4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Really enjoying the online courses and the flexibility that I get with the online classes

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My teachers are professional and they take the time to explain what I did wrong or right on my assignments

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Sometimes it is hard to get the number of required photographs and meet the requirements for the assignment. For example, one assignment we had to take 30 pictures of different people doing something that show who they are, also that same week we had to have 100+ pictures in one specific category (mine was patriotism). Trying to get people to let me take their picture was hard, I found that many people either just didn't want their picture taken and shared with the class or they were just too busy with their own lives that week. And then on top of worrying about finding models for that assignment, I was focused on trying to take other photographs. And I was only part-time at the time of this assignment. Couldn't have imagined the stress if I had 2 more classes on top of it.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: So far I have only been part-time, so the workload has been okay. Sometimes stressful but not too bad. Stating in August I will be attending school full-time.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Anyone striving for a degree in media arts/animation, this is a great environment, as long as you can work on your own. You must be very dedicated and diligent to make this work
