Our school is very diverse; there are students from all over the world. This is great and I'm glad these people get these opportunities. But this also leads to a lot of groups that form weather it be by race, ethnicity, or athletics. People tend to stay in groups and don't communicate outside that group. It would help if there were more school activities that students could be apart of together. They have a student council that plans events like this but they aren't advertised well or people just aren't interest. This needs to be improved. Lucky at our school people overall are very accepting and open minded of others. The only problem I see in students is participation in classes, clubs, and school events.

We get the options that I think any other school would get; take classes online, self taught classes, or regular class with a professor. The class registration process is so simple I applied without any help online and understood everything I read. People get as much work as they set themselves up for you can take 12 credits enough to live on campus or more if you want to finish school ahead of others, but you have to be willing to work for it. Specifically my school is known for its wind energy programs and it athletic programs that involves coaching, athletic injury physically therapy, and the genrals program for those who want to transfer.

The amount of work I get is little enough that I can get everything done in class in a timely manner. This is nice because bing in graphic design I get almost no homework outside of class compared to other Generals classes I take. The program is decent, nothing amazing, I learned the basics of graphic design in the two years at community college. This is why I plan to continue at a 4-year college to improve my skills. But we do have top quality computers and facilities that I appreciate greatly.
