My online learning experience with Bismarck State College is going well so far, I've had only a few issues regarding the online materials. We use a program called Blackboard Collaborate- an application in which students can access their courses virtually. Assignments, quizzes, exams, and learning material are listed. It is very easy to navigate, however, there have been a few technical issues regarding the live sessions, like losing connection or not being able to hear/see the professor. Besides that, it seems to be working great!

I'm really enjoying my experience at Bismarck State College so far. The professors always strive to provide the best education for their students, and with the smaller class sizes, we get more opportunities to speak with our professors one-on-one. Along with a fantastic educational experience, Bismarck State College offers many clubs and activities for students to participate in. Overall, student life at this college is very fun and rewarding- I am looking forward to the years I will spend here!
I would give this college a 4 out of 5 stars. I love this campus it is small and built around community. The teachers are very compassionate about teaching and getting students to learn. Also since this college is smaller, class sizes are smaller which give more one on one time, which is super great. The only downside about BSC is that there is not a good athletic atmosphere. There are athletics but very minimal, so this takes away from the college sports experience. But apart from that, this college has so much to offer.
