STUDENT TESTIMONIALI see how online college has made me more independent and responsible and believe in myself more. Seeing my grades and all the hard work I’ve done make me work even harder.
One positive experience so far is how I’m able to do my homework online with distance learning. The online discussion boards are very important to my learning experience because they help me to communicate with my classmates and my professors and get the help I need.
The second positive experience I’ve had is Intelpath. Intelpath helps me master my success in online school. I determine my knowledge on Friday and work throughout the rest of the week on things I need strength in and more practice on. All I have learned so far has helped me better myself and learn what being a manager really is.—Ivory, D., BBA in Business Administration–Healthcare Management, AIU Online
