I took one online course (psychology 205), and I must admit that I was pretty nervous about it. I was afraid that if I did it would be an extremely difficult, strenuous course that was difficult to complete tasks and assignments, possibly harming my GPA. However, I was pleasingly surprised at the ease of the online courses here. The teacher was amazing in explaining the assignments and getting the other students to participate in helpful discussions. I learned a lot and this class actually turned out to be one of my favorite courses. But a warning to anyone looking to take online courses: Remember that you have no lectures so you have to MAKE your OWN lecture time at home to teach yourself or go over the professors online notes in order to succeed! Sometimes it is a lot of work, and others it is not so much. Just be prepared!

Having small classes makes learning a more personal experience. All of my instructors are highly experienced and really love to teach. There's always something extracurricular going on, such as free food, outdoor dance lessons, book clubs, even karaoke.
The environment cannot be beat!

The campus offers a couple of really great, easy accessible services. The library is big and fully stocked with many computers and tables for doing homework or using your own computers. The campus bookstore is always fully stocked with the books you need along with testing booklets and scan trons. There is a campus cafe that has a wide selection of snacks, meals, and coffee (which is a major necessity for college students)! We also have an auditorium for theater performances and speakers from all over that come so that students in public speaking can get their grade for going to see speakers! They are all with in five minutes of each other!
