My first online class experience was very successful. The syllabus was very clear and easy to follow. There were 2 discussion questions each week where I was able to respond to the questions and then read 3 or more discussions from other students and comment or provide feedback. That provided a similar experience as though I was in a classroom discussing with other students on the subject. The main assignment was due at the end of the week which was adequate time to turn in assignments. I like that this platform has a visual calendar that shows what assignments are due and when they are due so that you don't miss anything. Great instructors, they communicate and provide video conferencing to discuss any challenges or curiousities that arise during the course timeline.

The new campus is beautiful and it is such a friendly environment. The counselors have been super helpful and communicate important information very well. I am a senior in high school and plan on playing beach volleyball at the college and can't wait to experience all of the amazing reasons why I chose the college: athletics, small environment, friendly teachers and students, it's gated campus, and faith.
The most caring environment you could ever experience on a college campus. The communication between students and staff is efficient, there is great collaboration between staff members. The academic center is accessible to struggling students. There are resources for students to use during their academic journey.
