The online courses were even more overloaded that a regular on-campus class, and the platform used for online classes could certainly be greatly approved.
My experience here at Carl Albert State College has been very smooth. I attended the Sallisaw campus as a concurrent student and then decided to go to the main campus to advance my education once I graduated from high school. This is currently my second semester here and I am loving it! It is a very relaxing and otherwise calm environment. There aren't a lot of noise complaints or safety issues with the campus. It's a nice first step for anyone wanting to continue their education out of high school.
