Helena College - University of Montana Reviews
I attend Helena College and strongly recommend this school to anyone wanting to earn their associates . HC lets you obtain your bachelor's at HC through the University of Montana also! During your Jr and Senior year, HC live streams the class you are in at the University. You feel as if you are sitting in that class. The staff at HC want you to succeed. You don't own a laptop to type your thesis paper? You can "check out" a laptop for free from the IT dept for a week. What about printing a 25-page paper? The library gives every student free printing. Need markers, scissors, rulers, staplers, or even just a pencil for class? The student center will lend you the materials you need and return them at the end of the day! Classrooms have 20ish students, making the learning environment less stressful and a one-on-one learning experience. Professors are nice people but aren't lenient. A's are not given. They are earned at HC. Everyone is held to the same standards of a 4-year University.
The Helena College has been a great college to attend to the last two and a half years. I may still continue my education there, in hopes to get into their nursing program, but may transfer for Carroll College. The overall professors are great; however, their nursing program has been very difficult to get into. Thus, Helena Colleges nursing program requires a standardized test (TEAS Test) in order to apply for the program. Students have to score required test scores for their LPN and RN program. In my opinion I don’t think it should be a requirement. It puts a huge amount of stress on students. A test will not determine what type of nurse you will be. They need to consider looking at students personalities and who we are as individuals more, rather than focusing on a test to determine who will be accepted in.
Classes are small and professors have been great. Campus buildings are ok, older but maintained good. Student centers are behind the times and there are no gym facilities here. Mediocre salad and coffee bar at one of the campuses but not at the other. Dorms available across town at Carroll College.
