Shawnee State University Reviews
Review Shawnee State University
I really love Shawnee State university because of how small the classes are. As someone who came from a small town, small settings are what I am comfortable with. The class sizes at Shawnee are relatively the same as they were in my High School. Also, I love how much they involve the commuters. I commute from my home town and the staff at Shawnee are constantly making me feel involved and providing opportunities and evens for both on campus students and commuters. I have had some trouble with the Financial Aid department however but nothing that would make me not recommend it to anyone! It's a great college and great atmosphere!
Every year Shawnee offers a day for the students to meet and greet with local companies for a mock interview! My friends who have went through this process really appreciated it because it have them a heads up as to what will be asked during the real deal. Also, it allowed these companies to be introduced to possible candidates for a position. This is great because it may get your foot in the door to a future place of work. Also, there is a lady on campus who continually sends emails to students regarding places around Shawnee that have open positions. This really helps students out when it comes to looking for job placement after college. I feel that Shawnee does the best they can to ty and offer its students opportunities to get their name out there. They also try their best to offer students professors that are willing to equipt students with the most valuable knowledge.
Honestly, I really enjoy the class sizes! When I was taking the gen-Ed courses my freshman year the largest class size I sat amongst was roughly 40 people. It was rather big to me coming from a small high school class. But, I quickly realized that was rather big for the typical Shawnee class size as well. The rest of my classes were between 10-20 people, and 20 is pushing it. This may seem boring to some, but if you are seeking one-on-one time with a professor it is a blessing! Plus, you become friends with your peers very quickly. I have only had one professor that I didn't not care throughout the past two years. She was just a rough grader, but the rest were very knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding to our needs. The classes are mostly lecture based, but what I find as something very special is the amount of field work Shawnee requires when it comes to your major. Having time spent in the field (my major being Education) truly helps you decide what you want to do with your life. Overall, I find Shawnee as a very attractive college.
