Amazing, Online, College Experience
BLOOMINGTON, MINNESOTA -- I graduated high school in 2005 where I was an AP and honor roll student. Of course, I went straight into college; however, my father came down with cancer and I moved back home after about a few years. After his fight, he ended up losing his battle; meanwhile, I lost my personal cheerleader. So, I didn't have the motivation to go back to school, and I joined the work force.
Despite not having a college education, I climbed the corporate ladder very quickly no matter where I worked. Finally, I started working for a company where I had the time to not only enjoy with my social life but extra time I knew I could use to go back to school. After speaking with several different colleges, Rasmussen College is the only, and I mean only one, college that did not harass me like I was trying to purchase a car. When I said I needed a few months to think about it, they didn't even contact me. I had told the same thing to another college, but I ended up in their automated dialer system.
Finally, I ended up speaking with an enrollment representative and getting enrolling as a student of Rasmussen College despite all the bad reviews that I read, which I am glad I did. Not only does their staff have industry experience in the courses they are teaching, they accept the fact their students may have industry experience as well, and welcome it. Some professors in my first years of college would completely disregard the students' experience; however, all of my professors have accepted I have experience beyond the classroom, and in some instances asked me to speak to the class about it. Granted, I have held back at times, because I know there is a learning process which needs to take place in order to get a good foundation.
In any case, I happened to see this website on Google and felt I needed to tell everyone about my great experience with Rasmussen College since there are so many bad reviews. In all honesty, I read the bad reviews, know the team at Rasmussen College, and can't help but think, why didn't you contact them?! I have missed assignments at times due to my company requiring I spend extra time on projects, which my professors have only asked that my supervisor notify them and have accepted my work without penalty.
If you're searching for an online experience to truly push your boundaries and make you a better professional in your field, I highly recommend Rasmussen.
