    I was recommended to this college by another college advisor. This is a great choice for someone looking to get the hands on technical side of a degree. Plus it is easy going and quick to correct any issues you have.

    The standards are set high in attendance, participation and deadlines. Most teachers don't accept late homework and some deduct points for being late or leaving early.

    Metro State is an EXCELLENT education for the price. I have not seen many places that come in cheaper, but the professors are great and I've even had professors tell me that they teach the same text as much more expensive schools. They do go out and check to see that they are staying competitive with other schools to ensure that we're getting a good education.
