I did take some classes online. It's very convenient. The math class that I took online was pretty easy as long as you used the textbook and the tools given on the online lessons such as the "Help me solve this" and "Show an example". The teacher was nice and kept notifying when the quizzes, midterms, and final exam were due. He would also link some YouTube videos, but they never worked. However, you can find it yourself when you search the topic on YouTube. Also, there are online tutoring services. They are great and helped me out! Something that I didn't like was the presentations that the teacher put out about each topic. They never had words or how to do it. It was just the textbook put on slides. There weren't a lot of examples either. Overall, it was okay.

My major is Special Education Child Psychology, and the psychology classes here are great! The professors are very welcoming and willing to help you in any way they can. I just wish some professors would use Blackboard more and use email more, too. But I guess that is up to the professor's choice.

The food here is good, but the prices are expensive! Like one of those Starbucks Frappuccinos that you usually find in one of those coolers in a gas station are $3.15! Or a milk chug is $2.10! Even a hard-boiled egg is around $0.75! The prices should be much lower.

Student life is amazing! I write for the student newspaper and I love how diverse the paper is. You could write an opinion, a news story, a book review (or anything arts-related), you could take pictures of events or people and have that as your part of the paper, or you could join the graphic design team!
I went here a few years ago and they do an excellent job matching the professional and academic development of students with with academic and industry standards across the board. From my POV as a student, they seemed to have an effective, dynamic, and "battle hardened" formula for creating hoops (Kobe!) for students to jump through to meet the expectations of employers and transfer Universities.
Like everywhere there are some students that don't do well. There is a long list of whys for this. While the college will do their best to support students in their studies, they will not be able to rescue them from life.
They will tell you everything you need to succeed, but here are my tips.
1 Do your best to understand the expectations (Plan, schedule, organize, learn, be disciplined)
2 Emulate top students (Have a professional appearance, humble attitude, support the community)
3 If you find yourself falling short, find ways to make any progress you can. Its better than a crash landing
