No Comment – I am not familiar with this area of the college, so I don't feel that I can rate it appropriately.
Most Are Fresh Out of High School, or 40+ Years Old. From my experience, I've found that most students in my classes are either fresh out of high school, or much older people that have come back for a career change or just to fill up some free time. The problem with the recent high school graduates is that they don't want to be at a community college, and most of them don't know what they want as a career yet. They don't take the classes seriously and make group work complete hell. The problem with the older students is that they haven't been in school for 20 years or so, and they are starting back at ground zero. They literally don't know anything and take up all of class time asking simple and common sense questions. It's difficult sometimes for students who try very hard and WANT to learn, to get what they're paying for out of the class.
What's a Major Anyway? I have switched majors so many times, it's impossible for me to grade just one, so I will give my opinion on them all. The general education classes seem to be a joke. None of the students take them seriously, and the teachers seem to possess the same attitude. I enjoyed my business classes very much. All my teachers were very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in helping the students. The science classes made me feel like I was studying under a caste system. The teachers treated you like you were smart and deserved to be there, or like you were a complete hassle and an idiot. Overall, I think that if you take your education seriously, study and actually try to do well, you can learn valuable information in every class and with every instructor. It's up to the student to get the most out of their college experience.
