Studying at Walden is fun. The online programs are best suited for the working student. The instructors are very friendly and approachable. The course content is well structured to allow critical thinking and interaction with other students in the class. The assignments challenge the students to think critically about concepts and to integrate the concepts learned into practice. The other services like the learning center, the writing center the library academic advising and 24 hours online help enhance the student learning experience at Walden. I look forward to pursuing my doctorate at Walden University and hope someone else finds this experience exciting!

For the adult student, the flexibility to obtain a degree while keeping full-time employment is amazing. Time management is key as there are still multiple assignments due throughout the week, and the course material is by no means "easy". It is still college and the course material is designed as such. Every class is 6 weeks in length which makes for a very fast-paced environment. If you are structured, organized, and success minded you will do great!
I enjoyed going to Walden, but do feel it was a little over priced and not a lot of communication. I wish they would spend more time and explain the program and wish there was more communication with the teachers. They expect the students to be on all the time and they should be available. I also noticed that each class and teacher have different ways of doing things instead of things being standard. I did meet a few teachers that went above to make sure that the student understood the material and was very helpful. The financial part is not good at communicating either. I was told that all my classes would be covered when I first started and now that I am almost done I have a huge bill to pay! Not very happy about that
