Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The classes are good and I appreciated the distance-learning (COVE) features of the courses I took. This made note-taking much less stressful. Parking has slightly improved over the years, but it is still very difficult to find parking in the first few weeks of the Fall semester. Plan to arrive on campus an hour ahead of when your classes start and you should be fine. Also, the Financial Aid Office has done an excellent job with helping students get the financial aid they need.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

The social work program helps you become a better social work student of the field to understand more what our future clients will go through. Our purpose will to assess, observe, and recommend what our client will want to accomplish and the program did its duty to uplift these actions to move forward in our field of practice. I believe social workers are desperately needed to act as a cornerstone for those who are struggling. The reason I show favor to the program, because social workers are there for the well being of their clients. At this time of economic downturn, it is the duty of social workers to fulfill theses unmet needs of adults, families, and children under pressure and trying to find another route to live that American Dream.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is a CACREP certified program and it is rate number 11 in the United States of America for Counselor Education. The cons of my program are the commute, parking, and the limitations in online courses.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros- My graduate program education is providing me the insight and knowledge of a most spectacular career in information technology. I will have more opportunities to pursue a variety of careers whether it be in healthcare, education, or government programs. This program is providing the best education, and yet I can still work almost full time. Cons- This program is very time consuming, and it definitely has taken over my entire life. The time limit on projects are at times too short, which adds more stress. Most of all, it is too expensive and will cost me alot when I graduate, due to the loans I am borrowing.

The support provided by the faculty in the Instructional Systems Design program is great. They constantly help students to achieve their potential academically while also providing an overview of the industry in the non-academic setting. The course-load is balanced and the assignments are designed to be part of the broader picture. I love the way the program has been designed with a wide variety of electives to suit every need. Also the classes are interactive and highly discussion based.

The biggest advantage of graduate program is the potential increase in salary and job options. The biggest disadvantage of graduate program is the cost of tuition.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

I entered this program as a way to enhance my science background for medical school. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The faculty are extremely knowledgeable and very helpful in your career aspirations. Additionally, the classwork is challenging, but I feel as if I have learned more in my past year and a half than I did in all my past studies. I would strongly recommend this program to everyone.
