Everglades University is an amazing campus with a multitude of career paths to choose from. There are tons of possibilities that one can get involved in at Everglades University through clubs, community involvement, or sports. As an landsman, I am very glad that I chose this particular school because our energy department is one of the best in the United States, and the chances of finding a job upon graduation is quite high. Best college in Southern Florida
I graduated from Everglades U in 2009 after transferring 2 years earlier from another University where I was taking my generals. I had been working for 15 years prior to enrolling because I wanted an education to back up my experience. It took me 24 straight months to complete the program online. I married, had a child and moved across the country all within this 24-month period. I also ran a successful business unit for the largest rehab company in the world. I absolutely loved this program and how they worked around my schedule. It was by far the toughest 4-year period I have experienced; I wanted to quit several times but didnt. I didnt want nor could I have attended the traditional college program. After 15 years of construction and working life I didnt want the distraction of a campus life, I just wanted to focus on my education. I remember the quick pace with the classes, 1-month change, 1-month change. It reminded me of changes on a construction project; you had to be able to adjust, figure it out and complete the work. The tests were timed and reviewed thoroughly. The Curriculum was tough and challenging and after 15 years in the construction industry my education put everything into big picture perspective. My college education and degree were what I earned and what I put into it. I wanted to be learning. I desired something more and Everglades helped me obtain it. The Professors were professional and always available. The conference calls with classmates and Professors are exactly like round table discussions today. I will always be thankful for this program and others like it that cater to the working professional. I do read about the people that were not satisfied with their online learning. Its definitely not for everyone. I had zero issues with financial aid and getting enrolled or communicating with my Professors and counselors.
The reviews on here must be from staff because this school is a complete sham and the debt that I took out for a degree I cant use has ruined my financial life. Run as far as you can from this place and find a school that you can actually use your degree with.
I completed my MBA while working full time and raising a family. Everglades University provided a convenient format to fit my busy schedule and life. The one class at a time worked well for me. It was not easy but the staff and faculty were there every step of the way to support me! I am proud to be an EU alumni! Great University! It also helped my career adavancement.
The staff at the Tampa campus is awesome! They go above and beyond to help you succeed. I knew I wanted to go into alternative medicine for a career and they did everything possible to make sure I stuck with it and got to where I wanted to be. The teachers were knowledge and all had experience in the actual field they were teaching. Couldn't recommend than more!!!
My years in Everglades University were challenging but had a great experience. If it was for my financial aid advisor, Gary Phillipee, I would not have made through the four years of college. His last expression to me was to go for my masters so that my kids will achieve higher education then me. Im going to talk that statement into consideration. Thank you Mr. Gary for putting up with me.
The Alternative Medicine degree at Everglades University was amazing! My Bachelors degree has enabled me to advance my career and also has personally improved my health and wellness. The faculty members were amazing and the overall experience with the administration was excellent. Every faculty member was an expert in their area and also had real life experience they brought into the courses which made the classes very interesting! In addition the classmates I met along the way have become great friends and peers in my professional career. I would highly recommend this University and this degree to anyone interested in alternative medicine and health and wellness. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience!
I have had a great experience with this school. My classes were online and fast paced. I started a new class every month, but that did not make the classes any less effective. It made me have to work harder to make sure that i understood the subject. I appreciate the instructors for all the help throughout my time here.
The admissions staff and administration were NOT forthcoming and honest regarding expectations of employment following graduation. Please be aware that, if you are pursuing this degree, you WILL need further education (not available at Everglades) in order to secure a career in any part of this field. The best you could hope for with this degree alone is possibly an office assistant, or retail work in a vitamin store. Not what I wanted to waste my $45k on. Went laughably into debt on these student loans for a useless piece of paper, and got no placement assistance following graduation. Now have a career in a completely unrelated field, which I could have gotten into with a high school diploma alone. The instructors I had were knowledgeable, but again, they provided either 1) knowledge that I could have obtained from Wikipedia or 2) conspiracy theories posed as fact! It was completely insane how much of this degree program was unfounded quackery posed as science. Better yet, following graduation, we were asked to sign legal documentation promising that we would pursue legal action against the school to reimburse our tuition. That sounds like something an honest and legitimate university would do, right? Please seek another university. If you are looking to enter the alternative medicine field, get a specialty degree elsewhere so you can enter the workforce immediately. This will just be a waste of your time and money.
Let me just say that Everglades saved my life! I was super stressed working and going to traditional college, trying to handle four or five different courses a semester. I learn so much better with the setup offered by Everglades, and I am so grateful I found it. The faculty is awesome and genuinely concerned for the students. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get in with someone. So convenient, and I have learned some amazing, cutting edge stuff.
