Police Quote: “When I was going through the field training class with my field training officer (a retired Navy Chief), he told me this that at first I didn’t understand but now rings true: He told me that when I got off duty and was living my personal life to not surround myself with only law enforcement friends. I took that advice and had friends with other careers outside law enforcement. That was 16 years ago and I believe that advice helps me stay focused and not get the ‘burned out’ feeling a lot of the officers/deputies get. Don’t get me wrong, I have great friends in law enforcement, but, sometimes you need to step away and get away from all the negativity we see on a daily basis.” -Sergeant Ted Roy

Student Review: “My college experience was atypical; most of my college experience took place in an online environment while I worked full time as a police officer. Prior to my online enrollment, I did attend a local ‘commuter’ state college for a short time (just after graduating high school) but I did less well there than I could have because I did not really want to be there at the time and took the experience less seriously than I should have. Later, after completing the Academy, I wanted to go back and complete my degree in order to advance my career, and with the desire to do well came greatly improved academic performance. I sometimes wonder how it would have been to have experienced the ‘traditional’ college experience, but the flexibility of the online format fit my life perfectly at the time I was enrolled.” -Stewart D., student at Columbia College

Student Review: “Jefferson College was a good choice for me to attend when I needed to earn a few credit hours to get back on track at my main university. Jeffco is a community college with three campuses, including one close to my residence, so it was extremely convenient to stop by and take a test. During my time at Jeffco, I took several online classes. These classes were really nice since they allowed me to continue school work at one university and then come home to work on the Jeffco classwork. The two largest downfalls I experienced was the fact that some professors either didn’t seem to know the material they were teaching, or they didn’t allow off campus testing, which would have been nice on my longer days at another facility.” -Jasmine K., student at Jefferson College

Student Review: “I love Lindenwood. I am in the communications department and studying interactive media and web design. I will have to say the best part is the professors. I have had very few bad professors in my time being at Lindenwood. They actually care! If you e-mail them they will give you a good response and they will actually sit down and take time to help you if you need it. My negative comment about Lindenwood is two things, I lived on campus for one semester and hated it, there is no interaction or fun on campus. No one gets involved in anything. If you are looking for a University experience this is not the school for that. It is very education focused. Also they use paperwork for everything. I don’t think they know how to use computers in the administraion area of school. Just be prepared for a hassle.” -Kels H., student at Lindenwood University

Student Review: “I first attended Metropolitan Community College at the Kansas City, MO campus. The campus itself felt safe and secure, considering its downtown location, and the facilities were much more than I initially expected. The instructors were more willing to work one-on-one than some of my high school teachers had been. Overall, everyone I met in KC encouraged me to get as involved as possible and to follow my dreams. I found the same when I switched campuses. I chose MCC so I could stay close enough to home to see my younger sister graduate, and soon we will be attending together – maybe even sharing classes. I appreciate the start MCC gave me for my education, and the people I met that allowed me to flourish.” -Sarah W., student at Metropolitan Community College

Student Review: “My experience with Park University was a good one. I liked the fact that the online classes were taught in a way that allowed for different learning styles. Park is a big fan of training students how to function as a team in the workplace and the experience I obtained from this has greatly helped me in my career field. Although Park teaches the majority of their students online or at remote military campuses, there is a sense of community amoung the students. Park University is also a very diverse school and offers the students a chance to learn about other cultures and lifestyles. The teachers were knowledgeable and almost always willing to help out. The only downside for me was that the administrative staff wasn’t always the best. I had trouble with them losing documents and having to do paperwork twice a few times. Overall, I am glad to be a graduate and would take classes there again.” -Jennifer F., student at Park University

Southwest Baptist University (Bolivar)
Bachelor of Science | Criminal Justice

Student Review “Attending Southwest Baptist University was a very rewarding experience. The criminal justice department was small so I was able to get more help and advice when it was needed. The staff was very understanding and very open to communication. The campus was just the right size and offered all the necessities. The classes were challenging which helped me learn and become more disciplined to study. There were plenty of opportunities to become involved in groups and organizations related to my degree as well as other campus activities. The one thing about SBU that I would have done without was the mandatory chapel attendance. As a non-traditional student and parent, it was hard for me to make childcare and work arrangements in order to attend chapel. I believe that I received a great education from SBU and would attend again if I had to do it all over.” -Alicia Z., student at Southwest Baptist University

Student Review: “Truman State University is an excellent mid-western liberal arts college. Truman is often ranked in national collegiate rankings as a “high value” or “best buy” school because of the quality of education Truman students receive in relation to the total costs of attendance. I have found this reputation to be absolutely true as Truman professors are masters in their fields and very knowledgeable about the subject matter that they teach. At Truman, most courses are taught completely by professors with very little graduate student involvement. This and the small class sizes allow students to really engage themselves in their own education and work closely with their professors, resulting in an excellent overall education. I found that the campus is beautiful and the educational resources are abundant. There is always a place for everyone whether they are looking to study, research, use technology or just find a place on the quad for a quick game of catch. The older dorms are kept up nicely and the newer dorms are like three star hotels. The food is decent and although Kirksville can be less than exciting, Truman itself is an outstanding institution.” -Matt N., student at Truman State University

Student Review: “I loved it at UMSL it was a great experience that was affordable and allowed me to grow as a student and as a person. It was a great alternative from the normal four year college choices that are around my area. UMSL is a school where most of the people travel to the school and there is little on campus action. UMSL is located right off Highway 70 and is very easy to find and get to during main transit hours. Also as a student you receive a free Metro Pass which is great if you live closer inside the city of St.Louis.” -Paul O., student at University of Missouri-St. Louis
