Student & Graduate Reviews (52)
Come to class prepared, if you have any questions go directly to the professor as soon as possible. Go to the professor's office hour(s), they like to know that you care enough to make an effort to seek help/bounce ideas off of them. Stay on your professor's good side, they can write you recommendation letters and if they remember you as a good student they will write you a recommendation that will help you tremendously. Find a good internship/co-op! Ask your professor's in your major classes where they recommend you go for an internship.
It's a fun and diverse college experience. You can really pick what you want to get involved in and there are lots of different communities (athletics, honors, Greek life, arts, etc.)
Beautiful campus, wonderful school, great experience.
The IT degree program I went into was rather light on theoretical knowledge that would help in the long term; it focused mostly on short-term practical skills.
I loved my degree program and the university as a whole. UC has many students attend, yet, our campus is very condensed so you still get that home-like feeling of knowing the people you pass by even though there are so many students. I absolutely loved my program because the civil engineers were all very friendly. We were more like family than classmates and helped each other through school. It was a great experience. But don't get me wrong, you do have to work very very hard for your degree in engineering at UC. The first year is basically the testing period. We were given a lot of work and responsibility, but if you are motivated and determined, you will get by fine. You have to work hard, but you'll definitely enjoy the ride at UC.
Overall, extremely organized program that was straight forward with high expectation from instructors. Surprisingly, I learned not only about criminal justice, but how to become a much better writer. This program is all writing and that comes with preparation and the willingness to learn. The program requires experience in the field instead of a GRE. Students need to submit a resume in order to get accepted. It is a wonderful online experience.
My degree allowed me to pursue a career in city planning. In addition to our classroom studies, we were required to take four quarter of internships (paid or unpaid) to help gain experience in our field of study prior to graduating. This added one year to our studies so the undergraduate program was five years, not four. I believe the added internship experience gave me an edge competing against others for job interviews when I was a senior. i also felt it helped me find practical solutions in class projects which often dealt with problem solving in the real community situations. Internships exposed me to jobs in my field and I was confident when I graduated that city planning was what I wanted to do.
I loved my college experience and most of my classes and professors were perfect. It was not without stress though, because I went full time and I am a full time single mom. At times it was difficult to keep up my grades and my home life at the same time.
I like my degree in Addictions, but I would also like a degree in Social Work and Women's Studies.
Really think about what career you would like. It is really important to like what you do. It is also a good idea to find a career that will always be in demand to protect your job security.
Great, I did what I cared about, but also had experience in my field prior to my unrelated degree that allowed me to succeed after graduation.
Just get a degree. I was so limited before I finished, and wish I would have gotten a bachelors degree in anything much earlier.
The school was okay. I should have followed my gut (which told me a degree in criminal justice was a waste of time). I feel like I was mislead by college and financial aid personnel. They painted a picture of plentiful jobs with high salaries. In reality I couldn't get an interview in the criminal justice field and ended up working as a bank teller and then at an insurance company. Thinking about the debt makes me sick to my stomach.
I would only go to college if a degree was necessary to get a license or registration (ie teaching, medical professional). Anything else is a waste of money and time. I could have worked full-time instead of going to college and would have been promoted faster and not had the debt.
