    In my experience, Minerva has, without a doubt, the best platform for online learning. Having been in zoom lectures, I can firmly say that Minerva's platform (Forum) is miles ahead. With student engagement tools (reactions, polls, hand-raises), and lesson plan & teaching tools for professors, the technology is simply more fit for education. However, it's not just the platform. The professors themselves are also trained for active online learning. Students are asked to consistently engage in class discussions that are expertly facilitated by faculty. This both creates a much more dynamic and engaging learning environment, but allows all students to build personal and individual relationships with their professor, which is a huge plus when learning.

    The Forum is easily the best online platform to learn. I have used Zoom, Google Meet/Hangouts, Microsoft Groups, Skype, Coursera, and numerous other platforms. Without a doubt, Minerva's Forum is ahead by a mile or two. We can raise our hands, answer real-time polls, obtain real-time graphs of our responses, open and edit multiple documents at once, split up into breakout groups, react with emojis/emotions real-time, and more. The entire platform was built with the goal of delivering tech-driven seminar classes and facilitating discussions so every single feature is built with this very purpose in mind. The professors are amazing and well accomplished. Each class is capped at 20 students, and the professors cannot speak consecutively for more than 5 min. This environment facilitates extraordinary discussions where we further develop practical skills. One downside is that we focus on breadth, not depth. If you want to go straight into academia, Minerva may not be the best way to go.
    Minerva is an extraordinary institution with amazingly talented students and staff. There are three things that make Minerva unique compared to any other university in the world. First, the entire curriculum was built based on the science of learning. We take tech-driven seminar-style courses and we implement active learning all of the time. Second, we travel to seven different countries aiming to become global citizens who understand the complex dexterity in the world. This gives us a totally new perspective, and you can feel how you are growing with every new city that we visit. Finally, we participate in city-based projects, assignments, and work-study and we finish our education with years of work experience. Genuinely this is the best education I could have hoped for. I am not going to lie, there are some disadvantages and not everything is rosy, but I will never trade the experiences and the friendships that I acquired in these four years. Before you apply, make due diligence.
