    Academic Rigor

    The course load is very attentive and sometimes rigorous but well maintainable with step by step processes conducted by the teachers and staff. Upon graduation, you are well prepared and sometimes more so than sophomores within four year school programs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be attentive, work hard, don't be afraid to ask for help because its always available for your academic excellence! Use help from librarians and computer room staff for any extra help with papers, research and writing

    In three sentences

    Maria College is a great start towards educational and career goals. The ability to be a part of a small campus with a smaller teacher to student ratio proved to be fundamental for ones academic growth. Both teachers and staff are available for the optimum academic levels of achievement with as much work and effort that you put forth.

    Campus Safety

    There are a lot of security on campus.The security guards are very approachable and are known by a first name basis. As soon as anyone walks into the building they are greeted by the security.

    Greek Life

    There is no greek life on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs that they have are the clubs that are geared to the health care field. the clubs are there to raise funds for the departments of the health professions.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for working students, for students who have children and students that only have the weekend available to go to school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The location of the school is by one of the largest hospitals in the region. Since the school is near the hospital there are a lot of students who are hired by the hospitals once they have completed their program.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is huge on religion which is a good thing because it is a peaceful calm environment. Each student is almost forced to be a good student because of the environment.

    What to do for fun

    The school is all work and no play. Most students are there to get there healthcare degree and immediately get into the work field.

    Food and Dining

    The dining is not great at all. They have a vending machine and they just opened a little cafe area that have cold cafe food and nothing to glamorous. I wish the dining was better because there are a lot of evening and weekend students and it will beneficial for them.

    Dorm Life

    This school does not have a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor is like any other college. Integrity in your own work is a must. The student needs to do his.her own work and do not plagiarize in any form.

    Tips for prospective students

    The tips I can give to prospective students are that they need to stay on top of their assignments. the professors are excellent on how assignment are given and it can seem as if the assignments are manageable but they can easily become overwhelming.

    In three sentences

    Maria College of Albany is an excellent school if you are looking to go into the health care field for nursing or occupational therapy assistant. the program is very flexible. they have day classes, evening classes and weekend classes to accommodate any student current situation.
