I have a full load of classes, the first class I have is Human Anatomy which is a pictel class of 4 students, who are very helpful in making sure everyone has their assignments. The teacher is in another city and teachers through online video, I see no problem only that I can't really talk to him face to face unless I call or email. In my second class Lakota History II, I feel very involved. Our Tribal Councilman came to our class and spoke to us about the issues on the reservation and took questions. I enjoyed listen and participating. It even sparked my interest in the community more. General Psychology is a very informative class, and the teacher is very friendly and easy to talk to, I enjoy this class. The last class is Intro to literature, it is also very informative and interesting because I like to write on my own. I believe it will be very helpful in developing my writing skills. I feel I have a good experience with the student community, I have had no problems with others around me. Both faculty and students are very friendly and helpful if I have questions.

The school I attend is Oglala Lakota College and it is a very good school. I believe I have had a good experience while attending. I believe there are many opportunities to be involved in the school community. The faculty are very helpful and non judgmental. This school has always been there for me to give me a second chance when I needed one. I believe I would not be in school if Oglala Lakota College had not been there. The teachers are all very informed and educated, they present a lot of information about the community, and culture that have opened my eyes to the world around me. I sincerely hope this school continues on for a long time and expands.

The Oglala Lakota college is a great way to accomplish your education goals and help you see what's best for your future, also meet new class mates each semester you attend. I really liked my year here at OLC the staff are very assuring about everything and they are friendly and give the help that students need to understand the system of taking classes and financial outcomes of each semester completed. I would so choose my experience here again If I had to, or got the chance to. It taught me that there are more important things than stressing and worrying about not being good enough to attend a university, to me OLC was just right.
