    Bang for the buck

    no, Rasmussen isn't a public college or community college, therefor its a little more expensive. I'd rather pay more and know I am getting a good education and know I will receive job placement assistance for life, after graduation.

    Am enjoying being here

    The students and teachers/staff is really friendly and helpful.

    Am learning a lot

    Some of the things I've learned, actually make scene, not just mumble jumble.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for non-traditional students who need online courses or flexible scheduling. Also would be good for people just out of high school.

    Tips for prospective students

    Enroll and stay enrolled, even if you have to cut down to only one class a quarter because they guarantee tuition will not increase as long as you stay enrolled. They also offer incentives based on how many credits you are taking.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is a little pricier, but they work with you on so many levels, scheduling, student aid, resources, I feel it is worth the money.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everyone at Rasmussen has been extremely helpful and I haven't had any negative experiences in my 2+ years here.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning a lot of information in various areas at Rasmussen. They offer a lot of different classes and the online interface is extremely easy to use and learn from.

    I am a single mother with no vehicle. Rasmussen College Online is perfect for people that want to stay at home with their children and have no for sure way of getting to a school every day. I am a full-time student and I'm getting good grades because I can do all my classes online when I want to do them.

    Tips for prospective students

    Utilize the Wimba classrooms. It is so cool to be able to talk with your teacher, even though they are far away. Make sure you check your grades and ask the teachers any questions you may have.

    Bang for the buck

    Although I have a junior college closer to my house and it is not as expensive as Rasmussen, I wanted a better education. It will be well worth the price when I have a degree in two years as opposed to three years because there are too many students in a class, so you have to wait. I think the price of Rasmussen College is worth it, especially when you'll be making more in the future!

    Am enjoying being here

    I like Rasmussen a lot. I like how they have 24/7 technical support and personal support. I really feel like they take time to make the student comfortable and enjoy being a student at this school. When I go to the campus, I really feel like everyone is a family and that they know you. It is really enjoyable!

    Am learning a lot

    I was kind of worried to take online classes, but once I went in to the campus and my program manager was explaining the online curriculum, I knew it was right for me. I have attended two semesters here and I have learned so much, I have already filled out for healthcare jobs!

    Great for these types of students

    I am a online student, I like how all my classes can be done online. I also get to explore and set up interviews with officials, I have been on a ride along with the Belleview police department, I have had interviews with the Belleview department of corrections, and now seeing the Ocala department of corrections for my course project.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    They have stress buster, which is where you have ice cones, pop corn, just things for the students that is not always work. They have Halloween rooms during Halloween, and family days where you can bring your family up to mingle.

    Bang for the buck

    I have enjoyed all my classes at Rasmussen college. It would depend on what you are looking for and how one feels about the classes they are taken. I feel all the classes that I have taken are worth my time and money, In the end they do get me ready for the world and my career field.

    What to do for fun

    There are clubs within the college you can be a part of depending on what you like. There is the Techie's club which they help fix computers. For fun you can always Face Book and meet people within the school that have different classes as you.

    Food and Dining

    Ocala has a lot of places to eat and have an enjoyable time off campus. Rasmussen college is a no tobacco campus, which means no smoking. I like that because I am a non-smoker.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dorm. I do not live far from the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    I am very pleased with my academic work load and classes. I like learning, the classes give me many options in reading, both online and in text books. I am able to do added research and explore case study's. Learn how to type up police reports,and how to help the victims of crimes as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Online classes are the hardest, you have to motivate yourself to get the work done. You have to set aside time for reading, and planning in order to get the most out of your classes. Unlike traditional class rooms you are teaching yourself. If you have questions ask soon as you get the assignment, do not wait. It can take a while for the instructor to email you back. The feedback from your instructors are very important. Also use all sources available to you.

    In three sentences

    Rasmussen college has the most helpful people working there. They want to see you succeed in your goals, they are kind and helping answering all question's before you leave. You get friendly services and most employees of Rasmussen are also students there.

    Campus Safety

    Hand-in-hand with the education. They understand that the teachers and students need to feel safe so they can all focus on their schooling. So Rasmussen pays very close attention to everything safety.

    Bang for the buck

    The star rate changes from school to school and also depends on what degree you're going for. You don't want to attend their nursing school if going for your digital design and animation degree is all I'm saying. Otherwise, they definitely meet adequate and then some.

    What to do for fun

    A lot of the teachers are pretty laid back so you are able to joke around with a lot of them. Not a whole lot to for fun, other then what the teacher tries to provide. The school is just that focused on your education.

    Food and Dining

    It's adequate, but they're more focused on the schooling itself and realize that there are a lot of restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the school.

    Dorm Life

    There isn't a dorm. . .

    Academic Rigor

    They offer plenty of help when it comes to homework and making sure you get the best possibly grade you can. If that grade isn't an A, then they'll give you the tools you need to make it so.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your research on their schools before deciding specifically which school you will go to for your desired degree. Not all of their school are specifically set-up for all of their degrees. They don't however take any short cuts, just be sure you're going to the correct school.

    In three sentences

    Rasmussen is a decent school with a solid online set-up. Need to pay a bit more attention to their hardware. However, the teachers intellect on their subjects definitely helps make up for it.

    Self driven, parents,

    Bang for the buck

    I went to SCSU and I did not think that I got my money worth from SCSU so I transfered back to Rasmussen. They are very personal and they know you by first name.

    What to do for fun

    St.Cloud has so much to do for fun. It just depends on what you like to do. There is quite a few restaurants and pubs that are fun to eat at. There is the Crossroads Mall which has a lot of stores under one roof.

    Food and Dining

    Great for students who are scared of big changes, being on campus is like being at home.

    Food and Dining

    Rasmussen is very close (within 5 minutes) of dozens of fast food places, dinners, restaurants and gorcery stores.

    Dorm Life

    Although Rasmussen does not have dorms every student is very nice and helpful, if you stop and ask a random person for directions they will tell you with out being rude. Everyone is nice.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are hard but the professors are super helpful and you dont have to be scared to ask them a question if you dont understand something.

    Deffinately set up a meeting with an advisor, they are so helpful and they don't make you feel dumb for asking questions they address all of your concerns. The advisors will help you with all paper work and picking classes.

    Campus Safety

    This college is located above the Social Security Administration building in the government center so needless to say there is a security guard on duty right at the front door, which makes me feel more at ease!

    Clubs and Activities

    I've seen some advertised in the school, I plan on joining some when I start, maybe even starting a new one!

    Great for these types of students

    They have a select group of programs including nursing and design but not limited to those. I think if you're easily lost in large groups and would rather have more connection and one on one interaction with personable and friendly staff, this is the school for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I love the fact that they made it look more laid back, fun and artsy rather than so business like and serious. As an artist this is where I belong, in an atmosphere I feel totally comfortable in.

    Bang for the buck

    All around awesome student atmosphere. They have flexible scheduling in a small enough atmosphere where you can actually get to know your instructors and feel comfortable asking them the questions you need to succeed. They even offer Mac and PC so students can be fully equipped to know both (I'm a design student) along with FREE tutoring every day so even if you need help and your instructor isn't available you can still get your homework done with ease!

    What to do for fun

    It's not a university but they do offer many different clubs for students to participate in and they have events all the time advertised through the building.

    Food and Dining

    Cafeteria is very cozy and friendly. Laid back atmosphere where you can even bring friends or family who aren't students if they could help you study or you just want to hang out.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms on site.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are in need of a college that will meet your individual needs right up front don't feel obligated to go one way. Rasmussen has been completely honest with me and helped me every step of the way in knowing that this is the right choice for me, maybe not for everyone - but I couldn't have picked a better college.

    In three sentences

    The staff are very personable they know me by name and always help me with every aspect of the questions I ask them. The campus is small and personal so I feel comfortable and know I am getting the one on one attention I personally need to succeed. They know about my learning style and even include design tools in the tuition cost on top of that they make the entire process easy and non-intimidating. I already have an Associate but I'm proud to say I will be obtaining my Bachelor from Rasmussen College of New Port Richey, Megan Frey is a saint!

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    The professors treat me like an adult. The material is not spoon-fed, so I'm challenged, but not overwhelmed. When I graduate as an RN, I'm confident that I'll be able to treat and save people's lives!

    Come in for an info packet and take a QUICK tour with one of the Program Managers. Even the students are willing to give advise!

    One thing that impressed me about the college, is that you could do residential and online; whaever suits your needs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although my field of study is in the medical field, Rasmussen offers a wide arrange of degrees. Whether it is business to ITT; 2 to 4 years and even graduate work.

    Bang for the buck

    Although at first, the tuition may seem high, but when you consider that you books, labs and all the tools needed to complete the course are included; the price is worth it.

    Rasmussen has made the transition form fear to; looking forward to every week.

    Am learning a lot

    I am entering my 3rd semester in the medical field. I am 56yrs old and returning to school was intimidating.

    Mankato has many places to go for fun. Wow Zone offers lazer tag, bowling, mini golf, and an arcade. The River Hills Mall has shopping and a movie theater. There are also two other bowling alleys and theaters to visit. Since MN State University is in Mankato, there are Maverick football and hockey games to attend. There is also a large bar and restaurant area downtown for a night out!

    Food and Dining

    Near the Mankato Campus, there are many great places to eat within a 5 minute drive. Buffalo Wild Wings is even within walking distance of the school. A short drive away is the River Hills Mall where you can find a full food court. Also near there is an Applebees, TGI Friday's and Olive Garden. If you don't have time to leave campus, Jimmy Johns and multiple pizza places can deliver.

    Dorm Life

    Rasmussen college does not have dorms but there are many off campus apartments and rental homes in the city of Mankato, which is the campus I attend.

    Academic Rigor

    The online environment is fairly relaxed and offers very flexible learning. There is a lot of work to complete but it is all spaced out to allow students plenty of time to complete it. Sometimes it can be overwhelming having multiple online classes but it really pays off with everything you learn and the flexibility of online learning.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take the time to apply and the admissions at the school will help you through everything. Just call with any questions because they are extremely helpful and will really help you through the process to get started as easily as possible. Also, take the time to apply for financial aid because Rasmussen offers great grants and scholarships!

    In three sentences

    Rasmussen admissions are very friendly and helpful. The took my previous education into consideration and helped me transfer as painlessly as possible. I am transferring to Rasmussen because their online program is much more student friendly than my previous school.

    Rasmussen is clean, neat, updated, and has today's technology. The school really takes an interest in you as an individual, instead of just a number. You couldn't get a better support team if you asked for it, the staff knows your name and is always there to help.

    If you are a driven student who doesn't care what others think of you than this is a great opportunity. If you are able to teach yourself through online classes than this is the right road for you.

    Very expensive and they do not use used books. You are requiered to by scrubs which may not be used in your internship.

    What to do for fun

    They have clubs, and different activities posted on their website such as blood drives, runs for cherities, and career fairs every couple of months.

    Food and Dining

    They have occasional days where different food is offered. Otherwise there are vending machines and pop machines.

    Dorm Life

    We do not have dorms so I cannot comment on this.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are average so most people should understand them. Majority are online so students should have internet acess and knowledge. Do not rely on help from others because it could take a few days and emails can be misleading.

    Tips for prospective students

    Know exactly what career you want to go into. Do not attend if you are unsure about the degree or career choice because they do not accept undecided students. Be able to study on your own because a lot of the classes are online and the help is not 24/7.

    Rasmussen offers typical vending machines and soda machines. However, they do have events like cookouts and holiday feasts that will definitely satisfy the in class munchies!

    Academic Rigor

    The staff and the teachers are amazing. I have learned so much from everyone at Rasmussen!

    Campus Safety

    This is plus. The campus is directly across the street from the Courthouse and the Sheriff's Department, you can't get any safer than that.

    Clubs and Activities

    Depending on what academic program a student has chosen could ultimately determine what clubs you may want to participate in (i.e., the Nursing Program has the National Student Nursing Association).

    Great for these types of students

    Motivated and focused students would be extremely happy at Rasmussen.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Rasmussen College is one floor above the Social Security Administration Office, and across the street from the Courthouse and the Probation Office.

    Bang for the buck

    Because it is a private college, there is alot more student computer access, newer lab equipment, highly trained faculty and administrators.

    What to do for fun

    Since the campus is located in the business part of New Port Richey, there is easy access to movie theatres, the mall and restaurants.

    Food and Dining

    The lounge has vending machines or you may bring your own food, but the school is centrally located around numerous restaurants (not just fast food), and the campus is located directly across the street from the Courthouse from what I understand has a food cafe with great pizza.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life at the New Port Richey campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The nursing program started out easy and gets harder as you progress. As long as you keep on top of the curriculum and keep focused, a student should do well at Rasmussen College.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have questions, ask, ask and ask. No question is ever considered the wrong question to ask.

    In three sentences

    I live in the same city as the college that I attend for my nursing degree which is Rasmussen College in New Port Richey and the convenience of getting to school in less than 10 minutes is great compared to having to fight the traffic to travel 30-45 minutes to a university which would be overpopulated with thousands of students and no parking. Rasmussen College is an amazing place for students because they make scheduling for your courses easy through your student portal, send your books straight to your house, and make sure to keep you current and up to date about what is going on through your student email. From the moment that I walked through the door at Rasmussen College they greeted me with a smile and my instructors/other faculty members never hesitated to help with any question or issue that I may have had, they even know me by my voice when I call up to the front administrative office.

    Campus Safety

    Rasmussen College takes the safety of their students to the ultimate level and there is a no tolerance policy for those who go against the policy. I was at the campus last year and a verbal altercation broke out between a student and a teacher and within a few minutes the campus security and other staff members escorted the individual out and they were released later due to the fact that they threatened the teacher and everyone was in fear of their safety.

    Greek Life

    I am unaware of the greek life at Rasmussen College.

    Clubs and Activities

    Rasmussen provides many different opportunities that students, teachers, and faculty can become involved in although there can be certain requirements such as a certain grade point average and overall academic well being. I have not participated in anything as of this time due to all of my outside obligations but I do stay aware of what is being offered. Some of the things that are taking place now include but are not limited to: book studies, work study programs, tutoring groups, workshops on different academic needs.

    Great for these types of students

    Rasmussen is open to all ages, types, and individuals who are serious when it comes to earning a degree in the career of their choice. I find that Rasmussen is flexible and wants only the very best for anyone who is willing to put forth the effort for earning their degree.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Rasmussen has a spirit week in which individuals are able to dress a different way each day of the week such as: eighty's day, hawian day, favorite sports team, and Rasmussen Wear day.

    I have been attending Rasmussen College for two years part time now. I started out in the Early Childhood Education Program but I found out that was not the path that I wanted to take therefore I switched my degree to Business administration and Management. I was just promoted to Administrative Assistant at my current job which is Cintas Corporation and I am very proud. I am seeking out scholarships to help fund my college courses so that the loans will not cause me to have to pay so much back after I graduate. I am pursuing a degree in Human Resource Management and I am looking forward to being an example for my two daughters and help to support the family better. I would rate this college number one in Rockford, Il.

I have taken my family to children's day where they were able to view the college, eat snacks in our cafeteria, play games, do fun activities, and just spend time with me. I find that with a great environment such as this that is why Rasmussen is so successful.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers, the Dean, and everyone at Rasmussen wants the students to be successful and when an achievement such as the honor roll is achieved the person is then recognized and awarded for this. I have been on the Dean's List a few times and I felt wonderful for being able to do so.

    Tips for prospective students

    Rasmussen College is designed for the fast paced learner who is willing to go to any lengths to do what is necessary in order to fulfill their degree. The possibilities that are there for the students are endless and the staff is always there to help when it is needed.

    In three sentences

    Rasmussen College is a great college with endless possibilities that are offered to individuals that would like to further their careers. I find that Rasmussen is continually working towards the best options for me to be able to attend school, work full time, and be a wife and a mother. I would recommend this college to anyone and everyone.

    Periodic campus events for students and families, lots of campus contests offering gift cards to local retailers and scholarships.

    Great for these types of students

    This type of learning is great for those with the self discipline to manage your time and be certain that you're meeting deadlines. Must be able to keep up with a somewhat fast pace.

    The interior corridors near the Financial Aid and Student Advisor offices and meeting rooms are covered in trippy wall to wall carpeting. Love it.

    A bit pricey, but so far it's worth it.

    They offer gatherings periodically with food and activities for students and families at the local campuses.

    It's a fast paced learning environment, but they offer many options for assistance such as interactive live online classrooms, online tutors available any time, and instructors who quickly respond to email.

    It is very reasonable. For an Associates degree in Graphics Design is $20,000. For the whole thing. That's cheaper than a four year college for a semester.

    What to do for fun

    For what I am going for, Graphic Design, I can play with the Adobe Creative Suite Software that they give you. Also you can talk to classmates and instructors at any time.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for an online college that will work with you instead of working around their schedule, Rasmussen College is the College to be in. There is only two to five hours a week that is required and they have online classes that will work around your everyday life. The cost is very reasonable as well.

    One thing I notice is that there are plenty of clubs and activities for on-campus students; however, online students do not have as many opportunities.

    Rasmussen's online division is great for students that are self-lead, self-motivated, and determined to make a positive change in their own life.

    Grammer and Spell check discussion posts by students who should not have met the academic ability requirements for college enrollment

    Academic Rigor

    I came to the health information management program with some background in the subject matter, so found this program to be very academically light weight. I expected to be challenged and learn new things, but was disappointed. In two terms I never once opened a text book and maintained a 4.0 GPA. Weekly discussions can be thought provoking and allow the student to broaden educational horizons beyond the course syllabus with some personal initiative.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have funding you will probably be admitted. The course content is unchallenging with any kind of background in the health care industry, but with personal effort the assignments can be used as a starting point for self educating. If you have no experience with APA 6th edition formatting and citation check out the Purdue OWL sight before beginning classes. Assignments may need to be in this format from day one.

    In three sentences

    I have found this school to be academically light weight, it is possible to complete long term course projects in one day while still achieving an A grade. The instructors are very helpful, but teach straight out of the approved curriculum, which is out of date in some areas for the health information management program. Weekly discussions on instructor selected topics are the most demanding, though provoking assignments offered.

    Very disappointed with Rasmussen online. Everything was going great until my third quarter when I got an instructor who did not grade assignments timely, did not respond to questions and was pretty much not available. I ended up dropping the class and was told I would not be refunded, and would have to repeat the class with no guarantee that I would not get the same instructor. I dropped the class even though I was getting a B in the class because I was not learning what I should to be successful in the class and in future classes, and have since withdrawn from the school. I have filed a BBB complaint, we'll see if I get my money back for this class due to the poor instruction received.

    Definitely look around before you choose because I thought 20,000 was expensive, think again. Also a lot of the staff that you deal with on campus, do not have degrees for there positions, many of them were work studies and worked there way up.

    In three sentences

    Rasmussen college is a very expensive school and there rates are locked in so a rise or decline in the economy will not change the cost per credit. Rasmussen has many options for students to receive help with there studies as well.

    It is just a three story building in an area with a big outside mall next to it.

    Greek Life

    There is no Greek Life. The school is not fully grown.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have no clubs for individuals to be apart of but they inform us of activities we could do within our community, such as Habitat 4 Humanity.

    Great for these types of students

    This is an excellent college for self-motivated students who are committed to pursuing an education in Nursing and other degrees they have on campus. If some students do not learn well in a big class setting, then attend this college and you will be in a class of up to about 20 to 25 students, at the most.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I would not think there were any unusual traditions about this campus but on the flip side this campus is near a big outside mall that individuals venture over too from time to time to free their head or grab a bite to eat.

    Bang for the buck

    This college is a private school, so $395 a credit. Many people think that is a lot but if you are trying to get into a Nursing Program and cannot do so at any of the universities, some individuals would have to take this route and spend the money and get a loan.

    What to do for fun

    The campus is close to a big outside mall, so I believe many individuals who attend this college would go their to grab a bite to eat or shop.

    Food and Dining

    They are no food and dining just yet since they have not yet fully grown as a campus but they are really close but not walking distance, from a big outside mall with a lot of different assortments for food.

    Dorm Life

    They have not fully grown as a campus to have dorms but more people are becoming interested in the college, which is helping it grow.

    Academic Rigor

    I am starting the Nursing Program, so I could only help with the academic rigor in the nursing program. If anyone knows nursing, they know it is not just a walk in the park. This is a rigorous program and individuals have to be on their A game throughout the 11 weeks of class. One strong move or mess up could cost you your continuation on in the program. Key tip: Study for every test as if it was your last.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not be scared to ask your teacher if you do not understand something. The class sizes are made for each person to feel comfortable in the enviorment and be able to ask questions.

    In three sentences

    Rasmussen is a small school with a big inspiration to help change individuals' career's. The college makes sure everyone receives undivided attention in order to prosper. Every employee of the college is well educated and wants each student to achieve the very best.

    What to do for fun

    There are clubs such as the gaming club, and there is leisure books found in the library. There are also occasional cultural nights and outside meetings.

    This is a single building college. The food is the vending machine and the dining is the library or classrooms that are not in use.

    There is no campus dorm. There are apartments in abundance near the facility, but this is not a community college.

    Academic Rigor

    It can be easy, or hard depending on your mindset and ambition (the more effort you put in, the more you get out of the classes). It is hard to describe this in more detail. I have seen some students go for the grade, and some students go for the material and substance of the education.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is unfortunately a not-for-profit college and there is some difficulty in taking classes outside of the required curriculum, but that tends to not be an issue for most students. This is a good college if you have a regular life outside of it. The teachers are also very personable and will help you learn more than is required if you want, or the college has tutors and faculty willing to provide more assistance if you need.

    Rasmussen is similar to a small community, where the people are very helpful and friendly. It is primarily an evening and online college, but it really does help with placing you in a job in your field. It has a lot of resources to help with your college success.

    It is considered a private college and for me and my current career choice, all books, clinical insurance, scrubs, etc are included in tuition which is pretty amazing. Also, if you have left over aid after the quarter or semester ends, you have the option of either sending the money back to the lender or to you. I love this option and was never aware that this was possible. Everything you need is included into the tuition.

    I would advise current college seekers to definitely take a look at Rasmussen as a college of choice and make the attempt to get to know the staff and the school because they would be blown away by how much interaction and attention each student gets. They make sure that you are put to where you not only want to be but where you need to be.

    Rasmussen is dedicated to the success of their students and has applied and dedicated their everyday job in order to make their students comfortable with not only a simple thing such as the student's schedule all the way to financial aid.

The communication and interaction with the students and future students is so amazing it's almost overwhelming in a positive way.

    Though I'm barely beginning my journey here I have to say that the staff has been so supportive and they show so much enthusiasm in helping as much as possible. I like the fact that it's small, designated to two floors only, so it's not overwhelming at all. I can see myself crossing that stage in no time!

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask lots of questions. I had a great adviser that helped answer questions and get the ball rolling. Don't rush into school if your are on the fence about a major or career field really think about it I have been in a situation where I thought I knew and it turned out a design major was a better fit for me. Make sure your able to balance school and your life.
