My experience at University of South Carolina Upstate has been a challenging, yet exciting one! I am an online student, therefore, all of the courses I am enrolled in, are via Internet. Personally, I wish I had the open availability to attend actual classes on campus, but online has been very beneficial for me. I have had very intellectual, kind, and caring professors thus far. I am thankful for this! Over 80 percent of students are nervous or have some type of worry pertaining to online courses, yet the online professors at USC Upstate have made the materials and course content so easily accessible, as well as maintaining effective communication at ALL times. My beliefs regarding this university are all positive! My experience has been an amazing one. Honestly, I have enjoyed online courses, because I am not only learning and understanding the material, but I am also teaching it to myself, and finding out more about myself and how I engage and learn!
