Pacific Oaks College Reviews
I love the courses. I love that there is a lot expected of me. Everything is online now. Not all teachers are engaging. It can be hard to reach some and this makes it difficult if you want to ask questions, and learn how you can do better. That can be both good and bad. We are all adults and we have to figure out how to deal with life's complexities on our own. This is a good way to learn and practice those skills. What I am learning is essential. What I have learned in a year has created a lot of growth in me. My reasoning and writing skills have grown exponentially. I am looking forward to this next year and graduation. Everything I master here at Pacific Oaks will be taken with me to my graduate school.
I had a great experience in the beginning when they sugar-coated how the school was great during the open house. Once, I registered and got into class, that was the downfall of staff leaving (San Jose Campus, the original staff who handle my paperwork did not communicate with the new staff on my enrollment. I was on campus but I moved to online due to personal reason but that took a while to do. My friend refer to this school and she had a great experience but for me, it is not the same.
I am a full- time online student. Learning online has been a great experience, communication and interactions between peers and professors are constant. There is a collaboration online that feels like we are in a classroom environment.
