Bates Technical College Reviews

Diana who works with steilacoom cooperative preschool talks down to people and likes to assume that she knows everything. For an instructor who teaches education for children, she sure likes to talk extremely negatively towards children. Also, she likes to self- diagnose children and highlight every negative thing without saying ANYTHING positive to the parents. Bravo to Bates for finding such a gem to make parents feel so horrible. I'm grateful that my child isn't old enough to understand what she heard in the hall about her. This is what leads kids to commit suicide! It appears to me that Bates likes to stand behind bullies like Diana.
I still haven't started yet but the instructors are great, I love the campus. Reason why applied to bates is so that I can study for my production/ broadcasting program.
So far, my experience with bates has been good. The advisor, Brandon, is absolutely fantastic at his job and will help his students tremendously
I really like being able to take night classes. The instructors were wonderful. I have been able to learn and retain new skills.
I love bates because the faculty and teachers really want the best learning experience for you! They are super helpful in both signing up for classes and understanding that life happens.
Bates Technical College made it very easy to go to school and achieve my educational goals. The staff is very friendly and answers questions promptly. If I needed help with something, I did not have to wait long. Bates also has several programs to support students throughout their college careers. This helped me to have extra funding for housing and things, allowing me to focus on my education.
The thing I like the most about Bates Technical College is the professors. I'm currently enrolled in the Digital Media program and the professors have been and are currently in the industry so their knowledge is up to date and geared towards industry standards. I would like to see all students back in class instead of being forced online.
No Athletics or Dorm/Housing. Amazing school overall though with teachers that actually want to help you learn, and nearly 24/7 support with tutors once enrolled with Bates. If you personally feel the professors won't help, the tutors 100% will.
There is no security at night and the doors are open to the public. Homeless people come in filthy for haircuts. The night instructor Andrea is a nightmare. She sleeps with her male students, plays favorites, complains about her life, sociopath.
My instructor was not familiar with the online teaching, tends to divert from the topic too often, leading to too long of a meeting. Jot enough hands on
I like how hands on learning at bates is. However, they could be more organized in their way of giving information
Classes are well organized, easy to access. Feedback and help is just a click away. Lectures are all available online so I can watch them at my leisure. I am able to use canvas to keep track of my upcoming assignments so that I can make sure that I get things completed on time.
Great school, whether you are looking to learn skills to enter the workforce immediately or to transfer to a 4yr college. It is a great and affordable option, I'm glad I chose to attend, I only wish that I could have done it sooner.
Bates Technical College makes it simple for you to transfer into a college lifestyle. All of the staff are friendly and willing to work with you. Couldn’t have picked a better school to start my career.
The college has an in campus as well as online classes. I will be attending there in September of 2019. The college isn't that large which is nice. The staff all were friendly and informative. I was impressed that they remember my name when I enrolled.
The are in the downtown campus isn't the greatest, but I got into the program I needed without any problems and am excited to start my career.
My instructors are awesome!! They find different ways to explain stuff or find someone to explain stuff in a different way when we don't understand a new concept or theory. As students we form a bond with our classmates like being in a family. We help each other out as much as we can. I've met some really great people here at Bates Technical College. The best part.....Your instructors actually help you find a job!!!
