Academic Experience: I appreciate the manner by which all the curriculum has been specific to my degree plan.

Of course the items that are not specific to the degree, things like ethics or different sciences, are more difficult, but fulfilling when the classes have been accomplished.

I find the workload to be manageable.

Academic Experience: Although I am concentrating on a PhD degree for counseling psychology, Walden University offers a great selection of different degree plans that are appropriate for students who are seeking education in a different field.
I chose Walden because they do have full online programs and were able to provide me with the ability to gain both my graduate and my doctorate degrees within the same university. It made my enrollment process smooth and easy.
The academic and enrollment advisers are the best I've encountered during my academic career. I could not ask for more.
The only thing that I do not see that would be of value is an online tutoring assistance group to chat with students who are struggling in statistics courses.

Student Body: There are a lot of nice people who do not have the higher academic skills of APA format and appropriate communication and grammar skills.

I am disappointed that doctoral students are not better prepared to write in a higher scholarly voice.

Student diversity is likely but unknown as the students are all invisible in an online environment.

The politics of some students seems to get in the way of their opening their minds to alternative ideas. There seems to be the same political behaviors in college that there are in general society.

Career Services: I am not in a place where career services could help me yet. I have many years to go before I can complete my coursework and obtain employment.

Online Courses: The online experience has been positive for most of my time at Walden University. The solid curriculum and improvements in academic quality are all very conducive to a positive academic experience.

Traditional classrooms are stuffy and do not provide the same amount of flexibility that adult learners need in order to maintain their lives around their college world.

The professors seem more willing to work with us in an online format than the brick-and-mortar schools who more likely work with younger college students.

The workload is appropriate for the level of education that I am working toward, with appropriate feedback from the instructors.

Peer-to-peer interaction should be more improved: many students do not get any responses to their posts in the discussion boards which makes them feel as though they are being eliminated from the academic process.

Academic Experience: The program was challenging but not unmanageable. I felt that most of the instructors were concerned with their students progression within the program. I liked the curriculum that was offered.

Online Courses: I thoroughly enjoyed attending University of Phoenix Online program. I was able to work at my own pace. My favorite part was the weekly discussion questions. This is where the students interacted with each other and the instructor.

4 College Senior

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am counseling major. I am just starting the semester but the classes so far are very interesting. Classes are touching the foundations of counseling.There are a lot of material to read and topics to research.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I just started but so far the network is fast and I have a prompt response from professors and technical support

3 College Senior

Career Services: they are ok.. I feel that I did not get the right information when I began and now have to do postgraduate work in order to do what I was told I would be able to do when I graduated. I think the staff need to understand the outcomes better.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Educators do not try to know you, but discriminate and chop apart your writing when that is the only way they even get to know you. I paid a lot of money to this college and now in my last quarter and this final quarter the professors are now telling me that my writing skills are not good. I have never been told this before and do not know what to do to make them happy and give me a good grade on my posts.. At this point, I just want to finish and get out of there. I am looking forward to beginning at Kaplan On-line university in September.

College Senior

Campus Resources: Im an online student. I have my own computer printing lab and must rely on my own network reliability

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Excllent professors, curriculum. Easy to register for classes, it is all taken care of for me. All I have to do is long in when it is time to start new courses. Work load is too be exptected at the graduat level and the study options are vast. Wish, although, that more options for advanced practice nursing exhisted.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Not sure of resources on campus, but online resources are plentiful and extensive

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The broad spectrum of students from around the globe allows for greater learning opprotunities

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Wonderful learning atmosphere. Tons of interaction and coursework is specific to the field of interest.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I was little skeptical about getting an online degree but after thinking about the freedom I would have, I went for it. I had a feeling the work would not be too easy so I was prepared to work a little harder. However, I realized how much my peers assisted me in each class just by the discussions. In a traditional classroom you are not often communicating with classmates unless it is mandatory; however, through online classes you have no choice but to communicate with your peers which is very helpful.
