"My undergraduate work was at the College of Wooster and going to a small liberal arts school was the best decision I ever made. It's about so much more than the classwork. College should not be viewed as a technical school it should be viewed as an experience and I think Wooster provided that. My graduate work was more clinically based but it was very helpful and I am very proud of the degree I will be receiving and the work I put in to get there. My college education is invaluable and I am so happy I chose what I did."

"I believe my graduate program is very good because hospitals are in need of Radiology Technicians. This program is very competitive which means I will have to work really hard my freshman year. They only take about 34 people in the program and that's not a lot at all. That would be the only downfall of my graduate program."

"I am currently in the Counseling Supervision and Education- Marriage and Family Therapy Track Ph.D. program at the University of Akron. I am currently seeing clients in our University clinic that has provided me with a rich experience that has allowed me to grow as a clinician as well as a person. I am also involved in multiple research opportunities with new faculty, that has allowed me to develop pertinent skills that will prepare me for a career in academia. In recent years, the program has not been widely recognized for a research based program; however, new faculty has challenged us to compete with other institutions at national conferences. The program also offers a dual license which makes us more marketable in the job market."

"Some pros of the graduate program are that the instructors really care about their students and wanting to help them succeed. The class sizes are smaller so it is easier to form a relationship with your peers and instructors and everyone is working together to help each other succeed. A con is that the workload can be excessive but ultimately it is to help benefit the students in comprehending what they are learning and how they will be able to apply it in their profession."

"The pros of this program are very clear: The professors and academic advisors are second to none. They truly care about helping students succeed in whatever they do. Very little time is spent on material that is irrelevant to the majority of the population in the class. The only negative that I will associate with this program is the availability of classes to register for. I understand that there are only so many students in the program and it's impossible to offer something that works for everyone, but as a commuter student I have sometimes struggled to get into the classes that I need to take to graduate."

"The surrounding area around campus has been growing increasingly violent within the past five years. This is disturbing to me, especially considering that some of the robberies and shootings have begun to spill onto campus. I love my University and wish to see it continue to thrive without the violence."
