Easy Schedule – The classes are set up to flow along with the program. The program is expected to last about 2 years, and only specific classes are offered each semester within the program. As long as you don't miss anything offered with in the semester, it flows along pretty smooth.

Interesting and Challenging Curriculum – So far the program has kept me interested in continuing my education. There are only a few core ed courses necessary for the diploma program, most of the classes are specifically related to the program.

I understand that this is a small technical college, but sometimes I feel the professors are not as experienced as they should be. There have been problems arise where some of the hands on projects were done incorrectly even with the teacher assistance. And another professor for a core ed course was extremely unapproachable for questions from students.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Diploma Program – I am currently paying out of state tuition to take the course program I am enrolled in, and was told that with the Diploma program I was ineligable for financial aid. The program is almost 2 years long, I do not believe this is right.

Poor Campus Activities – I know a lot of schools around me have work out rooms available and parks, andy school is just buildings. It's kind of upsetting. But you have to take the good with the bad!

Content With My Choice – Ive never been big into school like some students but everyone's different, we all have one thing in common, that's knowing that we have to go to school to have a good life. I'm satisfied with my choice and it was my best option for my program!

The front offices like financial aid and registerations they are not very polite it feels like, when I have more the one question. Other then that I like my school and staff!

Intro to Psychology – This was my favorite online course because the instructor had everyting available on the home page and explained clearly how everything was to be done. She had easy-to-follow power point notes with sound, sort of like a lecture, all the links to practice quizzes and interesting articles. I very much enjoyed this online class. Plenty of time was alloted for assignments, quizzes, and exams, and she graded very fairly. It was great studying and taking exams in my own time. I was able to stay with my toddler while attending school! That was the best part for me.

No Technical Issues So Far – I have had no problems so far with the using any of the labs, network, or printers. You can use the computer lab anytime, you can pay to print in the library if needed. If you work it right, you can print in the classrooms (they always keep the printers stocked with paper) for free.

Schedule Flexibility – This school offers a wide variety of options for scheduling class times, whether you need morning, evening, online, or weekend classes.

My school offers free tutoring in the student center on almost any subject needed. They are very good about helping out students who need a little extra help.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Its Good. Make sure you do your financial early. Because if not, you may have to pay out of pocket.

Could Be Better – They don't have enough openings in programs and the teachers act like they only want to help certain people. sigh..

The employees that work with financial aid, admissions, and the advisers are very unprofessional. They never answer their phone and when they do they do so unprofessionally. They aren't up to date with their services. They need help.

Just Taking Core Classes. I will be only using ATC to get core classes out of the way.
Recent Alumnus 2011-11-18T23:06:27Z
Diverse in All Ways Possible! The thing about ATC I love the most would have to be the student/faculty diversity. I have become acquainted with people of every ethnicity, age, religion, and sexuality. Being around a mix of people from every background makes for quite a melting pot.

Content, but Time for Change. I've attended ATC since Fall '09, and I'v enjoyed my time there. I would prefer more accessible parking (and more of it), but overall, my experience has been good. I will be transferring to Chattahoochee Tech in the upcoming spring semester, due to a recent move.

Everthing is good at this college, the only areas where students might receive more help is when they need help in the way of help with their class work or when they want to register for certain classes. Other than this I cannot fault this college.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I believe I have achieved more from this college than I ever did going to any other school or college I attended. I believe this college is very helpful to all its students, whilst thanks to this college the way I learn now and my understanding of how I learn is better than ever. I have nothing other than praise for this college.

Adequate Resources – Overall, ATC is aesthetically pleasing. The resources are just above what's required. There IS NO cafeteria! The library is all business but adequately supplied. Labs are well supplied and maintained. Buildings and equipment are kept up-to-date, albeit the computer labs are getting some age. The student center is fairly robust. There are some activities and clubs, but no fitness facilities. The parking is a mess by 10 a.m. while parking spots are set aside (ie: sitting empty) for green vehicles and registered car poolers. The newest building boasts about it's green-ness on a dozen placards plastered all over it, but none of them say LEED-certified.

Hated the Online Environment – Although it's great on gas mileage, that's the only thing going for the online classes at ATC. I'd expected online lectures, active discussion forums, and more freedom to press forward when I wasn't working and pull back when I was. Instead, I got a blue screen with lotsa words. There were no lectures, just the book. The "quizzes" had due dates that were inconvenient for me (Wed & Fri after working as a house painter all day). I hated the loss of knowing the teachers' values and beliefs, their personal emphases. I took the first psych class online successfully, but the second one was impossible for me to complete while working. As shy as I am, I even hated the lack of interaction with other students. I remember another nursing student at another school talking about posting to forums during psych online, but we didn't even do that.

Quite a Roller Coaster! I spent two years in prep classes BEFORE being accepted into an ASSOCIATE degree nursing program; if I'd known that, I would have applied to a school that offered a bachelors. Those classes were either jokingly easy or offensively hard. All of the science classes have been extremely heavy for five-hour courses; I studied forty hours per week to make high A's in Anatomy & Physiology I & II-- (Fameree is nowhere near as good as he thinks he is, and I'd try Nichols if I had the choice to make over) -- Lifespan Development (Stennett was excellent), and Microbiology (Chambers was excellent).
My adviser, Diane Hodson, is amazingly friendly. The cashiers are patient and helpful. On the other hand, admissions were amazingly unhelpful, as were Financial Aid. I'm actually thinking of having a powwow with the president about the lackluster financial aid staff. I asked if they had any BOOKS that listed scholarship opportunities, and they looked at me as if I had three heads. By the time I found several nursing scholarships on my own, they were closed.

my over all experience at ATC has been very good. I enjoy attending ATC, the curriculum that they offer is very good, and I believe that they will prepare me accurately for the future. ATC makes it easy to attend college financially. They really care about the students. I would definitely choose ATC again for another degree.

I haven't really seen any Alumni interaction on campus. When I graduate from Athens Tech I hope to be able to give back.
College Senior 2011-05-17T18:43:08Z
The student body is very diverse and a lot of the students are very focused. A lot of the programs require very high grade point averages so students take classes very seriously. It's fun to see lots of the same people in your classes and at the Student Center.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
