I was able to have classes according to the specific times during the week that best suited my schedule. The only frustrations I've had is when a professor only taught one or two classes daily and those classes ran out of open slots, so I didn't have the chance to register for those classes. I had to settle with different professors who were really difficult to deal with (only a few like this). I haven't tried transferring credits yet, but hope to do so this summer!

With all the difficult challenges life posed to me in my second home Ghana, I have matured physically and mentally. Now I am in Georgia Perimeter College ready to tackle my next hurdle of education that will make me whole.

Currently, I am getting close to my sophomore year in the college and I have really learned a lot from this prestigious community college. I have made a lot of friends, met new people and experiencing a good college life. The college has a good location, great teachers who are willing to help you in every aspects of education and it also has good associations to join. I am currently in the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement Program (MESA) and the Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Scholars Program (PSLSAMP). I would wish to use every opportunity I have to gain an associate's degree in my computer science major and to help transfer to a four-year university to obtain a bachelor's degree in computer science. This is the beginning of my journey towards success.

I've enjoyed having online classes because it allowed me to have a more flexible schedule at home. The online classes were created through BrightWeb. The workload was plentiful, however it was helpful with learning the materials. Peer-to-peer interaction was simple because we had icollege emailing and Blackboard messaging/live cam. The registration process was somewhat cumbersome because of the paperwork involved, but the staff were so helpful from start to finish. The professor/student relationship was a respectful one with trust involved. I've always looked forward to discussing the classwork material with my professors at any time.
