My experience with online courses has been great! Our online system, Canvas, is easy to understand and easy to access. The workload is about the same as a course that is in-class. The registration process for an online course is also identical to the registration process of an in-class course. Professors are great about messaging students and answer any emails very quickly. Peer-to-peer in great because most teachers assign discussions that require students to interact with each other.

Yakima Valley Community College, located in Yakima WA, is a small college but has various opportunities for college students. There is a variety of classes to choose from and counselors are always there to assist you when you’re unsure of what classes to take. The instructors actually care about their students not just about their grades in the class. They make an effort to get to know their students and are willing to make time to help them. It’s definitely a cost effective and affordable college which also provides dorms located close by. Typically, community colleges don’t provide students with dorms but YVCC does. It’s a great college to choose if you’re looking to start in an affordable community college to then transfer to a 4-year university, or just remain there. Regardless, I recommend YVCC to all.

I love the class sizes because there isn't a lot of people per teacher. This helps to get help from the instructor and class also goes a little faster sometimes with little distractions. When there isn't a lot of people in the class, it's also a good way to get to know people. Most instructors are great! They show their dedication and they crave to your success. There are also a few who don't show any care what so ever.
