I liked many things about this college;most of the teachers care and are excellent teachers. The campus is nice and the people that work there are nice and seem to take pride in what they do(campus security, the librarians, etc). I enjoyed the majority of my classes, and felt that I learned a lot and for the most part, got a good return on my investment.
This school is VERY expensive. It is also infuriating that when I started there, they had certain criteria in place for the nursing program point system...which they changed right before I applied, making it even more difficult to get into this program.
Some of the courses required are ridiculous. I also feel that some of the classes and teachers are not up to snuff, and that the teachers do not care at all. Which is why the rating system is so great! At the end of your course, you rate the professor and the course.
I do feel that even though I received a degree, that I will not be able to get a job with it.

Goodwin is a great college for everyone. Everyone is very welcoming and willing to help. Goodwin offers many career fairs for students, extracurricular activities and academic help. Best experience ever!
HI,
I went to a community college once before, and when I reached out for help, I was dead ended multiple times, and eventually forced to quit. Goodwin College, and it's outstanding staff make it ridiculously easy for absolutely anybody, including those with learning disabilities, and all walks of life, to be able to learn, retain whats being learned and ENJOY being a student. I missed being a 4.0 student by ONE exam this past semester (my own fault of course), but in the meanwhile, before Goodwin College, all paths were unclear as far as my capabilities went. I dropped out of High School THREE TIMES before I found an outstanding group to help me push through to get my diploma, and now I have another OUTSTANDING STAFF standing beside me once more. THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERY WAKING MOMENT GIVEN TO THE MEN AND WOMEN THAT COME TO YOU WITH PROBLEMS AND LEAVE WITH A DEGREE A FRESH START, HOPE AND A NEW OUTLOOK ON LIFE. God bless you all. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
