J.F. Drake State Technical College Reviews
I love attending J.F. Drake it's one of the best 2 year schools in the Huntsville area! If you are looking for a job, career, or simply where the IT services is they will be there for you.
My Experience at Drake State has been one to remember, kind of don't want it to end. I love this school and all it's staff. It's has giving me hope and the will to believe I can do anything. The first year was rocky for me because I hadn't been in school in a while but besides that little stump in the road it had been an amazing journey. I wouldn't trade this experience for nothing in the world. It has taught me to be driven no matter what the background had to say or how they say you can't you must will to can. The staff had been wonderful and the professors even more Wonderful. This school and all it's amenities has been a fantastic journey and I hope they continue to be even more great after I'm gone, because this truly has been a wonderful experience.
I have lived in the local area since 2011 and I went to Calhoun because that was deemed the better school than Drake. I hated every minute of it and ended up transferring to Drake not because that was the only option because the staff, faculty, and professors genuinely love doing their job. They love helping their students strive for success and will do anything in their power to help students succeed.
