Cowley County Community College Reviews

I have had many online courses since I have been attending Cowley College. In most instances, I prefer the online courses. I have found that they work better with my schedule and I also like that the students can basically choose when they have "class time". I feel that online courses also help students with their work ethic. Almost all of the online classes require discussion posts once a week along with replies to peers. This helps further students' education and learning by interacting and reading about other students opinions or just what they understood from the chapter/week. It can be extremely easy to procrastinate with online courses since students are not required to be at a specific place at a certain time. It can also be extremely easy to forget assignments if the student does not have a good system of keeping track of everything that they need to do. The only critique that I have about taking classes online is that it is harder to communicate with the instructors and get questions answered. Also, when it comes to classes that are specifically for the student's degree it is better, in my opinion, to take them in class because it is easier to understand and learn what the subject.
Review Your College
The majority of the professors at Cowley College are helpful and oriented around student success. I heard about one or two professors that were not as strong in the categories that I listed. However, those professors are few and far between. All of the courses are well rounded and informative. Professors try to compare what is learned/taught in class to real world problems or situations. As far as the variety of courses goes, Cowley College offers a wide range of courses for many different degrees. The college is also smaller so the student to teacher ratio is small. I would say that the average student to teacher ratio for all of the classes that I have had would probably be somewhere around 10-1. I find this to be a great thing. It means that the professors will most likely be more able and willing to help individual students. This in turn creates more success for the students in all of their classes.
I could not have picked a better college to go to in order to receive my associates degree. This college is incredibly involved in really trying to help students succeed. If someone needs help, the professors are willing to do what it takes. One of my favorite experiences that I had with my Composition II professor was when I was really struggling on an essay. I had "writer's block" and could not think of anything else to add to my essay to make it the required length. I contacted my professor who quickly got back with me and continued responding to all of my questions along with giving advice until I had completed my paper. I will always remember that professor. She will most likely always be my favorite professor because she was extremely helpful and cares about her students getting the best grades they can. If I could do it all over again, I would undoubtedly choose the same college.
