Degree: Fire Science/Fire-fighting
Graduation Year: 2016

I started this journey late in my life, but found that the administration staff for the fire science was excellent as long as you visit in person. The options for a degree are so diverse that e-mails will not make your experience enjoyable. The Fire Science Department was very helpful and worked with me to achieve my degree in a short time frame. They work directly with the State Fire College, which makes things much easier.

Degree: Elementary Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 2008

St. Petersburg College, College of Education was a sought after educational program as it was one of the first junior colleges to become accredited for their Bachelors of Science in Education program in Tarpon Springs, Florida. The rigorous program was tough. There were 22 students that started off in my cohort and 12 stayed the course. Their academic program allowed for me to graduate and be fully competent in knowledge of content, discipline, ethics, assessment and pedagogy. It allowed me to flourish as an educator which ultimately led to being a leader. In addition, I wanted to give back to their program and took professional development in clinical education. This allowed for me to mentor teachers and have teachers engaged in their practicum with my class for three years. I wanted to give back to the college that taught me the disciplines of being an educator.

Degree: Veterinary Technician
Graduation Year: 2015

The online program for both the AS and BAS degree is structured but still provides a lot of flexibility. The Professors all work in the field in addition to teaching so they have relevant information that teaches you more than just "book knowledge". In my opinion this is vital when applying for a job after graduation. The Dean is very involved in the program and is available for questions. There are also really cool study abroad opportunities to help animals in other countries, like Sea Turtles in Costa Rica.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

While I attended this college, I enjoyed my professors and classes, but I had issues with administration. The professors were amazing and always willing to help. The administration was difficult to deal with. There were long waits to meet with advisers and financial aid staff. Once in with an administrator, they had an attitude. Also, when I chose my degree path, I was on track to finish it until they switched the required courses & didn't inform the students. Once I found out, they made excuses & told me to change my degree. I was an online only student & they changed a required course to a coures that was at the school & at a campus far from where I lived.

Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2004

I can sum up my entire College experience with one word, Unprepared! As a single parent, you must identify all barriers that may rise up and prohibit attendance. When I began my first Semester of college I started out strong and determined, at least that's how I felt. I established childcare and I also qualified to get financial assistance, Thank you FASFA! But unfortunately it was a short lived dream. After passing my first Semester, I found myself without childcare, which made it possible to attend college. I tried asking family members and friends but it seemed as though everyone else had to work. It made it worse that I had just gotten a student loan for 6,000. Always have a Plan B to ensure success!

Graduation Year: 2014

I began my studies at Saint Petersburg College in 2007 while I was still a junior in high school. I received my Associates Degree and my Bachelors in Business Administration-Finance. SPC's program fully equipped me with the necessary knowledge and tools to further and better my career as an accountant. Their program is very diversified and touches on all aspects of business. The staff (including professors and guidance counselors) were extremely attentive and supportive to my individual needs as a student. Their mentoring and guidance led me to Graduate with Honors and obtain a membership at Golden Key International Honor Society. Scholasticly and professionally I could not have asked for more in a school, every dollar spent on my studies have more than paid off financial and personally.
