My experience with Lincoln tech has been real friendly. My recruiter has been guiding me about the college really throughly and try’s pushing me to my best. She tries giving me all the resources I need to pass and even more. But the one thing I would like to change about the college is the dropout rate, students drop out to chase jobs and not finish their course. Overall the college is a wonderful place and if you love cars that’s a place you wanna be at.
I have yet to be thought by one of the wonderful professors their but thing I’ve heard means they will not disappoint me.
Yes, I took most every class online and the lack of hands-on, what this technical school should have been was horrible!
Some of the instructors (most actually) are phenomenal! Yet beware of what they tell you in the recruiting department and what the catalog says, make sure they are back to normal schedule or you will not be able to get the shop time/hands-on instruction they boast about.
Due to the pandemic a lot of the lectures and small assignments for classes are online and it has turned out very well. It was a bit of a change to get used to but the instructors make sure to help you understand the material before moving on and are more than happy to explain everything in detail to get a better grasp on the concepts.
Before attending Lincoln College of Technology, some workers of the financial aid office were considerate, friendly, and helpful when it came to my schooling as well as other necessities I needed to attend their school. When I first applied, one of the previous students that attended the school who is currently a Diesel Mechanic gave me hope once again in the technical field and recommended Lincoln College of Technology was a great place to attain the education I needed to move forward in life. The meal plan I received was great as well as the food that comes with it. Some of the staff could be a little nicer but they did their job in helping me complete my financial process to attend the school very well. After doing this I felt confident that I can find a job in the Technical and trade field with little to no stress while keeping a smile on my face every step of the way.
Everyone on campus is extremely nice and helpful. All of the professors want you to succeed and graduate their classes. All you have to do is ask for help and they will help you!
I'm very excited to begin my education at Lincoln's Nashville campus in January. I think the quality of my education will surpass any other opportunities that I have.
The campus grounds look ruff. The doorm rooms need overhaul. The food is excellent. Your roommate is on an opposite class schedule than you are so you don't feel as awkward sharing a room with stranger. The academic are alright I'm just more of a hands on person. The professors are grate even helping me outside of class on unrelated class items.
Living in the dorms was terrible!! DO NO LET THEM FOOL YOU IN STAYING THERE!! IT IS NOT SAFE AT ALL. When I attended someone got shot in the parking lot, and you do not see that advertised anywhere. I stayed in an NICE apartment a few minutes away in Hermitage. The woman that checked me in on my first day was named Dynasty and boy would I hate to have her as a wife. She lied about everything, and is very unorganized. I work in a shop now and learn more now that I have at Lincoln. Do not go here and waste you time or money on and expensive piece of paper.
You can feel the greediness everywhere you go. It cost 40,000$ this year and everything around the school seems to be getting worse as if none of the money is being put back into the school. They charge you 500$ for laptops with tablet processors that can barely open a web browser. Most of the teachers are just old techs that read word for word off of a powerpoint and the other students that don’t want to be here slow you down.
My experience with Nashville Auto Diesel College is limited right now. I will be attending this campus next week. I am looking forward to everything this college has to offer. The teachers had knowledge beyond expectations. They not only teach the classes they have worked on the field for many years prior to teaching. I find this very helpful not only are they the teacher but they also know the other side of automotive training. The dorms were not up to my expectations. The dorm I will be living in is very small. I will make the best of this college to further my career in the Automotive Field.
Things I like about NADC is the instructors and their willingness to help out. Also the friendliness of them and being able to talk to the them easily. Things I would like to see changes on is the renovation of the buildings.
You have a morning shift and a night shift. The morning shift is 6:40-1:20 and the night shift is 2:20-9:05. The school is 5 days a week. You have the weekends off. There are certain breaks you get from the school but not a lot since it's only 13 months. I have recently had a death in the family not long ago and the people in the education office have been here to help me with my days and get them excused.
Career services are always here for their graduate students. You could be graduated from a day all the way to a hundred years and if you need help finding a job they are going to be there for you. They have a facebook page for graduated students or currently enrolled students to friend with. They can talk to each other and stuff like that. You can always come back to the school and remember the good ole college days. If the students come here and put all their effort into this school and actually attend class and don't just skip school, they will find a job easily. If you miss for a death in the family or being seriously sick or something along those lines, you can atleast explain that to the company and they will have a better understanding of it.
The instructors I have had so far are all great teachers. They teach us what we need to know. It's pretty much like high school except better. No man left behind pretty much. If you have a question the teacher will answer it. If anyone needs help the teacher or a fellow class mate will help you. Courses are going good as well. The size of the class isn't huge or small.
This is a very well known school. It use to be known as NADC and is now known as Lincoln College of Technology. Getting a diploma from this school will help me get a job in a shop close to back home. I live eight hours away and this school will still help me get a job I want. The career service group will help me find a job even after I am graduated and have gone back home eight hours away. I have a friend back home that graduated from here, he didn't have a single problem finding a job with this diploma. He lives a pretty good life now. There are different companies that are willing to work with this school and hire students right after they graduate. We have two career fairs a year that brings in over 150 companies for students to talk to. Many companies will come to the school individually and give a presentation. After the presentation they will interview students. The admission represntatives are really great people. I work with them and they are great people.
