I mostly take online classes becuase I am a single parent and work fulltime. The online classes are great. I feel that they are sometimes easier than attending the campus. The professors are awesome, they work with students to help them pass classes and some are available after hours and make arrangements with students.

Classes at MiraCosta are reasonable and the professors care. My anthropology professor, Lynne Miller, infused her passion in anthropology with her courses, creating an intellectual environment where every student thrived. However, since it was an honors course, the workload was heavy, with long essays due every couple of weeks on top of other homework. I also really enjoyed my non-honors courses, yes, even Calculus 2! When I originally signed up for Calculus 2, I thought I signed myself up for a death sentence, but with the help of Victoria Noddings, the difficult subject became manageable and interesting. If you told me 5 months ago that I would think Calculus to be interesting, I wouldn't beleive you, but with the right teacher, a stressful subject can became the highlight of the week. With classrooms relatively small, just under 35 students are enrolled in each class. To get good grades and results, students must work hard and pursue. I spent every day at school in the school sponsored math lab, where tutors come rushing to help with any mathematical question. To reinstate, the resources given at MiraCosta make it almost impossible not to succeed.
