My college is very interesting. I love the view on campus, and there is an immense amount of diversity among the lot of us. Our teachers actually take time to speak with us individually, if necessary whenever we need the help. I especially love this aspect. When it comes to tuition, I never expected furthering my education to be so cost efficient, as much as it is fun. The only thing(s) that I could recommend changing would be the way in which classes are organized. I feel like all the classes pertaining to a certain major and courses leading towards the taking of said courses should all be available in the same area or vicinity.
Review Stark State College
The program that I'm majoring in is Medical Laboratory Technology, where we are trained to become lab techs; we help doctors and nurses diagnose a patient's condition by running specific lab tests on samples and specimens of body fluids and tissues (such as blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid, etc.). The curriculum can be very challenging; the head of our program said that it would not be good idea to be working while taking the classes because the course demands a lot of attention and studying outside the classroom. We do have labs attached with each class; we have learned how to withdraw a couple of tubes of blood from a patient, type the blood (ABO and Rh), analysis on urine specimens (physical, chemical and microscopic examination), and more. Our instructors put a lot of effort and time into teaching us through class lecture and through lab; they have made deals with hospitals for donated specimens and supplies that we work with in the lab for better practice and preparation for when we go out into the workforce. In the very last semester of the program, each of us are assigned to a directed practice (different hospitals and medical facilities) for internship. We work under the supervision of the certified lab techs and get to apply our skills that we learned in the field; this lasts for about 3-4 months. I've heard that some of those places have hired those students upon graduation and helped to pay for their tuition if they decide to transfer their credits to a 4 year college/university to continue their education for a Bachelor's degree.
I'm actually not at the stage for transferring my credits yet; I still have a year left before graduating for an Associate's. I have heard both from a representative of Stark State and by my advisor that Stark State' credits can be transferred and accepted by many other colleges and universities that they have agreements with. My advisor said that by this coming fall semester, my classmates and I will have the opportunity to sit down and talk to representatives of other schools for those of us who want to continue our education for a Bachelor's degree after internship and graduation. I have also heard that the professor's of our program will sign an agreement with us, giving them permission to use them as a reference for potential employers. I'll have more information as the year progresses.
