Parkland College Reviews
Review Parkland College
I loved being a Kinesiology major! The classes were engaging for the most part and I really enjoyed my professors. Unfortunately, being a Kinesiology major wasn't enough to get me where I want to be, therefore, I will be attending Illinois State University in the Fall as an Athletic Training major and Parkland College as a Massage Therapy major. ISU will fulfill my dream of becoming an Athletic Trainer and getting my Associates degree in massage therapy will make me more marketable in the career.
Since my time at Parkland College many opportunities have came my way. Parkland isn't a necessary big college but it's teacher to student ratio is very low so that the professors can get to everyone when they need the help. The professors don't just talk for hours and then leave the room, they will engage you and they truly want you to succeed. Big school small classes, everyone is relatively friendly and will help you out as long as you help them. I came to this school with low expectations and I was just blown away by what I have walked into.
I really enjoy going to Parkland College. I like that I have gotten to know some professors and staff very well. I went through the Personal Fitness Training program, which is unique because you actually get the experience of training clients (under the supervision of a certified personal trainer) during your last semester in the program. Many school will just prepare you for the national exam to become certified, but I found this experience to be invaluable. I would choose this school again if I could do it all over because the knowledge I gained and relationships I built there were priceless. I'm still continuing my education there and am excited for the experiences to come.
