I found my first classes to be very informative. In Adult online learning we have worked on our personality style which helps in studying and have been given access to many resources to help us grow and learn. The best part is the intertwining of the Bible throughout the classes. As an adult learner and being out of school for so long, it was intimidating at first, but the assignments eased you into the classes and a lot of it was your own thoughts and perspective that you are free to share. I just love it and have used my life experiences to add to the class. While doing this you are learning a lot about APA and how to structure writing papers for school. And you are able to learn about others in the class and their goals and things about their lives where you can relate and encourage each other. It is so uplifting!
I had dreamed of going to Colorado Christian University since I was fourteen years old. After competing on campus with my high school debate league and meeting some of the professors and students, I was immediately drawn to the program. After some more research on my own and eventually great feedback from friends who began to attend the school, I was sold! Now, weeks into my freshman year, I am so overjoyed to be here and loving every part of this school! I would recommend this school to anyone who has a strong desire to be in an environment that builds and strengthens their faith, while also providing first rate education!
