"The University of Toledo is a good school for post-graduate degrees. The staff is very attentive and will guide you through the process of both coursework, as well as your practicum and internship. It does an adequate job preparing you for a real-world counseling position."

"I'd rate UT very poorly. The school tends to act as if commuters don't exist, despite being a majority. Next to no career advising, courses taught by TAs, very low ROI. No name recognition, facilities falling apart (I know a leaking roof since 2000)."

"Choosing to attend the University of Toledo has been one of the best decisions of my life. I have made friends I know that I will keep for a lifetime, as well as giving me a wonderful education. I am still enrolled in the pharmacy program, but even with the rigorous class schedule we have I would still recommend it. The professors and advisers openly care about the students and make an effort to remember everyone's name, even in lecture halls of 100 students. There are endless review session and supplemental instruction classes available for anything you can imagine, and the tutors for those also make an effort to get to know you and help you succeed. Aside from academics, there are tons of ways to get involved on campus. The Greek life at UT is very big, and there are clubs for everything. If you aren't interested in a social sorority or fraternity, there are also professional fraternities open to anyone in that profession. These are great for networking and learning more about your career pathway even before you graduate. They provide you with opportunities to further yourself with your major and help you get ahead in your career. Between academic and social opportunities, I would say the University of Toledo can help you achieve all of your college goals. I would definitely recommend applying and coming for a tour!"

"The University of Toledo was definitely not my first option. While it is only still the first semester of freshman year, I am already planning to transfer because I do not like the school. Many of the professors seem lazy, because most are not teachers and only do research. I feel that they do not care bout the students' success. The campus itself is decent, but Toledo is not a very safe area which is another downside of attending this school. I would highly recommend to schedule a tour/visit before planning to attend here. Based off of my experience, I would not recommend this school to anyone."

"I loved my school. It was a great atmosphere and quality education. There was always something to do on campus: sporting events, sponsored activities, etc. The tuition is affordable in comparison to other schools of the same caliber. The one thing I didn't like about the school was the parking, or lack there of. If you plan on commuting, arrive 20-30 minutes early because it may take that long to find a spot."

"I highly recommend The University of Toledo! Being that this was my first away from home experience, the campus provided a safe environment with great access to all the resources I needed. When I entered as a freshman, cars were not allowed. Despite the foreseen downfall of that, the city of Toledo has a wonderful surrounding community that offers short walks to nearby hot spots. The education program is superb and provided me with great knowledge. Once I entered the professional program of Early Childhood Education, the class sizes were much smaller and provided me with great ratios where I was able to get one on one attention and teaching. Also, the small class sizes allowed me to build great rapport with both the other students as well as the professors."

"The College of Education was a very well rounded program. I attended a variety of classes for elementary education: reading, math, social studies, science, music, art, PE, just to name a few. I have drawn on the knowledge gained over 16 years ago."

"Every professor is talented in his or her field. There is many options for the direction of your study, whether you want to work in materials, finite element molding, tissue engineering ect. there is a professor that could help you down that path. Sometimes the paperwork can move slow, but with a little patience, this is a great program."

"There is ZERO job placement at the University of Toledo. They just want your tuition. I now have over 70,000 in school loans and it took me 4 years to find a job in an unrelated field where I can afford my loan payments. If there is anything I would do different I would learn a trade. COLLEGE IS FOR SUCKERS!"

"I would not recommend this college to anyone not wiling to really suffer in order to attain your desired degree. The administrative staff frequently appears totally incompetent and the financial aid staffing could pass for the performers in a three ring circus based on their actual knowledge of how to help students."

"The University of Toledo's OT program is a doctoral program that really prepares you for entering your career. There are 20 people per class and the faculty will get to know you very well; they are always willing to talk to you and they truly want you to succeed. There is only one extra semester compared to master's programs and it is an independent study where you will become very familiar with one specific area of practice. Every student completes a research project before they graduate as well. Overall it is a program built to help students become great entry-level practitioners and there is a lot of support and great opportunities in this program."

"The criminal justice program provided with knowledge I would have never received. Toledo is a pipeline for sex trafficking and not only did the program highlight this issue but encouraged us to assist. I originally joined the program to act as a springboard for law school but I definitely gained more. I currently work to assist ex offenders in job placement. The workload can be a burdensome at times but the professors make the experience worth while."

"I chose Toledo because of its affordability and the diversity of its student population. I have already met several faculty members that have reached out to me with their concerns about my future career, and seem to sincerely care. At least for my program, there have been several individuals who are established in the field that have either visited the university, speaking its praises, or have made themselves available to me for interview. I had not anticipated the networking involvements, and I am happily surprised. I do believe that the Toledo area is due for some rejuvenation - the hardworking people of the town deserve to feel safer, happier, and more culturally enriched. I hope I can one day participate helping with this process."
