I've enjoyed both the online and in person courses I've taken. However, there is a large gap in difficulty between professors sometimes. I had a situation where I got a D in an Astronomy class because due to horrible luck I couldn't make it to the final test and the teacher wouldn't allow for a retake, so I had to retake the course again with a different teacher and found that the workloads between teachers varied significantly. So it is important to look into which professor you choose when registering for courses!
As an Autistic student I wanted to chose a university that was the perfect fit because I struggled in math and science sources in High School. I had to make sure I had the right advisers/staff in the special education office so that I would be able to receive the best help that I could get so I could do well in my enrolled classes so I was set up for success. Everything I hoped for became a reality, the special education office set me up with a lot of great tools to use and commendations for extra help that was geared towards me and material that would make sure I would be successful. My instructors friendly attitude as well as their amazing support has made college great for me so far and I can't wait to see my future at the University. I am a very fortunate student to have amazing instructors, advisers and classmates to help me succeed
