Great Place to Start College – My experience at BGSU Firelands has been a great one. The class sizes are small, the student body is mostly working adults, and the computer lab is awesome. I have had mostly friendly instructors who have helped me succeed in their classes, which have flexible times. The learning center has knowledgeable tutors available. Financial aid process was a breeze for me, and the ladies in the office will return your phone calls quickly! There are a ton of different classes to take to fulfill your core curriculum as well, from theater to volleyball to lifespan development psychology. The only bad thing is some of the instuctors have been a bit hard to follow, I get the feeling they have other jobs and this one is not their top priority at times because of their scattered assignments. Also, only a few advisors know what they are talking about, so I have been scheduling my own classes for 2 years now. At least the website is easy to navigate.

I had a really hard time with some professors because they weren't there to help the students, but other instructors were very helpful and supportive. Some of their curriculum didn't make much sense, but other parts were wonderful. Class registration can be difficult, but meeting with your advisor really helps with that. Workload can be high based on what you take, but you choose pretty much the amount you take. BGSU Firelands has excellent special study options with the Teaching and Learning Center. They help you study if you need it or set you up with a tutor. We don't have very many programs other than drama or art shows at our campus. I believe we have some basketball too.

I thought I would learn better being in a traditional classroom setting, so I was wasn't sure about it when I had to take an online course. I realized I learn better when I read it rather than hearing it. You have to be dedicated to a schedule so that all assignments, discussions and tests are done before the deadline. I spent at least six hours a week reading and studying the textbook and completing the work in it, as well as posting on the discussion board and reading other students' posts. There were also the online lectures to listen to as well as the website work. The only peer interaction was when I responded to someone elses post. It wasn't a problem to communicate with the instructor if I had a question.
