Carrington College - Mesa Reviews
My experiences on being enrolled with Carrington College-Mesa are amazing by far. I truly admire how things are neatly and professionally organized by the staff members and advisors. The beginning we were doing online classes due to COVID-19, but we managed to get out work and lectures in by having Microsoft Meetings. What I like about Carrington College-Mesa is that they care about each students education and the program that they are in. By making sure we understand and by providing us with hands on experiences at campus, so we can provide a successful performance withing the medical field to our future patients. They also treat us equally within our programs by making sure we all receive the education we all deserve and are hoping to accomplish as well. The thing I would like to see change though would be the tuition because it's pretty high and pricey. Although, they are providing a great education for individuals seeking a medical degree withing the medical field.
My experiences with online classes at Carrington College-Mesa were pretty great. When I first enrolled with Carrington we started off with online classes. This was all due to COVID-19, but it was for our own safety and health. Although, online wasn't too bad even for my first time having online classes. I'm doing my third term online as we speak, therefore, we do our lab portions on campus so we can get credit for our hands on experiences as well with caution though. Our advisors have been doing their best on providing the best online teaching as possible. Even when we have internet trouble at some moments, they make sure they find ways to help assist and communicate with each of us to make sure we turn in our work on time, understand our lectures, and having patience with our learning criteria. This online portion was new to each of us, but we managed it by learning how to use the internet for education.
Carrington is by far the whole package when dealing with going back to school and having to juggle work and actually being an adult. From my perspective it was definitely a seemingly tough transition but with the helpful and truly caring staff and workable schedule it turned out to be amazingly easier than I anticipated. Just finished first term with a 4.0. Being 43 I would say that isn’t to shabby.
