Eduardo V. - 6/15/2017
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2019
"I like Everglades because it is small and there aren't as many distractions as in a larger school. Because many of the students are older, we are all serious about our study. I also like that the teachers get to know us so if we have a problem, we know they are there to help. There is a lot of personal interactions here and I enjoy on campus learning more than learning online."

"This university has very flexible programs for full time working adults. The faculty and administrators are willing to help students obtain the financial aid and other resources they need in order to be successful. I look forward to continuing my education at Everglades University."

"I'm currently attending and so far the experience has been great. Everglades University has a terrific faculty and their input in addition to the course material provides a complete educational program. The exposure to current topics and Industry innovations prepares students for a successful career. The university also has great research resources and easy access."

"Great school and great faculty. Enjoyed learning and growing with other students that shared my same interests and experiences. Online classes were challenging and engaging. Learning at your own pace while having to work 50+ Hours per week was a plus. Instructors presented real world experience and feedback."

"I work 45-50 hour weeks, have a two year old, and married; I work for an Engineering firm, which requires me to travel. During my time at EU the staff, deans, and teachers have all assisted me through the entire way making it possible for me to maintain 4.0 CGPA. Since, the cost I pay is a large investment, I take ever opportunity to gain as much as I can from the textbooks and the classes. It has served me greatly at work. I believe your experience will depend on your motivation to succeed and get the most out of your college experience. I've previously attended FSU, and the information I have retained at EU exceeds that of FSU. Even when the cost got to be too much when health insurance costs doubled, EU eliminated nearly $2,000 in debt and has helped me obtain grants. EU also provided me a $1,000 scholarship, which I was able to apply for last year. Overall, the university wants you to succeed. For me the cost was significantly less than any other university which offered a BS Construction Management in the online format."

"Although Construction Management is one of EU's best Programs, I am very dissatisfied with my education here. I felt that my courses were bogus being incredibly ill material and that my professors have been careless to my questions of concern that I presented to them time after time. I don't feel appreciated as a student due to the lack of constructive criticism to the least on any of the work. It's a horrible school."

Save yourself money & time - 6/24/2016
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"This School is a joke. If you have ever been to a traditional junior college or University you will be able to see that this is truly a waste of time. School is suppose to be exciting and challenging in the learning curve but the admissions process and financial aid were more stressful than the actual program in general. And on top of all of it, It is very expensive to go hear. Do not waste your time there are many online programs this is not a top rated school. I am a current student so this is a accurate review not just a post from an upset student. In ten years of going to College never had to work so hard to get direct answers related to what I am doing. Which makes no sense being in another state trying to attend a online university. With financial aid, VA benefits ect, watch out!!!! This money is disbursed quite a bit differently than most colleges. So, don't expect to collect a good portion of financial aid that you are approved for. It all goes to school then you wait for the VA to disbursed their payments. Very different. The few staff members I have spoken with excluding one have been professional and courteous. But overall I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. Trust me."

Disappointed Construction Manager - 1/29/2016
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2013
"Very disappointed with this school. Yes, the courses are fast paced. Yes, the instructors were very helpful. However, that's about where the benefits end. This school was horrible at helping me with financial aid. I was attempting to use my GI Bill and they had no one that had any clue about how it should be incorporated to pay for my courses. Instead, they pushed me into federal aid without explanation and didn't care how I paid for my courses, as long as I signed the paper. I take partial responsibility for the mess, but I have dealt with other colleges since and they are much more helpful in explaining to you the financial requirements and not pushing you into anything you don't understand. However, with this degree I am walking away with a 25K student loan that my GI Bill should have covered, but now can't. Also, I feel that the pace of the courses isn't conducive to truly learning a subject. I don't feel that the structure of the construction management program adequately prepared me. There wasn't a good capstone that focused on practical application of the information learned. It was just another longer paper about a topic in construction, not necessarily related to managing a construction project. I would not recommend this degree to anyone that doesn't have previous construction experience or someone that is not willing to start at the bottom rungs in this career field."

"I transferred from Florida State University to Everglades University to take advantage of their online Construction Management degree program. The courses are fast paced, and it takes a person willing to put in some real work, but the reward has been great already. I've completed six of their courses for my major, and each professor has been great! I work fulltime, have a growing family, and life can be really difficult at times; however, each person at EU has been helpful. I receive emails and phone calls from the deans, advisors, professors, that check up on how I am do, ask if they can help, and are very helpful when I contact them. As for the financial aid department, they were extremely helpful and assisted me in getting the most out of my dollar. If your a person that doesn't want to go to school for 3 hours a week per class, 2-3 days a week, at a major university, and just wants to get their education and move forward, EU is great! I never had one professor, administration, or dean, reach out to me while at FSU to offer assistance or just check up on how I am doing, and give encouragement. This is a great school for those who want to work hard. I believe if you want the easy college experience you better start at a community college, because even FSU was a breeze compared to EU; however, EU is amazing, if you'll keep up. I put the most into every class because this degree is part of my future and I use the information already obtained at EU to be successful at work, and has led to great advancement in the field of construction. I highly recommend this school."
