Although I was very nervous about the overall experience when it came to an online class, it turned out to be fantastic! The online teachers really enjoyed what they did. I have taken 3 online classes now, and they have been just as good, if not better, in some aspects than my actual sit-in classes. If I needed help or support on some papers or other paper, the professors would not hesitate to help me via email or Blackboard. Also, we constantly communicated with the classmates through a discussion board. Overall, the entire online experience was fantastic; I would, and am doing it again!

African Americans and Card Games – My school has a different atmosphere than high school. Because the St. Louis Metro Link connects students from St. Louis to the college, we have a large percentage of the student body that is African American. They sometimes get rowdy during lunch (I sit upstairs with a bunch of people that play card games all the time, and we all complain about how loud they're being), but them being there means they want an education just like all of us college students, and they want to do something with their life. I hang out with a bunch of guys (and a few girls) that play card games like Magic the Gathering on a daily basis, and that provides quick relief from struggles of classes those days. I've made friends with a lot of people, and even learned that SWIC has an Anime Club (of which I'm the secretary of, a position that I've NEVER held before in my life). I've met lots of new people, learned more strategies, and have a pretty awesome time with them! :D

It is very flexible! The supervisor of my job, which is also where I go to school, creates the work schedules to work around student worker class schedules. Therefore, school and class interference is no issue. I also have time to go to doctor appointments when classes are over for the day.
