"I've been in the field a long time but went through the Vet Tech program to be able to get the license. This program is pretty much basics and trash. I was raised with the mindset of giving and receiving respect yet this program demands that you give respect when it's not received. If you have a job (which most adults need to pay for schooling, bills, and life), they will not respect your time! If you think you'll ever get out of class on time, especially clinical practice, think again; they even tell you not to schedule work afterwards (like people have that luxury) and it's all due to their incredible disorganization! If a veterinary hospital ever ran the way they do, they'd be out of business in no time. I will say that every teacher in the program is incredibly kind but if I wasn't so far into the program, I would've just done the crappy Penn foster program because it's on the same level of wasting your time. I mean, doing scavenger hunts and escape rooms when you're an adult is just a pathetic waste of time. If you think you get to leave class and concentrate on other things in life, think again because they have you do so many stupid assignments online too and bombard you ridiculously long powerpoints, articles, videos, links, ect., that I can say 90% will never be used once you finish school and work in the field."

"Asheville Buncombe Technical School is a great starter school to knock out undergratuate credit hours, the courses are offered on a flexible schedule to those who are working through school. Dr. Rock Dodridge in the psychology department is an amazing inspiring teacher. I found other classes to not be as challenging though."

"Hello, I am a Digital Media Technology student at AB-Tech in Asheville, NC. AB-Tech is mainly for people who want to put in the time and work to see themselves succeed further. This school has great resources with some great instructors. There are a abundunt amount of scholarships to apply for. It's a community college that will guide you to the right path and help you to see what you want whenever you feel like your lost. The classes are flexible and affordable. The oppurtunitties here that I have endured have changed the way I look at life. There are hardworking and driven people here. The digital media program, the program I am enrolled in, is one of those programs that makes you appreciate constructive critisism and think differently about the world around you. We learn how to animate, create dynamic websites, program, produce video's, design, and work with audio. All these things are done through using creative concepts using Adobe software. This program may take a while to complete and same goes for the projects you will face. In the end it can be worth it and you can never rush a good education. If you are interested in this program I have a few tips that will help you such as take notes as always, dont be afraid to take risks, go to the teacher for help, and find your niche by trying each area of the degree. Thank you for reading and have a great day."
