The professors are really trying to ensure that your experience is the best at Walden! When I started at Walden, I was excited to complete the program. Then, tragedy struck. It took me a couple of years before I returned. Once I was readmitted to my program of study, each professor I encountered went above and beyond to reconnect me with resources that would enable me to better understand what I was studying. Their feedback was priceless!
Review Walden University
Since initially attending Walden, I've met so many great professionals and colleagues via online as well as face-to-face during residency. I've encountered a few financial obstacles but with Walden's financial aid department, I've been able to get over these hurdles. Additionally, I enjoy the emails and newsletters for social change and community involvement. Thus, Walden is dedicated to social change and since attending, so am I! I am WALDEN UNIVERSITY!
The online course was difficult for me due to the lack of knowledge about the computer, how to properly submit papers and navigate around the classroom and the lessons, and the professor was helpful somewhat, however, ruthless in grading. First time on line students should be allowed more consideration and assistance otherwise, the experience dwindles from excitement to frustration by the end of the course. The course contains interesting information and research techniques that fantastic.
Enrollment is completed for you; textbook orders are fast and easy; and learning APA style writing is a huge challenge if you are already familiar with the MLA Style writing. The university rates 4 with me for all of the above reasons.
