I love the online courses! They differ in that you have to have good time-management skills and you can set your own convenient time for class!

The workload will sometimes consist of outside assignments that you have to go to though (think i.e. an online government course that asks you to go to a council meeting :p it doesn't always happen and usually there will be assignments to make up for it but everyone should know). Personally, I think it's good that the online courses have these assignments so that you may have a more well-rounded experience rather than just sitting in front of your computer but it's something that should be mentioned in case someone has a very constricting schedule.

The professors have always been very much involved even if it's an online class and in my experience they have always responded to my questions in a timely manner even if it's by e-mail. There's plenty of peer-to-peer interaction because I have made lots of new friends online just as I would in traditional classroom-courses.

I'm very pleased with my school. I'm not one to sugarcoat matters. I know that experiences vary from individual to individual but for me personally- I feel that they've taken me in like a family takes in their child.

The teachers are wonderful, they make their coursework challenging but exciting too, and I do feel that there have been many teachers that care about you as a person (of course, there are bad apples everywhere and I have ran into one or two but I wont let that one individual spoil the bunch for me!)

I absolutely love the academic advising office because they have allowed me to set my schedule up in a way that works for ME. I think this is great because everyone's schedule is different and only I truly know what I can handle and how I can handle it. Of course, they look out for me too and make sure that the schedule I set up is one that isn't too strenuous but at the same time they know that we didn't all start going to college young and they allow me to take a class or two extra (don't worry, I have passed with A's ;)) because they know I can handle it.

I will say that I'm not too fond of the police officers at the school which seem to always be riding on everyone's backs and act like a bunch of hungry dogs looking for their next kill, it can make anyone uncomfortable especially with everything you hear on the news (hey, I did say I wasn't the type to sugarcoat things!).

The admissions office was the first place that I stopped by at and from there I knew I would feel right at home. Now that I'm enrolled and halfway through my AS Degree and looking for schools to transfer, I have come to appreciate another fact about this school and it's that the school is tremendously affordable! I have saved up so much money by enrolling here than if I had gone straight to a four-year institution! This is very important in my opinion because they're helping many individuals get started on their academic journeys without having to fear going deep in debt.
My experience with North Lake College in Irving, Texas has definitely been memorable... if that's the word you would like to describe it. The faculty members really are a big great family. The school environment is suitable and as for safety, well let's just say its getting there. Ever since the shooting incident that occurred this year in May on campus, my life has changed drastically. For the better and worse. I've learned that life should not be taken for granted and to be cautious of everything really is a vital sign in the world that we are living in today..
