I have attended this college for only two semesters and I've never had the issues I've experienced here happen to me anywhere else. They are a complete joke. If you live at home and go here (which is the majority) and are under a certain age (which is 23) and you have to apply for a loan, you can pretty much guarantee that you won't get the full amount you wanted. Each semester this has happened to me. And if you need to call the institution's offices for any reason they are no help either. They give you the run around and then if you complain long enough that's when they tell you "because you live at home and are under the age of 23 you are still considered a dependent and you can't get any more then what you're getting." I've attended two other universities and never had this problem at either one. Just because you live at home does not mean that you don't have bills to pay on top of tuition, books, and gas. I just don't understand why this is only an issue here. For that reason this second semester will be the last I ever take here at Stark State College and I will never recommend this school to anyone!

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

Stark State College professors prepared me for my career to the best of their ability. Not only are the professors helpful from the classroom to the scheduling of classes, but the staff even help you put your best foot forward by being available to answer questions and even tracking down answers for you when you need them. If you are having difficulties with studying, the professors can give you tips or tricks to help make the most of your learning environment and that continue on into your career. I would strongly recommend Stark State to those who are serious about furthering their education to excel in a career.

I think more emphasis needs to be put on actual skills for degrees. Critical thinking abilities are essential but employers want people that can actually do something when they get out of school

I have truly loved the experience of going to school at Stark State College. First, the tuition is a great deal, especially when comparing to a 4-year college. Yet, in spite of being 2-4 times less expensive, the labs were terrific, and the credits transferred directly with any state school.

A great option for prerequisites for advanced degrees. Second, the professors I have had have all been terrific, and there are typically many options to choose from as far as teachers and styles. Lastly, there were a lot of different resources that are available to help a student succeed and find a good path for their career. In summary, when it comes to useful degrees, high quality education, and overall experience, I think Stark State gives the best bang for the buck around!
