    Great experience for students taking online learning. I was thrown into online learning this year due to the pandemic as was everyone else on campus. At first, everyone was finding their footing and figuring out what was the best way to teach these classes. But over time, as is with everything, the classes got better as well as the teaching.
    Classes were held on Zoom and attendance was mandatory. Cameras were optional however, but most people kept them on during sessions. Information was able to be taught by the professor with the share screen function and made learning easier in such a hectic time.
    Some classes remained to be on-campus but for those that were moved remotely, they rarely missed a beat. Teachers were outgoing and tried to get all their students involved so that morale/participation was high during such a global crisis. Overall, I enjoyed the experience of online classes, which honestly was something I never thought I would have to take part in.

    You will meet some of the nicest people on campus, faculty and student body is overwhelmingly supportive. There’s a huge focus on sports at school (almost everyone is some type of athlete) but there are options for artistic students as well including acapella, theater, and dance student groups. The dining hall is better than most but not great but there’s always some options you’ll like. Student support by faculty on campus is better than other schools I’d say, maybe not with some professors directly but with the student affairs and support departments for sure. Campus is beautiful and the library is excellent, parties are somewhere in between, but there are a few different ones (on and off campus) going on Friday-Saturday, you’ll find one that’ll fit what your looking for. Standard dorms are okay, they vary in size but are pretty good but as far as heating/cooling you’re on your own, there is AC/heat but it’s sketchy (bring a fan and some extra blankets)
    Springfield College is a great school, going in as a freshman is obviously scary but they did a great job of bringing us together by having orientation. The dining hall is not very good but you can always find something! The campus is very pretty and nice if you are looking for a smaller campus. Our athletics are amazing and there is always big fan sections! The parties are of course very fun but you just need to find your crowd!
