Overall

80% of Cincinnati States students drop out and don't graduate. 0% have graduated from Sonography General Imaging in the past 10 years. White males account for less than 10% of graduates from their medical programs (this does not reflect enrollment or local populations). On time graduation is less than 15%. These are all public statistics that you can verify independently. I attended Cincinnati State for two years starting in 2007. At first I enjoyed the school and the teachers were great. The first odd thing that happened was when I first enrolled I did not sign up for student loans but they gave them to me anyway. I was still thinking about whether or not I should get it, so I just decided to take it and not say anything. I didn't know what major to go into and they advertised that the medical field was great and sonography. Another strange red flag- they had brochures advertising what looked to be unrealistic pay for some of the majors. They claim that Surgical Tech people start out at about $20 an hour and that Sonographers make about $80,000 a year. I called up hospitols and they said Surgical Teches start at $12-$13 an hour and Sonographers don't make that much. The other majors may not have this problem, but there are four programs in the medical department: Sonography General Imaging, Sonography Cardio vascualr, Nursing and Surgical Tech. Each head of the program is a female. The Sonography General Imaging head is an extreme sexist and racist hating white men. The other program heads are less extreme but go along with this and demonstrate a lot of bias. They also play "favorites" generally picking who they want in their classes and who they don't and denying people an education. I really don't care if they exclude me from their class. The problem here is that Cincinnati State commits fraud when they encourage me to take a major and when I'm 95% finished won't let me take the final classes I need. This maxes out my financial aid and means I have to drop out of college. Then the school just uses the excuse "well our students are all lower class ghetto people anyway. They are just too dumb for an education and here to get the financial aid check" Reality check- there are plenty of community colleges across the nation and they don't have 80% drop out rates. If the drop out rate is that high students and staff should start pointing fingers at the college itself. The first real problem was when I signed up for an EKG class that I thought would be interesting. It wasn't part of my major and I guess was normally part of the nursing program. When I showed up the first day of class the teacher got real hostile towards me and said I wasn't one of "her" students. She said the next meeting would be in the room where they did their nursing thing last week. I asked her where that was and she said second floor of the medical building. Well for one, the student hand book says a teacher can't move class rooms without a valid reason, but ok. It was not on the second floor. After wondering around for a long time I found it on the third. She moved the class again after that and once again would not tell me where it was. I got an F in the class because I could never find it. All of "her" students happened to be female. Then when I had finished all my classes I went to sign up online for my clinicals. I had met all the pre-reqs. It would not let me sign up online. When I went to the office to ask about this they said I just needed to meet with the program head first and she would let me sign up for them. I met with her and she wouldn't. There was a long drawn out battle where she made every excuse asking me to drop out of college, to quit, to change majors, I'm not smart enough, I'm not good enough etc. but people with lower gpas were whisked right through the program. When I pressed her many times she finally said she doesn't like men and does not think they are suited for the medical field. That's when I realized 100% of her class every year is female. Well she promised me if I switch to Cardio vascular sonography that I could take my final classes. The head of that program was with her and agreed. I did and when I was ready to attend class, they wouldn't let me in the class. When I tried resolving this they wanted secret meetings behind closed doors where they made promises that they never kept. I was told if I switch to Surgical tech 100% for sure I could take it. I talked to the surgical tech lady and she wrote my name down as number 6 on a list out of 13 and said 100% for sure I could start in the fall. I waited several months for fall to come around. I was signed up on the computer. Everything seemed good. When I showed up for the first day of class I was told I couldn't do the program. I said "My name is on the list right?" She said "What list? We don't have a list, that is just a rumor started by students". They don't care about their students and commit fraud against them and discriminate. I have complained to the school multiple times about this over the years and it continues today and its 2015. I asked them to do something about this and just quit doing it and threatened lawsuits, protests, contact the FBI etc. They don't seem scared at all. Seems like they have gotten away with this a lot and pretty confident about it. The Department of Justice and FBI also seems to ignore my complaints about civil rights violations.

Academics

Most classes are small, most teachers are good, the work load is pretty easy except in a few of the harder classes. There was one professor who was teaching math. It was an Indian lady who could not pronounce English very well and kept giving us the wrong answers and apparently couldn't do the math she was teaching. The academic advisors/program heads in the medical field were extremely racist/sexist against white males and lots of lies and gaming but other than that most teachers were good.

Campus Facilities & Safety

Nice labs. Fun campus. The school wastes a lot of money on throwing parties for students then says tuition needs to go up and that they don't have funds to pay teachers, which is similar to almost every community college I have seen. They have a nice weight room and swimming pool.

Overall

OVER ALL THE SCHOOL IS A VERY GOOD SCHOOL. I LIKE THE MOST HOW THE STUDENTS REALLY LOVED COMIN AND WAS ABLE TO GET ALONG WITH OTHER CLASS MATES AND I LOVE THE FACT THAT WE HAD SOMEWHERE TO GO TO STUDY IF WE DIDNT WANT TO GO HOME WE WAS STILL ABLE TO STAY AT SCHOOL AND WORK THERE. ALL I CAN GIVE AS A TIP IS: " WE ONLY LIVE ONCE... WORK HARD... STUDY HARD... BECAUSE EDUCATION IS YOUR LIFE AND WITHOUT EDUCATION WE HAVE NO LIFE"

Academics

I LOVE THAT ALL THE CLASSES ARE SMALL AND YOU CAN REALLY LEARN SOMETHING WITHOUT BEING STRESSED OUT ABOUT WHAT YOU DIDNT CATCH. "MOST" OF THE TEACHERS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT YOU AND YOUR EDUCATION AND TO ME THAT IS A BIG PLUS!!!!

Campus Facilities & Safety

THE CAMPUS HAS CAME A LONG WAY =) NOW THAT IT HAS BEEN REMODELED IT IS BETTER AND NICER THE COMPUTER LABS I FEEL IS A GREAT THING TO HAVE BECUASE IF NEED TO BE YOU ARE ABLE TO RESERCH ANYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SCHOOL YOUR MAJOR OR ETC. THE PARKING COULD BE A LITTLE BETTER BUT AS THE TIME COMES AND GOES I KNOW IT WILL GET BETTER BUT A LITTLE WALK FROM YOUR CAR OR FROM THE BUS STOP WILL FREE YOUR MIND AND GET YOU PREPARED FOR YOUR CLASS WORK.

I have visited this school in person and on line and I must say that the coarse that Iam interested in, which is Associates Of Science. Cincinnati State have a 2 year degree program that I can't wait to start and from that point they will even transfer my credits to a mortuary college where I plan to attend for a remaing 2 years for a bachelors degree. So, I will say to anybody that read this if u want to go further with your education then please by all means give your self and Cincinnati State a chance to accomplish that goal. U wont be disappointed. I love and encourage everybody get up and do u. I know and u know u still have a lot more in u, let this be a beginning of a beginning. God Bless The World!

Academics

I will be taking up Associates Of Science, starting in the spring of 2012. The size of the classes, I truly don't know at this time. But, i'm quite sure everything would be ok because I looked on line at the classes and subects I will be taking and I feel real good because it wont be overwhelming. Cause, thats 99% of the people today we get afraid of too much but those classes are just right so, don't worry, just breath, relax, stay focused and everything will be alright. Don't give up!

Campus Facilities & Safety

It is a beautiful campus, convenient to computer labs as well as parking, friendly staff and security safety. I even must say that the students that attend there are helpful too. So, anyone would feel very comfortable attending this college and if not the staff would go out they way to make sure your needs are met.

Overall

I visited as a DON and had students come into my facility and work with my staff. They liked their program and their instructors. I was impressed with the school and its faculty when I met them prior to the students arriving. The school is known locally for its ability to turn out people who are well trained in their field and able to find emplotment in their field.

Academics

As I stated the classes are liked by the students and the results are what I am looking for-training that will result in being well trained and able to find employment in a field related to healthcare. The workload seems to be manageable, and I would be able to work and do my courses primarily online. The healthcare field has become increasing difficult to find a position in in this area. Due in part to recent changes in long term care regulations, and to two take overs of major long term care providers which left many people who were already in a tight market now in more difficult positions than ever. This is why I need to set mysely apart with further training.

Campus Facilities & Safety

The campus was well lit I had no difficulty findmy way to a meeting in the evening, nor did I feel ill at ease due to security. The campus is easily acessible, with adequate parking available (as well as handicapped parking I am aware of this because I have a handicapped sticker but did not have to use it). The students that I have been in contact with felt that it was well staffed with a large number of computers to work with.

Overall

I worked an Cincinnati State Technical and Community College and i think it's a fantastic school, along with the teachers. What i liked most was the people and student because everybody that you pass in the hallway smiles and is so nice to you. My tips would be to stay focused on your work and ask for help if you're stuck on something because the teachers and students are there to help you.

Campus Facilities & Safety

The campus is beautiful, they do an amazing job with the landscaping, they even have a few awards for how pretty their flowers are.
