I only took online classes when the whole campus switched to them at the end of last semester. Many of my professors were prepared and were able to quickly transition to online classes for the rest of the semester. The material was presented clearly, and there were multiple options to communicate with professors and learn from them online. I personally didn't have any trouble with Utah State's online testing and course material. Some courses weren't able to fully transition to online, but they did a great job to accommodate for the rest of the semester!

Amazing! I did take a few classes online and a lot through the extended learning campus. I found that the experience to be very helpful to my degree. All of my classes related to the degree that I obtained at this university. I believe that the advisors and professors were very helpful to help me achieve my goal of getting a well rounded education. From my internship experience, to getting a job. USU has all of the resources available to help their students find the success that they need to achieve what is necessary. I think from this there is a lot to consider as far as what degree you want to go into, what the overall overhead cost is, and how much time you need to get your degree. This school is very accommodating and tells you what you need to do to get into a particular degree, what it will take, and how to achieve what you want.
However, I think there are some things that can be improved on. Also, students need to know what they want to go into and have a plan in place.
The environment at USU is very safe and inclusive. The people I've met here so far want to make positive change in the world, and that's why they're here at college or working with college students. USU has taken precautions and has kept us well cared for throughout COVID-19. The professors and staff are knowledgeable and teach fantastic classes. There's always something fun going on for students to participate in, and there is so much school pride!
