Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    The administration makes it near impossible for distance students to contact financial aid, there is no voice mail and only 2 people answer calls at one time. Email takes 2 weeks or more and when you do get a replay, sometimes its just dumb (like not being able to open a PDF document) and you have to start over.

    One thing that separates Chemeketa from a university is the rate of people most of the time being much older than you. So in some classes it may feel like you are the only one your age. But that doesn't mean there aren't people whom you wouldn't get along with.

    Chemeketa is a really open place, I walked on campus my first day and I was feeling really nervous and then I started to see people that I knew and I met some really funny and outgoing people and it took my nerves away. Chemeketa has a broad atmosphere and you just love to be around. There are so many places to just hang out between classes and the art gallary is a fun place to go as well.
