Question
I am a frum woman who attended theQuite BrightPsychology
I am a frum woman who attended the school right out of high school for the summer, spring, and fall semester. I went to the Flatbush campus. The biggest advantage of this program is obviously the single gender and the keeping of the Jewish calendar in terms of holidays and Shabbos. This is a big motivator for a lot of people who go there. I didn't go back for reasons not having to do with my feelings about the school, however, I would not return. I am a person who seeks real learning, and while I was sometimes stimulated, a lot of my classes were boring, and I didn't really learn much in them. I felt that I could have read a book and gotten the information quicker. I did have a professor or two that were really interesting. I should point out that I always learn quicker than other people.

In terms of the students, everyone here is very friendly and nice. People don't really come here to make friends. They come here with their circle of friends and basically leave with their same circle of friends. Also, a lot of people work full time and come in the evening, and because they are so busy, they don't put any time into extra-cirricular activities, so there are very few.

The teachers were nice and helpful. I never had any problem with them, and felt they treated us well.

The offices were not so helpful.I don't think the quality of education is good at all, but like I said- the biggest advantage is the single gender and Jewish calendar.

Question
I found my experience in Touro to beDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I found my experience in Touro to be neutral. Its a very average college with good motivation to help students. My department was helpful, they followed rules all the times, which might not be what you want all the time. Student support department is helpful. They help you figure out timing and classes, which is a good thing.

Some professors are great, some are downright unqualified to teach (they might be the best in their field). I have had few teachers in my study period which were not involved again in Touro, I'd say that is a sad thing as Touro was loosing brilliant teachers.

I am not so happy with the curriculum as its just a collection of everything from every field related to the department (GST). It doesn't feel like a concentrated degree in a specific area. The course is everywhere!

I also found people some of my colleagues to be lazy, not involved in class and attentive. Maybe it was because of external workload or just getting a degree mentality, but that had an impact in the whole classroom activity.

Touro is one of the most affordable colleges in the US which makes Touro worth it. Dont expect everything from Touro in that budget. Saying that, Touro tries to make the best of whats with them. And as a student, its on you to be succesful. You will have to do a lot of hardwork. They dont have a golden spoon to feed you with knowledge and put a job in your lap. Good luck and weigh your expectations and requirements before joining Touro.
