Overall Rating

I think Ivy Tech is a great community college. It is brand new and very clean. Most students are very responsible with a similar mission, to excel in what every area of study they are in. Because classes are small it is a great way to get individual questions answered and one on one help from the teacher. I had an awesome math teacher who was willing to work with each student to help the students understand.


Overall Rating

I like the flexibility of the school in general. I like that there are many different career choices and ways to get a degree and still be able to work and keep a job.
