I am enrolled in the Distant Learning Program and at times I feel like I am forgotten about because I am not able to go to the school and ask for help in person. I would change to communication between the students themselves and between the student and their advisor. I have not be told about any study services or discussion forums for other online students. A lot of communication is by email which can be frustrating when trying to get some immediate help.

I would like to feel like the Distant Learning Students are part of a community. After admission, there should be resources given to help students connect to one another for study purposes.There was no orientation available to get accustomed to an online program. I think there should be an assigned advisor to help navigate through the course. Then there would be a consistent person you can contact with any questions or concerns.

Cedar Valley College is the perfect source in achieving an Associates Degree of your choice. I have always believed community colleges to be great training grounds for anyone wishing to later transfer to a larger university. I chose Cedar Valley College because they have one of the best music programs in the Dallas metroplex. I eventually wish to major in Music, but for now I am attending Cedar Valley to get the proper amount of vocal and musical training needed for future studies. This college has some of the best music instructors who have great experience. I love the variety of studies offered to students. One factor I love about Cedar Valley College is the way they help you find your interest of studies. The campus itself is not the most updated version that could be offered, but I understand that it is just a community college. Cedar Valley College is a great place for students to receive a solid foundation needed before transferring to a huge university.
My years with Cedar Valley has so far been an amazing experience. I have been to one other college but, I think the professors and the environment is more professional at Cedar Valley. First and foremost I love the location. Its in the center of numerous cities and its hardly any traffic. I am very pleased with the overall courses I have took. The instructions are very simple and easy to understand. The professors are always there when needed for one on one studying and group studies. One of my biggest concerns is definitely the lack of security the school have. I would walk around the entire school and notice maybe 2 security guards on duty. Maybe add a couple more so every part of the school is secured. I would feel more safe if security was on duty inside and outside the school. I overall had a great experience at Cedar Valley, I would love to continue my experience and finish up my degree.
