If you want to learn a trade, RankenBrightOther
If you want to learn a trade, Ranken is an okay school for the price. But stay AWAY from the dorms. Rooms are incredibly expensive and the residential life director, LaTrina Rogers is completely unapproachable with any problems, such as roommate issues or questions about upcoming "events". Speaking of events, she has openly stated that the number of events hosted for residents has been reduced significantly in recent years. The events were free for students, as the price was worked into the price of the room. However, as the number of events has gone down, the price has not. If you want to get online at all while living in the dorms, I wish you luck. For all the money you're paying to live there, none of it is going towards a good internet connection. If you're lucky, you'll share a modem with 7-10 other people, all with their own wireless devices eating up the bandwidth, and only two wall ports for wired connections, which is still incredibly slow. 0/10 experience in the dorms at Ranken.

Ranken is only worried about making money!Other
Ranken is only worried about making money! They say they are non for profit, but that is total wrong. I took the machining degree and there machines are outdated where does all the money go?? President and Vise Presidents!!! The instructors could care less about the students and Ranken. I heard some many great things about Ranken years ago and thought that it would be a great choice boy was I wrong. There are some other great options out there now at a more affordable cost. Do not waste your money at RANKEN!!

This college isn't worth it.AverageComputer Science
This college isn't worth it. The instructors have no teaching credentials and they suck at teaching. Half the time they just sit in the office. when they are supposed to be helping students learn. I'm surprised that they called themselves a college. they claim that they are better than universities in the st.louis area. I don't think so. School doesn't support students with learning disabilities. don pohl or who ever is in charge does not care about the students. only the money.
