Being accepted to Plaza College was an exciting moment in my life. It allowed me to achieve my goal; to complete a Bachelor's in the Business Administration program. Plaza College professors and administrative staff are dedicated to helping students to be successful in their endeavors.
“My mother graduated from Plaza. My father graduated from Plaza. My brother graduated from Plaza. I graduated from Plaza. We are very proud of our educational background.”
"Being a student at Plaza College has paved a new road of achievement towards a successful career in Medical Assisting for me. My time here has been filled with academic accomplishments on things I didn't think I could do! Plaza College is your career starter!"
“Professor Warmouth has always gone above and beyond in supporting what I need to do, whether it’s for her class or another in the program. She’s taught me additional skills on top of what we learn.”
“Everyone you meet here supports your career trajectory in one way or another. Dr. Anderson told me you have to know what you want and be on your ‘p’s and q’s.’ I realized I had to focus and buckle down on my studies to be successful. “
“I went to another school that didn’t give me the care and personal attention the way Plaza College does. They truly care about me becoming a better person."
"The Court Reporting Faculty at Plaza College has helped me in so many way. Even after I graduated, I have still been in touch with all of them and they have helped me with job placement and test taking!"
"I am currently in my last semester of the Medical Assistant Program. Our last semester comes with an externship component, where we demonstrate all the skills we learned at Plaza College. I strongly feel that Plaza College has prepared me with both my clinical and clerical skills."
"My admissions advisor guided me, set up appointments and sat with me through the process. Other schools simply threw the requirements at me, but at Plaza I received personal attention.”
“Academically, teachers are always willing to help you and will stay longer after the classes. They are responsive over email and you can always go to the Academic Resource Center (ARC) for extra support.”
“Being a single parent and coming back to school after a good amount of time was definitely a challenge and the professors have been willing and easy to communicate with. If I’m having a difficult situation, need some flexibility or need clarification, they’ve been easy to reach out to with no hesitation."
“The hands-on training has been a tremendous help in preparing me for my externship. Everything I was taught in all my clinical classes was exactly what I was able to use in my externship and more. The skills that I learned at Plaza College will help me in all of my future endeavors.”
“I chose Plaza College because I wanted to be in an accelerated program, where I am able to commit full-time, and start working as a dental hygienist much faster. One thing I can truly say is that the administration, staff, and the new long-life friends that you make here will help you get through all the obstacles one step at a time!
