Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

Overall, I enjoyed my experiences at this college. They have a variety of classes which you can take online or on campus. When I attended my first class, I was really nervous. The professors and students were so nice and helped me out. They showed me where my classes were and the computer labs. My economics teacher gave me some encouraging words the first day of class. She helped me realize that college is not as hard and scary as people make it to be. If you are dedicated and work hard you will do good and ace all your classes. My advice for prospective students would be that it is definitely a good choice. It is cheaper and really flexible with your schedule.
