Clover Park Technical College Reviews
Overall, Clover Park is a good school. Like anything, there are bad sides and good sides. Most of the teachers seem genuinely engaged with their students, and love working to improve lives. The campus is clean, well lit, patrolled by security, lots of parking, has on site daycare for parents, and lots of student involvement events happening every week. Really, the only negative I've personally dealt with is the Financial Aid office. You have to be able to navigate it mostly on your own, unless you get one of the few helpful people in that department. You have to ask the questions, and make the appointments. You will not be notified if you are missing paperwork, so you have to watch the portal like a hawk, every day.
At the South Hill Campus it seems like we are less important then the main campus and we are the last to get stuff and upgrades. Instructors over here are very experienced though and its a laid back campus. Only Vending machines on campus
Really friendly environment. The teachers actually care and know what they are teaching. They have a great student life as far as getting everyone together for meet and greats.
Out of all the colleges I have attended I really like clover park over all of them for so many reasons, one being the staff is really committed to the success of each student. Secondly most of the instructors are either in college themselves or were once students there which really give them and edge and making them able to relate to us as students. Thirdly they have free tutoring centers with current students and instructors which makes its really nice to get that extra help you need but cant afford to get help outside of school.
its a very large campus, i wouldn't change anything important i do wish it was in a better neighborhood but most of the riff raff stays off campus
Clover Park is a friendly and supportive environment that offers hands-on programs that teach real skills to students so they are ready and qualified to enter the workforce and embark on rewarding careers. It's affordable and has many helpful student services.
Clover Park Technical College is a great school. They offer a number of speciality classes and keep students involved in the community.

just hassles with financial aid
professors were great, registration was easy.
all my credits transferred over from another college
My class size is about 15 students.
Workload is massive but I will have a life long career afterwards.
I cannot think of anything bad to say about this college.
The workload can put some stress on you if you don't keep up like your supposed to. But can be easily balanced.
There is a very diverse amount of students to meet and talk to.
My classes are from 9 in the morning til about some where in the afternoon. Its flexible enough for me to balance my school work and stuff I have to do at home.
The career center is a huge help. Some students coming into the school didn't even know how to make a resume before they went there. Even some of the teachers can give you information on job openings in your subject.
The schools courses are hands on so your able to understand what your doing a little better. the class sizes are reasonable and there are plenty of different courses to take depending on what your interest is.
There's a lot going into the school when it comes to help. There are job opportunities at the school and financial aid and counseling. All the staff are pretty helpful but it can get kind of busy in the financial aid and counseling building.
