Nightlife: Between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., there is plenty of variety in regards to nightlife.

3 College Senior

Academics: The courses can be interesting, but some can be a bit boring, and they rely a lot on discussions in some courses. The workload is insane.

Campus Housing: Excelsior College is an online college. As my 'campus' is my own house, it's great.

Drug Safety: Again, Excelsior College is all online, so the drug scene is nonexistent. Can't get better than that.

Scholarships: Excelsior College target student population is working adults. Because this is the case for most of the student body, I feel that the financial aid department should be staffed with representatives that fully understand the dire necessitiy of providing correct information. Though policies are stated on the website, a student that calls inquiring on the procedures should be able to obtain accurate information. Their lack of providing the correct information to me was detrimental to my financial aid situation. Furthermore, their procedures for correcting any mistakes with regard to a student's financial aid status is subpar, at best. This has been my only negative experience with the school. But I feel, due to its extreme importance, it warrants addressing.

College Junior

Computers: Online learning is the only option so mandatory computer equipment at the students' expense is the only option without qualifying for financial aid.

Academics: My limited experience since beginning in January has been very positive. As I stated before, Excelsior College offers the only web-based transition course for an undergraduate degree in nursing for LVNs and LPNs. The college also promotes communication with fellow alumni. This facilitates meeting other students in like programs whom you otherwise would have no access to. I have been able to purchase my study guides and books this way.

Overall Experience: The program Excelsior College offers is unique to the nation. It is the only web-based LVN/LPN to RN bridge program which awards an associate's/undergraduate degree. All other web-based bridge programs are graduate programs. This enables Licensed Vocational Nurses the ability to work as an undergraduate Registered Nurse while pursuing a graduate degree if the nurse opts to further his/her education.

Greek Life: N/A;campus is web-based for distance-learning.
