are available. In comparison to other colleges, ECPI's bachelor's program beats the time you would normally spend at a traditional college, by offering students a bachelors degree in 2.5 years! The money is worth all the time ECPI saves each student.

    What to do for fun

    ECPI has many different clubs students can become involved in, allowing them to get acquainted with other students and enjoying outside festive events planned by each individual group. Students can also join in on the fun in the world of gaming. Students interested can play in gaming tournaments, learn to build their own games and more!

    Food and Dining

    ECPI has a newly built cafe that offers breakfast and lunch items, as well as tasty snacks and drinks. The students from the Culinary Institute dedicate their time and culinary skills in the cafe, offering students and staff an assortment of delicious homemade breakfast and lunch menu items made from scratch, daily. From bacon, egg and cheese on a homemade biscuit to fresh chicken salad wrapped in a tortilla, A+ food is available all day long!

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately ECPI does not offer dorms for students at this time.

    Academic Rigor

    The faculty and staff at ECPI truly care about the success of each student and will show concern if any days of class are missed. The rules and regulations are necessary to insure a high rate of successful graduates at ECPI. The rules and regulations are firm, but are not unbearably strict.

    Tips for prospective students

    My personal advice for prospective ECPI students is to have a career plan set in their mind and go for the degree that best suites them, set short term and long term goals for their future and finally, students should study efficiently and gain as much knowledge as possible from of each class they attend.

    In three sentences

    ECPI offers many graduate programs; Business Management, IT Management, Health Administration and many other programs. Students have the chance to graduate with their bachelors degree in just 2.5 years. ECPI is a fast paced school that allows you to learn a lot in just a short period of time!

    Campus Safety

    The school is in a very busy location and there are plenty of lights and cameras around the building. For the night students, they have a security guard to watch the building.

    Clubs and Activities

    I wish I could rate five stars in this department but there aren't as many activities as I personally would like there to be. I must say they do try, and are always open to new ideas.

    Great for these types of students

    ECPI is a great University for any one who wants to get school done and over with. You get a bachelors degree in two and a half years, you can't get any better than that.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    When you pick a field of study at ECPI these people become family. We have so many inside jokes and great memories, it's going to be sad when I have to leave. I remember two entire classes went on a Chipotle break.

    Bang for the buck

    The thing I love about my school is that everything is included with the tuition. I pay a hundred dollars a month and that goes toward my tuition. I don't have to worry about buying my books or anything else.

    What to do for fun

    Every day is an adventure at ECPI. For the first time in my entire school life I actually look forward to going to class. They also have student appreciation days which provides food and fun games.

    Food and Dining

    Students have their own break room and a very beautiful outside scene to get fresh air when needed. Also, there is a very convenient cafe in the neighbouring building.

    Dorm Life

    The only reason there is a one star rating for dorm life is because it is not applicable. At this time, dorms are not available for my school

    Academic Rigor

    The college professors expect nothing but the best from each of their students. Although this may sound as if you would be pressured that is not the case. They help every student on not only their strengths, but their weaknesses. There's only room for improvement.

    Tips for prospective students

    When choosing a college or major, choose not only with your mind but your heart. Its is important to major in something you're passionate about; remember that saying: �Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.� -Confucius

    In three sentences

    ECPI University gives the opportunity of being yourself while learning in an amazing environment. The professors there have inspired me and shown me that I can achieve more than I had ever expected. I give this school six out of five stars and recommend it to everyone.

    Anyone can walk in there and pretty much do whatever they please. There is no security officer posted inside. I might of seen one patrol car pass through the parking lot in the 2 months I was attending.

    What to do for fun

    Nothing, Nada, Zilch, Zero

    Food and Dining

    They had a small break-room with vending machines but the teachers barely gave you any time to use it. You can't take drinks or food into the classroom so whatever you bought had to be eaten or drank in the 10 minute breaks you get.

    Dorm Life

    No dorm life

    Academic Rigor

    They want you to do good but they constantly harass you about everything.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want them to make up your schedule for classes then this is the school for you. The horrible schedule they use is, you take 2 classes each 5 week term. One class you take Monday and Wednesday and the other is Tuesday and Thursday. If you don't like being micromanaged then this IS NOT the school for you. The teachers are constantly in your behind about everything, as if your not an adult and this is high school. I missed one day of one class and about half of the other one week for personal reasons and I received an email stating that if I miss any more time they are going to give me an F grade and fail me. With all the stress with work and personal life people have, that's not what you want to read one day coming into school. People have lives and people have problems and people pay to go to the school not the other way around.

    In three sentences

    I was receiving Veteran benefits which pretty much meant that I was going to school for free because the government was paying me to go to school, and I couldn't even phantom myself giving the money to this school. I couldn't deal with some of the teachers and the constant micromanaging so I transferred to another school.

    Campus Safety

    The campus holds safety in high regards no weapons allowed on campus unless a police officer or other law enforcement who are on duty as they have to carry their weapons on them. No delinquent behavior is permitted and can lead to explosion. Professionalism is expected from students at all times because potential employers from highly respected businesses are constantly coming by looking for students to hire.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club for every major like med club for the medical students, computer club for the computer students (not engineering there is a difference), robotics club for the mechatronic students, and so on.

    Great for these types of students

    The clubs are geared for the students in the field. Such as med club is for medical students. However if you have an interest in the field but aren't studying for that major you can still join. They do community projects as well so you're not going to be stuck inside all the time. Like the med club is doing the upcoming walk for the March of Dimes.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None that I know of.

    Bang for the buck

    Don't be afraid to ask questions during class if you don't understand. If this still isn't enough ask for help after school. Most professors will stay, but even if they cannot they will bring you to the expert tutor on the subject.

    What to do for fun

    Plenty of school clubs and you don't have to be taking that major to join. If this doesn't interest you then network and find students with similar interests as your own.

    Food and Dining

    There are vending machines with good food and drinks. Cheaper then any other places I have seen as well.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    This is a accelerated college so your be taking two classes at the same time. Keep the tips in mind previously mentioned and your do fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you don't already have these skills learn them: basic computer use, make goals for yourself, good study habits, how to keep a budget, time management, motivation, resume writing, as well as research online and in library.

    In three sentences

    Accelerated degrees, family friendly environment all faculty helps if you just ask them and if the individual you ask cannot help you they bring you to who can, and good professors they don't teach just from book.

    Dorm Life

    I am a strickly online student so I am unsure of the dorm life or even if it is offered.

    Academic Rigor

    Since ECPIs terms are only 5 weeks long per class, it is very rigorous. You may have one class one term and three classes the next. This is how they can offer you a degree in less then 2.5 years. They do offer all types of resources and tutors are there if you need them.

    Tips for prospective students

    You must be a self driven and self disciplined person to take online classes. ECPI works at a very fast pace and if you get behind it is hard to catch up. The professors are very easy to get along with and are very helpful. The best advice I can give you is to be VERY active in the online discussion boards, that is where you will be able to fill the blanks when you feel lost on any subject.

    Hard workers.

    Bang for the buck

    While ECPI offers degree completion faster than most schools, it is extrememly expensive and at least in the RN program, I don't feel that the courses are complete. Some teachers try to cram huge amounts of info and others tell you only what you need to know. Also the school is not nationally acredited, which more RN to BSN programs require if you are thinking about continuing education. Also, since ECPI does not require as many classes to graduate as other RN programs, when you go to get your BSN, you will be required to do classes that should have been taken prior to even getting your RN. I would've gone to a cheaper school with a better educational program. This school seems to good to be true. It is. I've had some good instructors, but overall the admin staff and professors are not ideal.

    Food and Dining

    Vending machines only.

    Academic Rigor

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend having a savings account or a stable financial situation before attending a full-time program. Make sure you have a good support system before starting because with year round school it is very hard to stay motivated unless you have family/friends supporting your decisions and positively motivating you.

    In three sentences

    ECPI University is a great school to get your education in a short amount of time. I would recommend it to those who are in a hurry to get a degree and don't really have other commitments outside of school. The downside would be that it is basically a year round school, so no summer or spring breaks. Lastly, it can be pretty costly depending on the program of choice, but if in a person's budget, the education is worth it.

    If you're someone who wants career experience instead of just the stereotypical college education, then this college is for you. You take classes that will help you in the field later on. If you want a challenge, you should also go here.

    What to do for fun

    There really isn't a lot to do around the campus for fun if you're a night student. However, there are a few clubs that meet up in the afternoon, as well as a few places to hang out such as the break room and the library. Other than that, the nearby city area is very fun to hang out at after class.

    Food and Dining

    The food is alright. The only food that really comes is from a nearby pizza place, which tastes pretty good. But if you want something other than that, you're going to have to bring your own food. All that they really have are vending machines with junk food. You're better off bringing something or going out to buy something at the nearby restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    I don't attend the ECPI University that has a dorm. The one I go to is commute only.

    Academic Rigor

    For me, I find things pretty easy, but then again, I've just started. I have dealt with accelerated classroom environments before in high school, as well as heavy workloads, so I think that I am a bit prepared for what will go on. I forsee some challenge, but nothing I can't handle.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you come fully prepared for what you are getting into. Getting out in 2.5 years means you will be putting a lot of time and effort into this school, to make sure it's really what you want to do. Don't let things discourage you early on. It'll be rough for the first few weeks or so, but you'll eventually get used to the flow. Definitely talk to your instructors if you have a problem. They are more than willing to help you out and make things easier for you.

    In three sentences

    ECPI heavily encourages its students to embrace technology, no matter what field they are studying. They change with the times and adapt to new changes that happen in society, bringing those changes into the curriculum to make the learning experience much more enjoyable. It feels as though I'm learning experience for when I head out into the workforce instead of just cramming formulas and facts into my head for an upcoming test.

    In three sentences

    ECPI is a very accommodating school, but you have to be ready to ask questions. You also have to WANT to do well and succeed, as classes move very quickly due to the accelerated nature of the school. The staff is available for help almost all the time, just know who you need to talk to in order to get your questions adequately answered.

    ECPI is an accelerated program, in which I know and can vouch for the Manassas campus in Virginia will make you fill more than accepted and comfy.

    I had the opportunity to personally meet with several of the chefs and hear all about their individual experience in the industry. Knowing that these chefs have had successful careers in the food service industry and actually understand what they are talking about gives me assurance that I can learn from these culinary masters and achieve my goal of owing my own restaurant one day.

    What to do for fun

    Norfolk area is great. Lots to do after school like visiting Virginia Beach and more.
