I think the best thing about online learning at this school was since most classes have about 20-30 students it was very easy to get ahold of your professors. For example almost every time I sent an email to one of my professors the would always get back to me within 24 hours, sometimes even in minutes! They were also very understanding and patient with transitioning online. For final exams if students did not have an ideal study environment to take a final online they opened up a place on campus for students to come take their final on physical paper while maintaining social distancing. I thought these small details made a big difference.

This school is a COMMUNITY! Since it is smaller you are able to have better relationships with the professors and staff. Everyone is super nice and helpful. Professors know your name and interests, you are definitely not just a number at this school! I would definitely recommend for someone who needs the personal experience when learning!
At best, it was like a project the was finished and submitted in right before the deadline. Under the circumstances, the did deal with pandemic and the overnight switch to solely online learning with grace, however, the delivery of the lectures online made for multiple long nights of going over class notes repeatedly to understand the lesson of the day and having to repeat the process for every class. They were very flexible in the hours that the professors offered to their students, so that was a BIG help to finishing my second semester.
