it is very fun i love all my classes all of my professors are very nice and the sports teams are really good
I think that Albertus has been a great experience so far. The community of staff and students is welcoming and encourages a positive environment for learning and self-growth. I see myself succeeding here at Albertus Magnus College, surrounded by others with big dreams and aspirations.
It’s good for people that like small schools and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The people all know each other and the education in the science department is perfect because they provide you with the classes needed to prepare you for grad school
So far my school has indicated that it is very supportive of its students. I prefer the smaller sized campus.
What I really like about Albertus the most is the professors that were very helpful throughout my freshman year. I am a sport management major and my professor was absolutely amazing. A little bit of communication can go a long way at this school. The campus is beautiful and the professors are always willing and looking to help out with whatever you may need.
So far, studying at Albertus Magnus College has been a nice experience. Though I have only studied for 2 years and online, I feel like professors and staff are 24/7 available to help the students.
My first year my academic advisor didn’t give me any of the classes I wanted to take for my major which set me back a little but still got figured out. My second year there I had a mice problem in my building that was could have been controlled in a better way so my roommates and I took matters into our own hands and basically got rid of the infestation.
Professors give one on one attention and the small class size is conducive to achieving overall success.
I like everything about Albertus Magnus College. I'm a working mother and I attend school at night and the classes are great in size. I just like the overall experience.
It’s amazing! I had a lot of fun going here great people and great professional teachers I had a great time
It's honestly what you make of it. If you have a positive mindset, you'll love this place. If you're more on the pessimistic side, you'll hate this place. I feel mixed on this place. Some areas they thrive in, while others they lack in. The diversity here is off the charts, while the cafeteria food is absolutely disgusting.
What I liked about albertus, is how important they have us students feel, were their number one focus. I never grew up being catholic but the tradition this school sets for everyone, you’re not judge based off your background were all like a family being it’s a small school. Professor will really stick their neck out for students having trust and believing in them and thats how i felt, It made me want to strive for me, even though i’ll make a mistake they understood it happens, I never got scold for it. They’ll just ask me if everything alright making sure I’m not slacking or if anything has happened to me. Also being a part of the lacrosse team was also a big welcoming for me as well, as a team were like brothers, checking on each other making sure were in a good head space, joking around going through adversity together. As a junior entering my spring semester, Im glad to have chosen a college like this one.
My online learning at albertus was very tough at first, it wasn’t the schools fault it was just the pandemic itself that made it hard. But albertus made the online learning experience as great as they can going in to my junior of fall semester there was a big improvement with the online learning, the professors were more patient with the students, they tried making the most out of what they can trying to lecture the class online, the school implemented hybrid where half the class would be on campus in the class room following covid protocols while the other class is on remote learning on a big screen on the side of the class room facing the professor. There were a lot of difficulty with communication I’ve notice with the professor trying to lecture both on campus and remote learning, eventually a month into the classes the professor didn’t really have a problem as well as the students handling the online remote experience. Everyone handled it in a well professional manner.
There was a very thin line between online and in-person classes. The only difference was having few people in class. I could easily see the board in hybrid format and take notes. When I was unable to, the professors scanned the notes taken by the student who were in class and sent them.
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.
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.
So far the online experience has been good. The courses offered online have been solid. The work has been presented and accessible.
