When I first began my construction degree, I thought that being the only female in the majority of my classes might be a bit of a struggle. I was proved wrong. I was accepted, and treated as one of the group. I still had to prove myself, but when I did, I was taken in and accepted easily.

Experience is good. Sometimes you get a 'dud' professor, but I suppose you'll have those in any institution..

Internet access in the dorms is quite slow... mainly because of the amount of people who use it for online gaming access. The computer labs are readily available, as well as computers in the library. Easy to have your own computer and have access in your dorm room, but depending on the day, its almost better to go to a lab or the library for the quicker internet...

Frequently available, easy access, you just have to reach out, and they will help you.. I think that the 'facilities fee' is a bit outrageous, but as I've found out, there's nothing you can really do about it... Gym is a little small, but not bad. Overall, campus is comfortable. Good setting.

I don't live on campus but they do have a great library

I think the school was great It was an easy transition and the instructors were great as well. They were more than willing to help me with things I wasn't understanding

The campus has many different resources. They have a multipurpose space that is normally used for conferences and intramural sports. They have a student center, and athletic facilities that are really nice.

I choose B because of how the teachers are, and how the students are respected by the teachers. For the most part, the teachers know what they are doing, and attempt to help students in whatever way possible. For the minority, the teachers make no effort, are usually late to class, and don't care if you pass or fail.

I have not yet been to vtc for school but from my experience with them so far has been great. IT was easy for me to transfer credits and all my questions have been answered in detail and in a timely manner.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The tuition is great at VTC. The price is not bad for what you get. There are also great chances to get financial aid. Trio being a great place to go for scholarships if you qualify.
College Junior 2013-02-23T23:21:38Z
There is not much in the way of student interaction. The grading is fair though and the overall classes online are good.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The course fees for my program are a little high but VTC has good professors to help make it worth the $.

We have a nice library open every day, there are tv's in the student center and the snake bar is off of the gym and pool.

The computer labs are 24/7 lots of printing spots. wireless access and get a little hard sometimes with so many trying to get on with a cord it is not problem.
College Junior 2013-01-22T18:07:49Z
We have a but that will bring you to class from campus if the class is off campus. They try hard to get the students out of their rooms with game nights, comity shows and much more.

All but one of my credits transferred from my old college so that was great. Also the teachers and others are very helpful. only problem is limited amount of different courses.

The career services department is the reason that this college has the 90%+ placement rate in this economy. The students have a good feeling when they come here that they will have a job when they graduate. The connections that the career services department has is all over the country. As long as the student doesn't object to moving somewhere, they will have a job.

For the most part, Online courses are offered with a program such as Adobe Connect where it is an actual classroom. Some teachers are not up to date with this technology, and don't take advantage of it. Those who don't take advantage of it have a boring class that ends up being a hassle in the end. Students lose interest after a while and forget to check the website for assignments and tests.

Printing on campus is easy. There is supposed to be a certain amount of money we are allowed per semester of printing, but I have never been faced with anything saying I couldn't print or that my money is getting low, so I'm not exactly sure how that works. There is really no need for a personal computer. There are so many computer labs and available times (depending on your schedule) that almost all work can be done on campus. The network is almost always up and running, though many students complain it has failed them. I work on the network from home with my own laptop and have never had a problem. Wireless is available even in the parking lot of the campus!

The SHAPE Center on campus has plenty of athletic equipment and space, though I have never used it. Being a commuter student, I don't get to spend a lot of time on campus, but when I am there I feel very welcome. The library is a place that I go to work as it is quiet and has tables big enough to work in groups. In the summer, the main area has picnic tables with umbrellas and chairs which made an excellent place to work outside. The buildings all have lounge areas, which I take advantage of due to my lack of dorm. Working on a sofa is much better than working in the back seat of my car! The only complaint I have is the lack of outlets. I have a laptop that has a 4 hour battery, and mainly the only outlets I can find are in the bathrooms!

The Randolph Campus is very small, which definitely sets it apart from other colleges. Everyone seems to know everyone. Faces are familiar, and people are very friendly and helpful. There is a wide range of students from different states, and there is also the VAST program for high school seniors. As part of the VAST program myself, I can say that it is a wonderful opportunity to get a head start on college (essentially going a year early, earning both high school credits to graduate and college credits working toward a degree). Being a VAST student, I don't get treated any differently, and people wouldn't know I was one unless I tell them. I think that is a very unique program that really sets Vermont Tech apart from other schools.

The wireless access is slow when many are using ind many play online games on it. It is enough for web browsing and email reading but try to download a program like Eclipse and it will never finish. Everyone on campus has an amount of printing money that they have, which is a large allowance. You save this quota if you print double-sided or just in black and white. I recommend that you get a laptop with Windows, even though there is always a computer to use on campus. If you can't afford a laptop, the TRIO office here has laptops to use for the year.

As a Computer Engineering major, I take a mix of programming and electrical classes. It's interesting to see how each applies to the other. The workload for all the classes is a lot. If one assignment is not handed in, then your grade for the class goes sharply down, as there are only an average of one big assignment per week. Beware: Windows 7 is the only operating system here, which is a good and bad thing. As I have no experience with other electronics labs, I would say that what we have here is average. There is a job fair at the main campus in the spring and there are many technology companies here in Vermont, so you will have a really good chance of getting a job or internship while you are here or when you graduate.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
