In the first year, the financial aid department did absolutely everything they could to make sure you were all set for your first year but after that they really left me high and dry struggling to figure out how to pay for school. That was my biggest issue with the school. The faculty and staff all have been pretty great when it came to communicating and such. They were especially awesome during the pandemic with assisting student in trying to maneuver any issues that I have run into while transitioning into fully remote so abruptly. The school has really taken as much action as they could to ensure all students, faculty, and staff remain safe during the pandemic. Although, I hate the fact that some professors were given the choice to conduct their classes remote even though I chose to take the in person route to part take in my classes. I have a hard time learning remote and wish that I would because to have the in person experience that I have signed up for.

Choosing to transfer to Albertus Magnus College after earning my prerequisites at a local community college was one of the best financial decisions I've made thus far in life. It was also one of the most beneficial. Albertus Magnus College is a small private Catholic college where professors take personal interest in there students and want to see them excel. To this day, I stay in touch with my professors at Albertus and seek them out for advice as I continue to navigate academic and professional realms outside of the institution. Attending Albertus Magnus College, to me, was a great decision.
Unfortunately I do have a couple classes that are online. One of my classes is completely on your own which I do not like at all. I signed up for the classes with the understanding that I would be getting the in person experience as I am a student who is more successful when I am able to have that in person experience. My other class that is online is not as bad as we do have class calls where the professor goes over a PowerPoint which I enjoy. I wish that I had the knowledge of how exactly the classes were conducted before I signed up other wise I would have chosen very different courses.
