Its All Here! Generally speaking, my school has many resources that help all students to engage and communicate with one another, even the instructors. Most of the students are up in age, and some are young. I like that tutoring is offered in almost any subject, and the exciting part about it is that its free. My school makes it easier for students to communicate, and share ideas with one another; even make new friends. The campus is peaceful in the summer semester, although, i'm not sure how it is in the fall. The school itself is great!

Online Classe – To take online courses you have to be self driven and motivated and that I am. Im very good in managing time and meeting dead lines so taken the classes online was not a stressful experience.The down size to online courses you're not able to ask question and get response at that moment, so the professor/student relationship is limited. If i had to take another online course,I would!

The student body is mixed ages. There are more 18 to 25 year old students but older students are well represented. The student body is 80% African American and 20% other. But if you are in the other as I am you are not treated differently. The administrative staff does its best to help you achieve your goals. The professors are almost all American and communicate above and beyond what is necessarily. Having had professors with heavy accents in the past this is refreshing. The school goes to great lengths to describe what is expected of each student. Classes in my major, computer science are geared toward certificates so you can get out into the workforce as fast as possible.
