Online classes to me were different and personally I didn't like the fact that there wasn't a lecture. I found it hard to maintain and having to teach yourself all the items involved. I have to say that it is a hard class when taking it online which you have to be careful with which professor you chose. Although, in general the online class was pretty nice to maintain. The professor responded quite quickly whenever I needed any help with assignments. Some professors even gained the option to call them for any additional explanation. Logic classes are hard to take online but I have to say that personally I maintained it pretty well. The professor was pretty lenient with assignments and correcting them. When their was an essay involved then the professor gave a good guideline or what she preferred and in general what she was grading. Although these classes can be pretty challenging I feel like it was actually a fun experience when you chose the correct professor.

This college is the best place if you want to get your general education finished before transferring to a 4-year university! This place is really resourceful if you need any type of help. The place looks amazing and clean and the people who work here are super friendly and helpful! The classes are decent sized and the teachers are really nice as well! You have teachers here that are passionate about what they're doing and will always help students when they need help.
I had many excellent instructers during the three years I attended. There were a few bad ones, but there are some bad apples in every school. The school could use a lot more funding, but they make good use of the funding they have. I liked the campus. People hang out outside a lot when the weather's nice. The cafeteria is also a great place to hang out, and there's a student lounge for people who participate in student life organizations.
The library is a good place to study. You can get a private group study room with your library card.
If there is one problem I had with the campus, it's that there isn't a place for students who take the bus to keep their things. As a student who took the bus and would spend 8+ hours on campus most days, having to carry my gym supplies, art portfolio, or lunchbox around everywhere was a huge pain in the neck. The school should have lockers for students.
Also, at least when I went there, the food was overpriced, unhealthy, and gross.
