    Strayer University gives you the option to chose the electives you want and which basic sciences you want to take. The professors are great teachers and show their experience through their teachings and advice.

    Campus Safety

    The campus and neighborhood is safe for the most part. Mainly because the city cops in Chesapeake are no nonsense and one of their departments is about half a mile up the street from the campus.

    Greek Life

    Again, I am still research this aspect of the college.

    Clubs and Activities

    I haven't seend any clubs or activities that the college offer but I am still researching that.

    Great for these types of students

    Online students, business students, full time job students, and students with young children will thrive at this college because of the flexible class schedules.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None to my knowlegde as of yet.

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to my old college, I am saving about $4000 a term and still I have the respect of attending a great college.

    What to do for fun

    Within a 3 radius of the campus, there is not much to do for besides shopping and eating. I love eating but not that big of a shopper.

    Food and Dining

    My campus is in a location where there is many different restaurants to eat at. However, the main intersection in very busy so if you hate traffic, this may be a negative for you.

    Dorm Life

    I don't believe Strayer offers Dorms to stay in.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel that just about all of the courses the offer in certificate, diploma, Associates, Bachelors, and Master Degree programs will prepare any student for the workforce once they have graduate or advance their careers.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips for prospective students would be to have an idea of what they want to major in and I all of your unofficial transcripts in hand if your transferring in. Also make sure that the right fafsa form is already complete and you choose them as one of the schools to receive it. This will make the process go much smoother and faster.

    In three sentences

    From the moment I walk in, the staff was so helpful and kind. They listened to my needs and worked with me to come up with the best academic plan. I am excited to start school again this spring with Strayer because they make me feel like they care about me.

    Campus Safety

    The buildings are locked for the evening hours after the first class starts. The security officer will walk you to your car if he sees that you are going out the door by yourself and will stand nearby until you start up your vehicle. I have never seen such caring people at any other institutions before.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Strayer will develop a curriculum class and bring in a professor to teach the class when a subject of interest is presented by students. The class needs at least 5 students to be enrolled in order for the class to be researched and offered. I think this is a great idea that I have never experienced in any other college or university setting before.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes require discipline and dedication on the part of the student. The professors are there to assist with extra tutoring on any subject matter that the student may encounter to be too difficult. Attendenance is of stressed and of utmost importance in order not to fall behind on lesson plans.

    Tips for prospective students

    Please make sure you are willing to make a commitment to your future. The professors and all staff are educators that are dedicated to helping you succeed. If you are willing to give 100 percent they are willing to give that and more. The selection of topics on their curriculum is overwhelming for the business administration and criminal justice programs. I love this school and wish I had enrolled sooner.

    Look at many different colleges. You want to make sure you find a school that has everything that you are looking for. If possible visit the campus talk to students that are currently attending the school you choose. Get as much information as possibles before making your final decision. Finally enjoy the ride. You want this to be a time that you never forget something you can share with your children and grand children years from now.

    In three sentences

    Academic Rigor

    Three Stars. The academic level of courses can be a beast. If taking more than one course, plan ahead of time to see identify whats ahead. Work on each subject an hour to two hours a day so that you won't get behind which can become overwhelming.

    Tips for prospective students

    If your a student and looking for a college that fits your agenda, Strayer is it! The professors are sensitive when it comes to students agendas outside of the campus.

    Campus Safety

    I take online classes but I have been on campus. And I can assure that there are no campus safety issues. The campus is in a well lit, beautiful building and the entire 2nd floor is dedicated to the campus classes. The location of the school is in a very good area.

    Clubs and Activities

    The campus does offer clubs and activities. But for online students, most of the time, work trumps clubs and activities. But for anyone who has the time to participate in clubs and activities they can find many.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for all types of students. Single mothers, married people, people with and without kids. Students who may have struggled while acquiring their undergraduate degree will find relief in the graduate program where only one class, 4.5 credit hours, is required at one time.

    Bang for the buck

    This school is a decent bang for the buck. The books will be shipped to you after getting the book voucher from the school and shipping charges are included. Never use basic ground shipping, always strive for the $13 shipping deal, or more, otherwise your books get lost in the mail, and never arrive.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging and the papers will be graded efficiently. Always check for errors and use your spell check. You are only required to take one class at 4.5 credit hours and only have to manage your life and schedule around one class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't worry if you need extra time on your assignments because the Professors work with you. Expect at least 4-6 writing assignments per class 6-8 pages long. The students in the classes all seem to want to succeed and will give useful comments in discussions.

    In three sentences

    The initial sign up process, to get the money, came with ease. After the initial sign up process, it was difficult to receive any feedback from my financial aid representative. Actually, she has not called me back yet. Financial aid is sometimes a hassle.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get everything in writing. Don't ever have a major illness nobody cares If you take online courses read the entire textbook from front to back and take small quizzes in the back don't take complicated courses such as Descriptive Statistics online you need to go on campus for that.

Also they are an accredited school that is interested in helping you succeed.

    Bang for the buck

    I have to pay out of pocket to complete my final four classes because the FA office didn't inform me that I had used all of my student loan money up. This is the same loan that when I applied for completely stated that I was borrowing enough money to complete my degree. Well the money has disappeared due to tuition constantly going up higher and higher each year. So now I'm in an awful position as a honor student who has worked so hard to accomplish my goal and put in this type of position.

    Academic Rigor

    I give Strayer an A for academics and a F for FA Office.

    Tips for prospective students

    Great school for working Adults and anyone looking for a quality education. Please make sure you stay on top of how much money you borrow from your student loan or you will be in the same boat as I am now. I have to pay out of pocket for my last four classes because the FA office didn't inform me that I had exhausted my student loan until I registered for my classes. This put me in an unfortunate position.

    In three sentences

    Strayer is a great school to attend for higher learning. Online Professors are excellent and will respond to your email in a timely matter, which is awesome. FA office sucks!!!!! nothing is ever done right and it takes a long time for them to resolve the issues they've created.

There is no balance with online classes meaning it is extremely difficult to read six chapters, write 2 to 3 papers, or post 12 discussions for two classes in one week.

    There is no problem so big or small that you can't get help with it. Nothing worth achieving is ever easy but the journey is worth it. There is always someone here to assist you with your delimas so that you can get back to the task of learning.

    Tips for prospective students

    I don't mean to say this is not a good school, just don't let the recruiters talk you into enrolling without doing your own due diligence. Ask a LOT of questions and, if you can, talk to some active students for their feedback.

    In three sentences

    They do have good degree programs but, Caveat emptor... I transferred here from doing solely online classes in hopes of doing some on campus classes along with online. Although there are three campuses in my area, the classes I needed the most were never available on campus when I was required to take them. My financial aid was also mishandled, but I was able to work something out to get tuition taken care of.

    Online school is definitely hard if you are the type of person that needs to have someone in front of you guiding you and that face to face one on one instruction. Be proactive, it will help you in not only your studies but with your loans and your financial aid. It will also help you in life overall. Practice, practice and practice it really does make perfect.

    In three sentences

    If you are considering online schools this is a good choice, but remember you need to keep on yourself, no one else is going to make sure that you are doing all the things you need to do. Make sure that you keep on top of your financials and loans, sometimes things are not explained completely and you are left in the end with a mess that could literally be what prevents you from getting your degree. The books and online labs are very helpful and you should use the tutoring that is offered if you find yourself in need!

    Been going for over 3 years of night classes and never once had a problem and a security guard is usually on duty and will walk you to your car.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have SAG and we help with student appreciation week, student and teacher awards and at my campus we are trying to put together clubs based on majors and such.

    Great for these types of students

    Strayer is a good choice for anyone, really good for business majors has lots of recognition for their business program. As of right now, my campus only has evening classes and some on Saturday mornings, so it works great for people that work days as well and if you do online classes they fit everyone's schedule!

    Bang for the buck

    They are cheaper, than half the colleges by me and it is a really good school.

    What to do for fun

    They do games at student appreciation week, which is cool and we do different things in SAG.

    Food and Dining

    Well at my campus there is no dinning hall but they have student appreciation week and always cook different dishes for us, which is really nice.

    Dorm Life

    My campus does not have housing units but all the staff are great and have been really nice to me, theres been one or two professors I didn't see eye to eye with but you will get that anywhere you go and for the most part they really try to help. The University is always clean and secure with lovely decor.

    Academic Rigor

    I have really enjoyed all my courses so far, the have all been thought provoking and mentally stimulating.

    Tips for prospective students

    A lot of the books you need for courses are sold for little to nothing on Amazon, wish I would have figured that out in the beginning, Strayer does give you a book voucher your first 3 quarters months there, (at least they did when I signed up) but after that the voucher you get is just an early release of your funds and if u don't use it, you get it back. Also, theres lots of courses you can test out of, which will shorten the degree process a lot. Also, plan plan plan! What all the costs will be, length of time the degree program will take, what courses you need and always make time to study! You can read your books on lunch and breaks at work, just make time and focus and you will do great!

    In three sentences

    I have really enjoyed my time with Strayer and would recommend them to anyone, but we are all different and you should always tour the campus of any college your interested in, and see what they have to offer you, accredited, best courses of your selected major and cost.

    I would advised any student starting or past students to keep up with you academic and finance it is important to complete you goal. Always ask question and seek solutions to your questions. Complete your goal and become one of Strayer University graduate, but most of all use your degree. Good luck.

    Strayer may not be well know as the other top rated schools.and if all your seeking is the status and recognition of other school because of there names attached to it well that is the wrong way to look at the college or university you want to attend.Because the price for a two or four year college,is no different if your living on campus or off. Strayer can give you the same desired education as any other high priced school,for a lower tutition price think I am kidding that check it out and compare the prices for yourself.

    Academically, Strayer is profound. They have several classes that fit to your needs and you learn a lot about the subject in an 11 week process. It may not seem that long to learn something, but you get a crash course in the subject and you come out a better more well rounded student.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you join Strayer as a current student be sure to only speak to one person for your time. For example, your financial adviser and your admissions specialist. Only speak to those two people. If they aren't there for the day wait to speak to them tomorrow. The communication skills are not very good when communicating what you need to turn in and get done for your FAFSA and other items for their school.

    In three sentences

    Strayer University has been good to me. They have found scholarships for me and have helped me through my hardships. They have also caused some hardships for me as well though. They need to work on their communication skills among the team of financial advisers & admissions specialists.

    Of all of the Colleges or Universities that I have attended, Strayer University is by far the best. State Colleges and outside Universities do not hold a candle to their staff and alumni support. I am 51 years old and I rate Strayer University overall the best University nationwide. See for yourself, you will understand where I am coming from. My biology Professor recently emailed me and asked if there was anything that she could do to help with some of my studies, (I am not a lab person) because I was not doing so well in my online labs. I explained to her that labs was a bit difficult for me, and she reset the labs and gave me other chances to get through the labs. If there was any questions that I had for her I could reach her via telephone and email. It is refreshing to know that your professors are always available to assist you, including giving you tips on how to get through the lessons with teacher insights and online lectures.

    Always check out the staff and speak with a number of their current students when choosing a College or University. Yes there may be some disgruntled students, those are only students that have not tried to push themselves and thought they would have a free ride through a College or University. A few does not make up the whole student body. You make the experience that you want it to be. Do not let others could your judgement with negativity, decide for yourself. What God has put forth for you to do is his will.

    The Student Adviser's are awesome. There is never a time when they are not in contact with you, checking up on your progress. If there is anything regarding your enrollment and your success in education they are there to assist you, and they make sure that if they cannot reach you via telephone, they reach out to you via email. Financial Aid department are on their job. They have made sure that every effort possible and if anything arises they also contact you to explain the process, answer questions etc. The Strayer University Professors are a complete positive influence. They also reach out to the students to assist one on one with any help that may be needed. I was having an IT problem and even which the IT department a great as well, they are always there to call, my professor took the problem and fixed it on her end. Over all I have recommended several people to this University and they are having an exhilarating experience, and asked themselves why they have not considered this University before. Many times its not in the name of the College, but explore and research all of the value that others have gotten out of the College or University. Their alumni have had the same great experiences with the university's staff from as far back as 1929. Isn't that an wonderful legacy to have. Strayer University has a lot of activities for its students. there is never a dull moment. Online classes are just as enriching as campus classes. An A++++ to Strayer University Staff and Alumni.

    There is no dorm at the university I attend, but I would imagine if it was it would be fun. This university is geared more towards working adults so I am not sure how full it would be if they did. A dorm full of working adults, that have a family to take care at home would be quite a getaway. No kids. No cooking.

    I am a Business major with a concentration in Accounting so I expect the coursework to be challenging, if it wasn't I would be concerned. You have a quiz every week if you are taking online classes, but I am not sure how the classroom setting is.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are considering taking online classes then take your non major classes online and your major classes in the classroom. If that is not possible I would at least try to take the first class in the classroom so you can have a greater understanding of the course work

    Based on my time at the school I would rate it a 7. Taking online classes is supposed to convenient but having to post on the discussion board 2 separate days out the week can be very time consuming when you have to work and take care of a family. On the upside, the teachers are very encouraging and willing to help you understand the material in the best way possible. They check on you regularly to see how your class experience is going and making sure you understand all you need to know.
