The reason why I chose to go to loyalist college was because the area made me feel at home. I came to visit one time and I just knew I wanted to stay here; not forever, but for the time being. I applied to both ottawa and Belleville in accounting and child studies. In the end I just drew a card from the hat and next thing I knew I was attending loyalist. Best decision.
The course curriculum is definitely a handful but the people there really do want you to succeed. Just be mindful that from first year to second year is a big jump. It gets hard fast.
This college is local, it is only about a 20-minute drive from where I live and the program being done was at the library 5 minutes from my house. Another main reason for selecting this college is because it was recommended for me to attend here to be able to go forward with my summer job. Nonetheless, this college was a great choice.
I believe that the course curriculum was perfect! I learned everything I needed in the short training sessions provided.
Had some great reviews about this college on google and I read that its one of the best college for biotechnology field and I always wanted to bein a chemical feild. I was approved by all the colleges I applied to and it was around 4. I was offered a scholarship too in st Clair college. However, the course only starts in august and I wanted to get in the upcoming January intake.
The Faculty student ration is quite satisfying. And I have found the teaching methods are up to date and on track. The faculties have always tried their best to reach students and make them understand. Another great thing is that all of them are well qualified and almost everyone holds a Ph.D. with ample work experience.
The college is close to home, as I am a majour home body. It was also intriguing and I heard many good things about the school. It was an all over just more convenient choice for me, and so far I am enjoying myself. I am excited to see where this college takes me.
I enjoy it and covers all the basics to get you ready for university. In my opinion, this program is more beneficial than highschool. Highschool isn't teaching you about mortgages, finances, and future careers. This program does.
I decided to go to a loyalist because it's close to home, and it has great staff and programs. It's a great campus and always has a lot of things going on around you. It's always clean and welcoming.
I believe that the course curriculum is pretty good. I don't think about it's too much but it's also challenging enough as to where I feel I'm using my full potential.
