I like all the connections ive found from Olney. I do not like how all the clases is in one building- making you feel like your still in high school. I enjoy it being local and being able to experience college with my friends. I enjoy the fact i can stay home and save money because the college is close to home. This way i can also work around home and enjoy the college life altogether. The professors are very kind and understanding considering our busy college schedule and life. The campus uses Canvas, which i found to be amazing. The professors are good about linking papers etc back to canvas to acess it all in one place.

I have not yet attended the college but just going through the registration process has been great. While going through making appointments, phone calls and signing up for classes, I have had a great experience with the staff. The staff have been very friendly and helpful throughout the process of enrollment. They have been flexible getting me in for appointments and phone calls .I am very greatful for how quickly and easily they were able to register me for college.
