My online experience, at Voorhees College has been a very successful one. I can stay that, before Corona and after I've got my work completed. Before the incident, I only had 3 online courses. But after Corona, I had 6 total online classes. The professors at Voorhees did, well with communication as far as understanding the material. They also allowed, re submission of not only current assignments but also past assignments. The faulty and staff of Voorhees also allowed help, with issuing technology devices for students who didn't have them. Such as giving away laptops, and issuing grants and stimulus. Voorhees College has really out down themselves, they've really opened their arms to help the student body.

I'm a freshman at VoorheesCollege, about to go into my second semester. Majority of my family, has attended VoorheesCollege. It's a great school, one of the best in South Carolina. VoorheesCollege so far, has really been like another home for me. Everyone knows each other, and it's a religious school. Which that's a good thing, because my major is Theological Studies. I just love the annual Chapel services, that are held every Tuesday. Also singing on the great VoorheesCollege Gospel Choir is a joy in itself. After graduation, I plan to become a Pastor and start my own church. By the grace of God, many people will be touched and saved by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Voorhees has all the necessary tools, that will help me achieve this goal. God has already network me, with many people in the same field I'm achieving to do. It's a homey environment, a small but effective community. VoorheesCollege where we BeginBelieveBecome.
I love Voorhees College, I school majority of my family members attended. A historically HBCU, the school is of the best of it's kind. I love the fact, that its not to big to get lost in. Having a family orienated environment, I love my school. Even the history, behind how Mrs. Wright overcamed opposition, to create the school in 1897. Now 123 year later, this woman was the first of color and woman to start a school. I also love the choir, singing with my choir members and director. I also love the small, peaceful, and powerful impact of the school. If they would ask me to comeback, and teach I would. I love my HBCU, Voorhees College where we Begin Believe and Become.
