Newberry College Reviews
Due to COVID-19, all Newberry College classes were moved online. This transition was very challenging and took time for adjustment. Personally, I learn best in the classroom setting. While Newberry offers online classes, I prefer on campus learning. This particularly has to do with the Nursing department since classes are all on campus. Once the online transition took place, I used my Internet resources to access the virtual learning classroom. Professors kept in touch via email. All homework and class assignments were uploaded on the Newberry College Wolf Den account. To keep the classroom setting, many professors used Skype as a way to video chat students. This made learning more virtual and we as students were able to pretend that we were in the classroom setting. Online classes are very challenging and can be hard to keep up with. With eager and willing professors who engage with their students, I was able to excel in all my classes and continue to advance my education.
I took two online courses over the summer at Newberry College. They were three-week courses and had very heavy workloads. My professors had two different teaching methods, one held class sessions via zoom four days a week and my other professor held a single conference call per week. Though both methods were different I was still able to complete the coursework with the available resources given such as notes, videos, powerpoints and examples of documents and work due. Overall the courses were insightful and taught me to take responsibility of my education. I would recommend students take online courses at Newberry College as it helps to boost GPA as well as get people ahead of required courses.
Newberry college is a great college to go to, especially if you aren’t looking to go to a big college or university. It’s pretty small compared to other colleges so it’s better because you can interact with professors and classmates better!
