I'm currently an online student and I enjoy having this as an option to further my career as a working wife and mother. One thing that I would like to change is the amount of interaction between students and educators. With the absence of building a rapport in the classroom setting, it makes it difficult to build a trusting relationship among students and staff.

what I like about this experience is that it give you options and more information about scholarship that any other website wouldn't and what I would change about this is that they should give more opportunities to the school that have your best interest.

It is easy to adapt to college life. As most colleges the financial aid is stressful. The classes are fun at times and the professors are nice enough to remain you about upcoming assignments.
