Not sure if it’s just the program or the instructors, but unless you’re living in a fantasy land where life doesn’t happen, this is NOT the college for you. You could be on your death bed and the instructors still don’t care. No extensions, no exceptions. They lack compassion and just the common sense that adults with children, jobs, etc are going to have the occasional wrench thrown into life. Perhaps for the straight out of high school student with no responsibilities, this approach would work. I DO NOT recommend if you have a job, have children, have a family, EVER get sick, etc. The one positive is that I do love to learn and I like the material.
I love my college!! All the professors are super helpful and enthusiastic teachers. They really want you to achieve your goals, and it shows. Plus, if you are still struggling after extra teacher help, the college offers free tutoring services for all students. It is a wonderful environment to be in, and I love participating in various student activities. Just last week, we had a salsa cook-off! So after you finish all your studying there are plenty of opportunities to have fun and make new friends.
Well, I think that during my short stay at CCC everything was very interesting and incredible, you could say that everything was very wholesome and nice.
My time at Central Community College has been all online for the most part. I am very thankful that my school allows me to do so. I work a lot outside of school, so it is nice I can do my school on my own time.
Centra Community College has been amazing for me. Not only do they provide a welcoming, rich learning environment, they provide a home for your learning. I have never had such a smooth experience like I have at CCC. I would certainly recommend CCC as your choice of college.
I enjoyed my time at Central Community College. The Hastings Campus is very nice. Hastings campus has the best AG department of Central Community College. One thing I would like to see is better academic transfer counselors. My counselor was not very good and I had to reach out to my transfer school myself and figure out what a good game plan is. I am happy I went to CCC because I am debt free!
They are amazing at making every student feel seen. They also hold a lot of activities to try and help the students make more friends and gain connections. The teachers strive to make their students succeed and find multiple different teaching styles to fit with each student.
This trade school offers educational opportunities to high school students preparing for college. Every class that I have taken has given me dual credit. The professors are phenomenal and are understanding. If you are a high school junior you should consider taking a course through this school!
Something that I liked about CCC was that they went all out for me to get help for me when I need it. They have a lot of resources that help you to succeed.
Professors often would not assign due dates, so it was easy to get late papers since they wouldn't email a due date either. Then they don't let you make up the assignments for something that is not your fault. Horrible communication, teachers often don't answer emails or any attempt you make to reach out.
Teachers report students often for stuff that they do not need to be reported for. Teachers won't assign due dates, won't tell you when it's due through emails, and then won't let you make up the assignments. Many teachers will not email you back if you have a question, even if you email them a few days before the assignment is due, they won't email you back until after the due date. Overall, horrible experience with the professors. Would not recommend this college at all, they professors make it way more stressful than college already is, not worth it.
I give it two stars because at the time I went to this school, between 2006 and 2008, it was very affordable and I was able to cover the cost with the scholarship money and some savings I had at the time. There was also a really kind instructor at the time that helped me feel at ease at this school. Otherwise it was really negative. At the time I was a young, first generation college student it was really hard for me to navigate their system, registering for classes, turning in assignments, and the financial aid. The staff were often unfriendly, making it awkward to seek any help. Their transfer system at the time was a joke as I had to spend extra courses and semesters catching up to earn a four year degree after transferring. I never once felt valued at this school and some of my experiences there were legitimately traumatizing. After transferring schools, I was able to find a university that was caring and showed they valued their students. I look back at CCC as a disappointment.
My online experience was difficult to navigate. The instructors were mostly good at responding to questions I had, which was helpful. Because I went to this school from 2006-2008, my experiences with their online system are outdated, but I remember half of my work figuring out their system and the other half the actual academics. Overall I don't feel much of a connection to the education I earned online or in person.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, remote learning had to implemented fast. All teachers were prepared to go online. Before spring break, all teachers informed their classes on how they were going to teach and how the classes were going to be affected. We utilize Moodle and we will be transitioning to Canvas in the fall. All classes are organized at the beginning of the semester on a set timeline. We are sent emails by the instructors before the semester begins to introduce us to the class. Assignments, projects, and tests have due dates so we know ahead of time when they are due. IP classes have set times to meet on WebEx. Instructors teach classes as they would in the classroom. Online classes do require more focus and responsibility. I would suggest taking a certain number each semester. However, there will be classes that are only offered online. Overall the classes online are quite easy. Always ask questions, check due dates, and read the material to prepare for tests.
If I had any questions they were able to answer them and if they were not they found someone who could. The staff has been extremely nice to me. Classes are not hard and the instructors care about you getting a quality education.
I have not had any online classes so far, but my classmates with the same major that do. All have said its not bad
Small enough that you get a lot of attention if you need help. Big enough to get advanced training in you degree.
