Former Student - Last Attended 1988

Overall Rating

It was great. All the faculty were polite and informitive. It has been some time ago when I attended the school, but from my past experiencethere it was fine. I did good at Basic Draftin. I hadn't been in a educational institution priior to this school, unless you count my High School experience. Anyways...The college was qiete most of the timew when I was attending classes there and that made for a much more comfortable vist while attending. I went back the nest year and was takeing classes ion saterdays. I took Auto-Cad with no computer knowledge at the time and I was doing ok untill my job iI had at the time and personal family obl;igations began to interfere with my atendance so I had to withdraw from the school, which to me was sad to say the least. I was just beginig to get my selfd rolling with my academical quest. As it had been some time since I had attended any school with High School being my last source of education.

I thought it was a tranquil quiet campus. It was sad to see that the building had not been updated and the landscaping wasn't maintained very well. I can't comment on the classes as I was only there to pick up my transcripts.
