There is a fairly limited selection of courses, but most of the professors are great. Many courses are offered online, and some are even hybrids. Class sizes are small, so you can get a lot of extra help if needed. Three or four of my classes had less than ten students!

The school's system for online courses is amazing. Canvas is the main program that is used for submitting assignments, viewing grades, and communicating with professors and other students. It is easy to use, rarely has problems, and allows for notifications sent straight your phone or e-mail. There is even a great forum area that some professors use to encourage class discussions. Some professors that teach face-to-face classes do not know how to use this well though, which can cause some frustration.

For the most part, professors are willing to help students and courses are interesting. Math program needs serious improvement and are much harder than they should be because of professors not teaching similar work that MyMathLab does. The programs for all majors are sort of straight forward. There could be new, interesting majors incorporated. Class sizes range from 7-35. It's decent, but many students don't try their hardest. The joys of community college. For the most part, though, it's been a positive experience.
