The professors and counseling are all very helpful when you are in need of help! I have never had a bad experience with a professor. One thing that needs to change a little bit is definitely the living space for the students that stay there. They need better dorms. Also, there needs to be a more variety of food in the cafeteria. Maybe a Starbucks or something on campus!

Due to COVID-19, we had to transition to online learning. The professors did an excellent job, even the ones that are not use to the online learning. We were all learning together. Each professor made sure the students knew about the online meetings and would remind us frequently. My professors did not want to exclude any student. They were all really reasonable. The professors even taught the students how to use some of the online technology. The professors made online learning enjoyable and easy.
This is a beautiful campus and it gives central Florida an academic center that had not existed twenty years ago. It is my home away from home. Teachers and students smile at you. Lots of places to meet up. Amazing after hours culture, theater and art. The facility and staff are always willing to help the students. If you ask a question, but one of the staff does not know the answer, they will do everything in their power to get you the correct information. It is an amazing place to obtain your AA degree. It is close to home. The classes do challenge me, but it will prepare me for the university level classes.
