Morris College Reviews
Morris College is a 4 year private institution. Its particularly small but that didn't bother me in fact it was another reason why I had chosen the college itself. The cafeteria setting, staff, and food was a little more than degrading if you'd ask me. The Professors were very knowledgeable about their subjects which was great they stuck to the school policy. The dormitories were an absolute disaster! Mold bugs and not secure enough security. Activities were on recycle spin meaning the same things we had last week for fun were the same things to do the following week. Student who stayed on campus over the weekend were introduced to a limited food choice and everything would be boring. The students got along very rarely you'll spot fights. Dress code needed to be enforced a little more aggressively because we are young women who are achieving greater things and life and guidance was truly needed. Tutoring was a plus great resources to help you achieve. Wifi needed to be stronger.
In today's society, online courses are widely used in colleges providing easy access to course materials, classroom discussions, and feedback to instructors. The course materials and activities may be accessed from any computer, whether it is from the University or from the comfort of your own home. I've taken two online courses since I've been in college and have benefited from those classes. There are a few reasons to why I'm drawn to an online education course as opposed to taking courses in a traditional classroom setting. First of all, I have a full-time job, which limits my opportunities to attend classes scheduled during normal school hours. Also online classes allow me to work on my own and move at my own pace. Finally, these classes offer more of a one-on-one teacher-student relationship rather than a teacher having to spread their focus amongst thirty other students.
The school can be a little more organized. Given the “mainly adult program” I’m enrolled in, I would like to see the staff to be more cognizant of our time. Most adult learners are attending school after work and our time is very precious to us. Professors should definitely take that into consideration when coming up with lesson plans. It would be very beneficial to have more teamwork and conversation during classes opposed to slide shows and lectures. However, really appreciate the one on one experience provided by Morris College, professors know each of their students by the end of the course. It makes me feel more confident to approach my professors for additional help or whatever I need. I like the personal attention given to each student.
