Anna Maria College Reviews
I love Anna Maria College so very much! It is truly a community where people are friendly and service-oriented. I have felt most comfortable being who I truly am here and I know that others do, as well. Yes, it is a college founded by the catholic Sisters of Saint Anne, but all are welcome here. I have been inspired by the campus ministry director who invites all to be who they are and practice what they believe even at religious-based celebrations. Oh, and the campus grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. I have always felt safe walking around the whole campus, including in the nature that surrounds the campus, even in the night. Be sure to visit the pond near the back in between classes.
Everything is great. The professors would help the students get internships so they can get a good feel of the field they are in! Everyone has to earn a position in everything. I agree that if a person works hard enough, then that person should be rewarded and the staff agree with this rule. The quality of employers recruiting on campus is a great one in my opinion. The services on campus are outstanding. They offer tutors to those who need extra help! There are a few great places on campus to study. The staff/faculty are very friendly and they do their very best. There are great services there. The food is not that bad. There's a mailroom. The campus police would give any service. Overall, the quality of the school is a good one and I would recommend anybody to enroll at Anna Maria.
I am a nursing student and I know that nursing school isn't easy, but I also know that professors shouldn't want their students to fail either. When it comes to certain classes such as anatomy and chemistry the school itself knows how much students struggle and have a hard time yet they still do not provide enough help in the student success center. Also, they do not have the same regulations for everyone. There is an older lady I know, she got kicked out of the program because she had failed a class yet another girl failed anatomy and chemistry and is still in the nursing program. They treat each individual differently and tell them different things, which is not fair. There are specific teachers who fail many students every semester yet the school doesn't see it as a problem with the teacher they see it as a problem with the students, when that teacher has humiliated girls in class such as calling a girl fat simply because her lab coat did not fit, she is nowhere near fat.
