Chippewa Valley Technical College Reviews
CVTC is a wonderful college, with teachers who honestly care about seeing you succeed. There's a lot of opportunities (clubs, work-study jobs, student government positions) to get involved and plenty of resources for if you end up needing help on schoolwork. There's lots of benefits for the students there (health benefits, bus passes, food pantry options, etc). Unfortunately, there's not many art classes or classes that allow for creativity, but the classes and programs are still really interesting and fun.
CVTC is a great place to get an education that will open many doors for you. I have completed two degrees at CVTC and am very fortunate to have found a career before I graduated and that I still love. I would recommend CVTC to anyone, young or old!
The Paralegal Studies field is demanding. When entering into this firld, it is extremely important to understand that studying the law is time consuming and if you don't plan on spending most of your freetime studying, this field is not for you. The workload starts out relatively small, as the program is designed to ensure you understand the basics to law. Once the basics are covered, the workload increases substantially, as it is designed to match a typical day at a law office. The curriculum is laid out by the American Bar Association. The curriculum is designed to cover everything you will need to know to be a successful paralegal. The facilities are laid out so that all the paralegal courses are held in one building. This building also includes a fairly large legal library that was kept up to date until 2012. The legal library from 2012 and forward is available to students through the internet. This is designed this way to ensure students can both find case study and laws through physical books, the old style, and online, the new style. At the end of the program, anot internship is required of all students to graduate. The professors are very accommodatiNguyen in helping you find a good fitting law office for you, and in doing so, hope to see the law office hire you upon finishing your internship. The success in job placement has been outstanding and promising!
