My experience with online courses went very well! I logged in everyday to check for the assignments that were due and to check the discussion board in case a classmate had a question or concern. The instructor went by the syllabus so everything was ran by schedule and there were no surprises. The workload was challenging as any class would be but the convenience of not needing to be present in class gave me extra time to work on other classwork and still complete the work for that class. My online courses also taught me time management, organization and responsibility which are absolutely crucial to do well in these classes. The professor was very friendly and was able to reply to my e-mail in a couple of hours from when I sent it. Classmates were encouraging, friendly, and helpful as well.

I love my campus. My campus has a great gym; all the equipment I could ever want is there. The gym has a long glass window that looks out onto the lake behind campus. There is always a lady monitoring the gym and keys to lockers; she is very friendly and helpful. One time I asked her to give me a tour of the gym and she showed me how every machine worked, and even recommended an exercise routine.

My campus has a great place to hang out; the cafeteria. Its a small campus composed of two buildings, so we do not have a student center. Our cafeteria is our student center. I do wish we had more food variety in our cafeteria; all we have is a subway and a coffee shop.

Our campus has a decent library. Its got some great movies, books, and magazines. Its got its own computer lab; a great place to study. The librarians in my library are extremely helpful; I've had a research appointment that helped me tremendously find good resources for my research.

We have a few events here and there at my campus. Probably every other week there may be an event going on, such as a music group performing.

My campus is beautiful. I'm proud to give friends tours of my campus because it is just such a nice place to be! It is three stories tall, but left open in the middle so that everything feels connected. There is a lake with a fountain in the back; I love to study on the picnic tables overlooking the lake. Everything looks clean and new; it is refreshing.

VERY diverse! There are many locations for taking classes so it meets the needs for everyone looking to make a difference in their education. I see young high school grads like myself, older folks going back to school, folks trying to get a certificate for a trade or skill and even men and women taking classes to give them greater knowledge in their career field.
There is not a lot of social gatherings because everyone is their for a reason and then they move on to the next thing in there long busy day. Most folks look happy but most look stressed.
