Am learning a lot
Before I came to UNOH, I knew almost nothing about cars. After one year here, I have already had a full-time job offer with an ARCA series race team when I graduate. I've now been here for a year and a half, and am starting my second full season working with Andy Belmont Racing through the school's Race Club program.
Am enjoying being here
For us students that are an intern on an ARCA team, we are allowed to miss class days to travel to races. It doesn't get any better than that - we travel the country, race on live TV, and get excused from class to do so. Also, we only have class FOUR days a week to begin with!
Bang for the buck
For the ARCA team members, we have a car that we practice pit stops on. The school pays for our equipment when something breaks. And like I said before, we only have class four days a week. You also only have one class at a time so you aren't trying to keep up on homework for several different classes - you only have one to worry about.
Tips for prospective students
Don't live in the dorms. Get an off-campus apartment. It's cheaper and the dorms have ridiculous rules.
Great for these types of students
Great for someone that is independent. If you love cars, race cars, or diesel, this is the place for you.

Am learning a lot
The classes are great i have been learning since i had stepped in the door. i have been getting a lot of hands on experience and a lot of time to talk with the instructor if i were in need of help.
Am enjoying being here
i am in the Drag Club here and its pretty sweet we have a s-15 truck, 69 cougar with spray,a long rail car, a short rail car, and we just recently got a foxbody mustang that is a newest project.
Bang for the buck
It is most definatly the best bang for the buck. u get just as much class time along with shop time so u get the book smarts and the shop smarts.
Tips for prospective students
The winters here are a little rough. i recommend bringing a heavy winter coat.

In three sentences
I am very impressed with the orientation and ease of starting college at this school. I enjoyed the test days for scholarships they provided, with touring of the school. This has been a great experience so far with beginning college.
Tips for prospective students
If you can attend the testing days they offer to new incoming students for scholarships, that was very helpful for me. You also can do tours at that time and get to know the school and what it has to offer. I am now moving from Florida to attend this school and I feel very comfortable going there for college.
Academic Rigor
This is a 5 star college. It has all the top of the line equipment we will need to get our education. They have small class sizes which will help with the learning environment. This also allows the students in the automotive field to have easy access to equipment needed in the lab settings.
Dorm Life
they offer two different types of dorms. They are like an apartment setting. You have your own little kitchen area. They allow extra refridgerators. They give a list of students to help set up your move in for furniture/etc.
Food and Dining
Meal plans offered are easy to use and include local restaurants as well. 5 star
What to do for fun
They have Lima Raceway with weekly races. Some of the Nascar Drivers do come and race there. The movies and area shopping are just blocks away.
Bang for the buck
You have small class sizes. They have great tuition prices.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
They have a new state of the art facility for working out. It includes yoga Karate classes. Barnes and Nobles bookstore for ease of buying school books.
Great for these types of students
People looking to get into the automotive field. It also is goodfor many other types of degrees. I especially am in the High performance engines and I love the environment.
Clubs and Activities
They have a wide range of clubs, like drifting, learning to race in them will be fun.
Greek Life
I enjoy the activities they offer for students.
Campus Safety
Dorms are monitored and they offer a secure environment for the students.
