4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Walden University has a thriving online school community. We have more resources than i know what to do with. There are tutors for every course, automatically assigned to each class. They are there to help us day and night with any questions we might have. There are workshops to help students prepare for future employment and the rigors of everyday life. We are kept abreast and encouraged to become a part of current events around the world. The Walden Library is fully stocked with resources we need to do the best research possible. As for the general campus aesthetics, in the three+ years that i have been a student at Walden, I have seen the online campus revamped at least three times and always for the better. Walden University displays consistent dedication to ease of use ( for the students) as well as the highest academic standards.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The Financial Aid process at Walden University is one of the easiest. I had no trouble getting the loans and grants that i needed to start college again. It is only now ( in my last year) , that i see my financial aid running out. Being a single parent without income right now, i am getting a bit nervous about how to make ends meet while in school. Since Walden has gone out of their way to get me into school , I will go out of my to find the finances to stay.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not graduated yet. My mother enrolled at Walden University some days after i did. She is now completing a Doctorate program. She will be the first in my alumni network.

Academic Flexibility: I had taken CLEP tests in the 90's for classes like Spanish, History and algebra. I also had some credits to transfer from a college that i attended when i was 16 years old. The transfer of credits from one school to another was fairly simple , but the CLEP tests took a bit longer to transfer. I was thankful that any of those credits were honored by my new college ( Walden University ). I am a 37 year old returning student. Since these credits were over 15 years old, i was just glad that they were still transferable. Some of my credits did not transfer, but for the opportunity to get back into school, i accepted that.

Career Services: Academic and career advisers are very involved. They keep in touch with you regularly even after you complete the admission process.

Campus Resources: my campus is baised online so technology is a big deal. they recently updated their blackboard and classrooms and the improvements make it even more smooth a process than before.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Student Library is excellent! Resources are easily available including links to Grammarly and other programs that help with your writing projects. The research library access is very eclectic.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors seem to have a very strict position on student relationships and expectations. There is not much communication, besides what is mentioned in the syllabus. The workload is heavy, with many assignments each week. However, you do have a week to complete each assignment. The registration process is really easy and the enrollment advisors are great at keeping in touch. There are several study groups, online chats, and tutoring sessions.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am working towards a major in Psychology. My future carreer will be geared towards psychology and young children. This school allows me to not only get my degree, but to have an extra concentration on the subject of my choice. I am able to get a psychology degree, with a concentration on child development. I love that my college is able to do that for me. The course work is challenging, but it is exactly what I need.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I love how flexible my school is with my class schedule. I take classes all online, because it is the only way I can fit school into my busy schedule. I attended other colleges before settling into this one and I could never find the right school for my schedule. Unfortunately, many of my credits did not transfer, so that put me behind a bit. I have had a few setbacks, but I think this is the school for me.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The main reason I chose Walden is the online opportunity and the doctoral program. I have to work and attending classes online work for me.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The support system - library resources, advisors, financial aid and instructors have all been wonderful. The residency options have been unique opportunites for me.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It would be wonderful to have more scholarships available for public health students.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: The course workload is high, and requires a great deal of discipline if student's want to succeed. It is not a problem for me, as I do not currently work due to disability, but the weekly assignment workload is challenging for students who work, or have a family. There is some flexibility, as far as how often you must log into class, students have the entire week to complete assignments by their due dates, and how many peer responses are required per week. We are currently using blackboard, which has just been updated to make it more user friendly. There is typically excellent professor-student relationships, most professors highly participate in discussions, they provide excellent feedback for improvement, and there is a lot of peer interaction occurring on a weekly basis throughout a course. It is difficult to form peer social relationships, which is one thing that is particularly challenging in an online setting. Lack of face-to-face interaction is the one thing that is missing in online settings, but the opportunity to attend college online compensates for the personal challenges that people may face if they could only attend a traditional campus.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body attending Walden University is highly diverse. It is an international Laureate university, with students from all over the world. There are people from every culture and sub-culture, including all of the characteristics listed above. It enables us to learn from each other in very unique ways, with an opportunity to teach others about the cultures to which we each belong. There have been some challenges with regards to acceptance, but mainly from people with strongly negative beliefs. The biggest issue arises when students like me, who are members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender population challenge people's religious convictions. We continue to make strides towards acceptance, through education, sharing experiences, and applying course content to real-world problems faced by many populations.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: On the whole, the professors are top -notch, and have met or exceeded my expectations. Many of the professors have been role models, who I aspire to be like. Overall, the registration process is done with the assistance of academic advisors, and students are automatically enrolled in courses, according to one's plan of study, and the fulfillment requirements for one's major. The curriculum exceeds my expectations, as far as preparing me to be a psychology professional. One of the biggest programs associated with Walden University is their goals and mission to create scholars of change. The social change agenda is one which is important to me, and one of the reasons why I chose Walden.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: While the workload in the psychology program is extensive, I will be well prepared for entry into the professional field as a psychology professor, and a researcher for the social sciences. I do not know if they offer internships, as I am not quite ready for that as of yet. The school is completely online, so there are no facilities to speak of.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Although they have a career services department, they do not actually help you find a job. They do give advice on networking, developing a good resume, cover letters, and help you determine the jobs for which you are best qualified and suited.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Lots of resources available to students to take advantage of.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: They worked hard to get me my pell grant and my student loans.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Most of the students are great to work with. The difficulty I find is my college in online based. Lots of students from other countries that speak broken English which makes it hard to communicate.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Since there is not campus there aren't many resources for social events, but the library and resourses for assisting with the education are top notch.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I wish there was a way to interact more on a one to one basis. I prefer the classic class room setting to online, but I will continue my classes for the next year til I finish. It's hard to wait for responses from students and instructors when you are focused on completing a paper or project at the time.

College Senior

Campus Resources: It's an online school so I don't have to worry about the network at the school

3 College Senior

Student Body: The student body is diverse. since it is an online school, there are many from different countries studing in the same class at the same time. Most are people going back to school to start a different career. It's hard to interact with them personnally due to it being online and not face to face as a brick and morter school would have.
