I believe that Parkland College is a wonderful community college that provides an affordable start to an individuals pursuit of a higher education. The campus in Champaign-Urbana is much larger than expected of a community college, and it offers a very wide variety of majors. I quite enjoy attending this college!
Parkland College is a very good community college for students. The staff is amazing, and the professors are very attentive to their students, and their students need. Their always available to help students with academic planning, and tutoring at all times. The college community is very clean, and neat. The classes are a nice size, it's not too many students at all. You're able to have one-on-one time with your professor, and ask as many questions in class if needed.
Since I started attending Parkland Community College in the fall. I didn't know what i was expecting of my first year. How the class would look like or if im going to like my professors. I have learned a lot about the school. The class sizes are really good its not very crowded and you have space to breath. All my professors were always available for any questions in class or outside of class. My FYE 101 professor had a very big impact on me. He talked about things I was interested to hear and I was able to use all those information and apply it somewhere else including my other classes. On my first essay which was a career paper I wrote about what I always wanted to be when I grow up or if any of those dreams changed. My professor he wrote some comments on my paper, which was helpful for me to start looking for internships at the hospital and get the feel in the medical field. Since I always wanted to be a nurse since I was little.
I think Parkland College is a good first step into the college life. It's a community college, which is great for getting gen-eds done and earning your associate degree due to it being cheaper than typical four year universities; although the tuition per credit hour does seem to go up almost every year. The classes are a nice size, neither too large nor small. They average around 20 students a class, which is the perfect amount in my opinion.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Parkland College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself in senior year, I would first advise myself to seriously think about and decide what I really want to do in my future. Many highschool students and college students live without setting their ultimate goals in their lives, and I was no exception. Praying with tears every weekends, I now finally have a goal and this is motivating me to challenge myself to achieve this goal. If I found this goal earlier, I could've motivate myself more and look for colleges that fit me the best, not those that have prestigious names, financial support, or friends. When seniors can set their goals earlier, the environment and experiences provided by the colleges would be the first characteritics that I would look for when I'm searching for the right college. Enthusiastic professors, life-like experiences, and vigorous club activities will cause more students to become more passionate and to learn more about achieving their goals. Since these students are more likely to have the students who have the same interest, I will be more motivated and become more enthusiastic with those who share the same dreams.
My classmates are very knowledgeable people who will do their best to learn the material.
The classes in Parkland are small sized, compared to large universities. Therefore, the students who seek for academical improvement with closely related care of teachers would benefit enormously due to this environment. There also are a lot of chances to speak up, due to the size of the classes. Also, I really loved Parkland's system of tutoring students for free; students who are outstanding at certain fields of studies are qualified to work at Parkland to tutor those who are having trouble in those fields, and it's really helping me out. The writing labs are also helpful.
My school has a reputation and a foundation built by providing great education and has high standard in graduating students from Parkland successfully, the teachers, the students, the classrooms are all praiseworthy.
I wish that I had known before I came to this school about extracurricular activities. I look forward to learning life-like experiences in community colleges. Whereas 4-year universities focus mainly on academics, there are a lot of stuents in community colleges that work and study at the same time, and those who aren't financially able to pay for those universities. Therefore, I believe that community colleges like Parkland should provide opportunities such as internships, job experience, job interviews, and etc. According to my one semester's experience at Parkland, there weren't enough information about those.
It is one huge building, which makes it kind of hard to navigate. Even though it can seem daunting to get around Parkland, the building is beautiful, with lots of new additions.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that there are not many clubs or groups for students to get involved with. In a students point of view, you really don't meet knew people or make friends, only when you are in class. Also, the other frustrating thing about my school is that the activities that take place you never here about until after they are over. Therefore, you can't even get invovled with the different assemblies or activities.
My school is best known for their high rate of success and the high rated professors in which, some are actually University of Illinois professors. Also, my shcool had a great tutoring program which is know as the Academic for Success department. Students can get a job as a tutor in this department and in addition get their homework done at the same time. Lastly, my school is known for their cost or tuition for being reasonable for a middle class student.
My high school was in a small community where everyone knew eachother. It's nice to attend a bigger college where everyone is different and from different cultures. It's nice to socialize with people from different backgrounds and learn about their lifestyles.
Parkland is a great school and can offers students a top notch education and experience. Students get lots of one on one time with their instructors and have many other facutly and staff members to guide them through school. There are many resources avaialbe to the students to ensure their success and lots of places to study on campus.
