One of the main reasons I chose Kaplan College was its environment. Its staff is well connected, very helpful and friendly with its students from assuring students transportation and academic struggles to personal life situations. Every week or so different faculty and staff members visit our classes in order to hand out information on any subject we have questions, comments or concerns for which really helps with having a busy schedule and not having time to visit each department ourselves. I enjoy building a friendship with my staff, faculty and teachers as I also enjoy attending this very friendly atmosphere I have chosen to study at.

I honestly feel I couldn't have made a better choice in enrolling at Kaplan College. Unlike other colleges I carefully over viewed to starting my future Kaplan stood out immediately. It had a much more comfortable and friendly environment and open staff, it offered a more secure and fast way to getting the degree I wanted, and it was at a very convenient location. I enjoy attending my school as it makes my day better only seeing my teachers, staff, faculty, and students happy to see me making the right choice to study with them and pursuing a great rewarding career. Everyday I learn something new with many hands-on training assignments and procedure practices. Also with the helping hands of my friendly staff I can be assured that if I have any situation that may interfere with my studies they'll be there for me to push me through. I am very pleased with my college selection and I would definitely look forward to continue attending here until my day of graduation.
There are many things I enjoy about my College. One I am very grateful Kaplan offers night classes therefore they don't interfere with my work schedule. Second I love the small classes and student body because it creates a closer bond with its staff, faculty, teachers, and students. This also helps ration supplies, time, and space within the students. Thirdly I am extremely glad that Kaplan college offers a 9 month program in which we learn hands-on training, financial aid, and an externship placed in a chosen or preferred medical clinic and eventually graduating and earning an associate's degree. This helps those of us who are looking for a fast and reliable way to start our futures and open opportunities for ourselves. .
