Its the best because there are young, old, wealthy, average, and check to check individuals of of ethics working together for different reasons. Some have parents who own businessrs and they are there to recieve some type if any type of degree. Some are there because they are trying to impress friends and family, increase pay, othing to do at home and then theres people like me. I attended college because while working at the job I had at the time the ruled and regulations were not in tact. Still not intact. The rules and regulations benefited the patients but set the employees up for failure. My goal was to get my degree and take over that same facility. So some people are there for a purpose, just my opinion, and some are there for their future.

It was ok because I stated off beung a ground student. My grades and GPA was awesome. Hiwever, I was forced to go online. I had to go online do to not having enough staffing. This through my GPA way down because of the participation, no break in between classes, and of course my grades began to seriously drop. The participation 4 days out of 7 was one of my biggest frustrations. Not only did I have to go online, my job would not cooperate with me even though the class was given on a Friday night. So I was now stuck being an online student. Also, being that I was recieving financial aid, online cost an extra $500. This almost cost me big time with not completing college with 3 classes remaining. Thank goodness fir the unexpected finances.
