Coming from a traditional four-year institution, I have always been curious about career schools. My trip to Medix School in Towson, Md., left me amazed at the exceptional service they provide to their students and also the critical skill shortage void they are helping to fill in the allied health sector.
There are many things for students to consider when deciding to attend college. One of the most important is making sure that the education they receive will help them find employment upon graduation. I visited National College in Lexington, KY, recently and spoke with campus staff regarding their school’s ability to help students after they graduate.
“We are all about jobs,” said Jim McGee, director of admissions at the Lexington campus.
The Imagine America Foundation recently got a whiff of something new over at the Lincoln Technical Institute campus in Columbia, MD. We decided to pay a visit to check it out, and what we found was quite exciting. Lincoln Technical Institute has opened a brand-new Culinary Arts wing. Three new modern industrial kitchens – two for cooking and one for baking – have been added to the 95,000 sq. ft. facility. The wing also has an in-house diner/café where training in the use of the latest restaurant, point-of-sale, wireless technology is offered to hospitality management students.
