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.
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.
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.
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.
As an international student learning in Zambia, never did I feel left out. Even with the distance and only a screen connecting me to the rest of the family, I felt fully part of it all. When I arrived and started taking some classes in person, it was even better than amazing. This was my first Christmas away from home but not once did I feel alone because of the Albertus family. A home away from home indeed!
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.
The staff is very helpful. The dorms are a bit dated but still nice. The campus is beautiful. It's close enough to Downtown New Haven so that students can enjoy themselves away from campus.
So far the online experience has been good. The courses offered online have been solid. The work has been presented and accessible.
I did have to take online courses because of the COVID-19 pandemic. My experience during those online courses was excellent. All of my professors made it evident that they worked hard to get the students great academic criteria. I finished with a higher GPA than my in class semester.
I am proud to attend Albertus Magnus College. I personally feed that I belong in this school and the professor are beyond amazing. I feel that the staff and faculty are extremely helpful and are available outside of classroom hours. I believe that this campus goes above and beyond and stop at nothing to excel excellence.
I absolutely love my online classes. I am in charge of my own schedule and I am able to get the work done within a reasonable time frame. I feel like I have a bit more freedom to do my own work and I am not constantly being reminded to submit assignments. I can access my e-learning portal from work, home or at the park. What better way to attend classes than at the tip of your fingers?
The admissions staff made the process of enrollment a very informative and seamless process. As an adult student, return to college can be intimidating. The options Albertus provides allow for a working adult to have a successful academic career.
I'm glad that there's a program with blended learning - it's great for a full-time working parent. I love going to the campus, but I also like having the flexibility of online classwork.
I really like how diverse the college is and how everyone is so friendly and able to get along with each other
The community at Albertus Magnus College is very involved, tightly-knit, and familiar. The majority of the professors are phenomenal, insightful, and very human as you get to know them, but there are always bad apples that cause discontent among the student body.
Albertus is a pretty decent school. Tuition is ridiculous, but the classes are really interesting. The teachers are really dedicated, and the class sizes small, so you get a lot of one on one interacting.
I'm attending Albertus Magnus College as a Graduate Students. Pursuing a degree in Creative Writing. The program at Albertus is amazing. The classes are small. The professors are very accommodating too. The school is located centrally so it's very easy to get to, right off the highway.
