3 College Freshman

Online Courses: I'm not really the type of person that typically does well in an online setting, however Rio Salado does a pretty good job making sure that it's a little more versatile for anyone. I personally just prefer smaller schools so it's not my favorite school ever, but probably one of the best community colleges for anyone that needs the flexibility of an online program.

Online Courses: Desert Vista High School provides students with many courses to pick from. Many of these courses can be taken online, and I have found that to be very helpful throughout the years. I have taken online government and online Public Speaking, and I must admit, it was completely different from your typical classroom experience. Although I have found online classes to be extremly helpful for me to recieve all credits needed, it was harder for me to understand and really soak myself in the lessons being taught. I have found online classes to be more difficult for me because if I have a question I cannot simply raise my hand to ask the teacher a question, or turn my head to ask one of my peers. An online class is not for you if you want to have a relationship with your teacher. I have also found that online classes feel more easilly to set aside, and that the classes in the classroom present more motivation for me to get my work done.

Online Courses: I really enjoy going to Rio Salado. Everything was simple to navigate and easy to get all my classwork done. I learned to manage my time well, and I am able to have the freedom to work full time and do homework at night.

Online Courses: easy to register for and pretty self explanatory. it will be nice to not have to worry about travel time and I can work more to be able to afford school. online seems like it will be the right fit for me.
