Going to either the Gulf Shores campus or doing classes online, Coastal Alabama was an overall peaceful experience. Going from all AP/Dual enrollment high school classes to being in a community college was very easy. It was actually much easier than high school, contrary to what high school teachers lead you to believe! The teachers were so kind and helpful. They were all obviously seasoned in their field and were passionate while teaching in class. Taking a little bit if time to finish up an Associates Degree was well worth the time, the friendships, and the cheaper tuition!

Coastal Alabama community college is overall the best college by far because it's not just a place to learn but to grown. For example it's incredible dorms on campus makes you feel like you never left home and the safety of the campus is always good! In addition to it's home feel the courses are challenging but overall fun because you can ask questions and really get one on one time instructers take time to make sure you really understand the material before moving on and that feeling makes you feel like you belong. Therefore overall coastal Alabama community college is by far the best college is ever category!
Even before the corona virus pandemic sent everyone online, I was doing mostly online classes at Coastal. They were easier to me because I could work the assignments into my schedule and be flexible with school and working. I found that it really was not more work, possibly even less work than a traditional class.
While I never met the instructor for those classes or the other students in the class, the teachers knew how to make good use out of forums. Many of them required weekly graded participation in online forums. This was a great way to still have the feeling if being a student alongside others in a class while being able to remotely do all of the course work.
