Cincinnati State Technical & Community College Reviews

It was one of the best decisions I made to obtain my Associate degree. The faculty were extremely helpful in guiding me through the course selection process. As a continuing education student, I enjoyed the size of the campus and classroom.
The two years went by quickly. It was time well spent to prepare me for all future endeavors. My Associates in Business allowed me to work at some of the top fortune 500 companies such as The Coca Cola Company, Federal Express, and Genuine Parts Company.
Especially if you compare the tuition prices at a University to a Community college is a lot cheaper. A community college is the most cost-effective solution in securing strong job security in the workforce. After two-years, you have a degree to add to your resume that you can transfer to a University. The best part is you will be a Junior at the University to obtain your Bachelor's with half the cost and time behind you. For me, Cincinnati State was a win, win, and the only way to go!

As a continuing education student, I loved the flexibility of taking online courses. As a wife/mother attending school, it was great to be able to research on my own time from the comfort of my home during odd hours of the day and night.
Having an opportunity to interact with classmates on projects and the Instructor via email, chat, and video calls during a convenient time for me was the icing on the cake!
Also, you do not have to be a genius or super organized to succeed in taking online courses. The instructors are just a click away via chat or email. The best part is no classroom judgment on whether your questions were dumb to ask in a typical classroom setting. You can ease into the course syllabus, follow along, and focus on the content in a safe environment to ask all the questions your heart desires.
Therefore, keep in mind that online courses provide flexibility to our otherwise hectic schedules. Your regular study time may be at an odd time; that is how you succeed!
I love this school. I have been to community college before where they just treat you like a number and class sizes are huge. Here at CState, the staff seems to genuinely care and try to support you as long as you ask for it. Class sizes are very small compared to other colleges and as a bonus the food and coffee here is amazing and prepared by our culinary students. You definitely get a great experience as long as you put in the work and stay involved in the school community. It offers many clubs and opportunities to volunteer in the community, as well as many student programs to help students in need. For example, there is the "Career Closet" where students are able to go and find a suitable work outfit free of charge, as well as our student pantry where we are able to go once a month if we need food. There are always fairs or events going on too, which makes for some fun time in between classes! I'm glad I decided to go back to school!
