Am learning a lot
The first week you will feel like you are not really learning much, but it gets better. Some of the classes are made to be easier for the students
Am enjoying being here
Everyone here is pretty nice. The teachers are really great. Most of the make huge efforts to help their students excel in their class.
Bang for the buck
The tuition is very cheap in comparison to other colleges. The tuition is currently $131 per credit hour and this covers fees, parking, student ID and your classes. The books are pretty high, but most teachers will try to help you find a cheaper alternative.
Tips for prospective students
Don't buy your books until you have had your first class. I bought all mine the week before classes started, all a bunch of people had books that were a lot cheaper. I would have done this but the online bookstore is not vary specific on their text book policy. Wait until your professor gives you instructions.
Great for these types of students
Looking to go back to college; Looking to receive your basics; Great for nursing; Students who want a Vocational Certificate or an Associates degree; Those who are looking for a cheaper education, but still want a quality education.
