    CARROLL COLLEGE - THE GOOD, THE BEST

    Close to home, was small like I wanted. It also seemed to have a nice program for what I wanted to do. Student to teacher ratio was really what I wanted and not just looking at a screen during class. There was also a faith presence.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It was garbage. Only started to get better as the new hire came on. Other than that it was terrible. Teach you outdated things and don't go into more detail so you never get skilled in a certain particular topic.
