Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science & Technology Reviews
CPI is a small, vocational school serving adults learners and rural high school students in the area. It's nestled among rolling hills in a bedroom community near the college town of State College, Pa. As a result, public transportation can run in excess of two hours to and from this isolated campus. Controlled entry -- albeit expected of a private college -- can seem excessive if visiting for the first time.
I love that all staff is understanding and address any type of questions, concerns in a professional, timely manner. The financial aid office is very knowledgeable wonderful in assisting the most efficient way personally for each individual.
At CPI, the staff at the school are incredibly helpful in assisting you in finding a job, giving great recommendations, and if you want to continue on further, help with transferring. CPI has a reputation of having an amazing nursing program, and gets recommendations for their graduated nursing students.
