AB-Tech is a great school, especially for those who want to knock out 2 years before heading to a university. It has a variety of programs that target a lot of career paths and it's a good school for career exploring. The college is affordable and it's obvious that every teacher is passionate about teaching and improving the lives of their students.
I took a variety of classes online and each class was very well taught. I took a math class, a humanities class, and a couple of others online. Personally, I feel as though you can get more out of the classes if you take them online.
Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College is an amazing choice. The teachers and counselors are very supportive and hands on.
Most of the classes offered can be taken as hybrid courses. The professors always respond back in a quick time and try to fix any problems you are going through, making the online process smooth.
I would highly recommend staying away from their online classes! The absolute majority of online classes are grossly inadequate. There appears to be zero oversight of the process altogether. Instructors seem to get to chose whether they actually teach or not. Many treat online classes like their sole purpose is to just check Moodle for your assignments.
Very good school with dedicated teachers who want the best for the students. Very inclusive and diverse as well.
Some professors have been better than others. Some have been a little too disorganized, but most teachers have made everything easy to navigate.
I have really enjoyed my time at AB Tech. The professors are professional, and the student demographic is a lot more diverse than your average four-year university. I've met so many interesting people and taken so many interesting classes. The courses here are academically challenging, engaging, and well-organized.
The online and hybrid classes take place on Moodle, which is relatively easy to navigate and well-organized. The professors reach out a LOT, and are just as engaging and helpful as an in-person class.
I have had some great professors at AB-Tech and in those classes I have learned and retained the coarse material well. I have had a few professors that did not work for me, but AB-Tech does allow you to withdraw from classes with minimal impact easily.
My classes became online classes during the pandemic. I think that for having to transition quickly to a new style, my instructors did very well. It was definitely an adjustment but it worked out well.
I love my program, Hospitality Management. We get so much experience with real-life scenarios and hands-on training.
When starting to register for classes, try to use rate my professor because each professor has their strengths and weaknesses. The Writing Center is an incredible resource that I recommend everyone go to on a regular basis. A-B Tech is a great place to start your college experience because you get the realities of being a college student while also having access to resources that teach you coping skills to the new work load. The cafe on campus would be my biggest complaint but there are plenty of places to eat in Biltmore next to campus.
I have had some very great as well as some difficult professors with AB Tech. Overall the school does very well to support the students. 9/10 professors want you to succeed and will actually help you in the class. The class sizes are generally small. Going to class is so important. The small class sizes make it easy to ask questions. It really helps you create a relationship with the teacher and allows you to have better success. The counselors for financial aid, as well as general advising, are super helpful. If they can't answer your question they will find someone for you who can. I have had very few occasions where my question went unanswered. This affordable and well-structured school is definitely the place to start regardless of if you are not quite sure what path in life you want to pursue or if you are starting your college career.
The instructors are easy to communicate with and reources are available to every student. Buildings and resources are all nearby so accessing materials and classes were easy.
I am currently a high school student that goes to abtech for all of my classes. I have/am taking Anatomy 168 and 169, statistics 151, art 111, english 241, and sociology 210 in the past semester and this semester. These classes have prepared me for a 4 year college I will be going to, the professors are great, and very willing to help. I am thankful for this experience and I am willing to take the next steps toward a 4 year university to better my education.
This community college has a myriad of programs for students just leaving high school to those returning adults after years in various industries. It is affordable and the programming is robust.
