What I particularly enjoyed were my experiences with my professors. Almost all of my classes ranging from my actual major to English and other core subjects were excellent instructors who did a great job helping me grow from the person I was after graduating from high school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only real frustration I had was occasionally dealing with the student center. They can at times lose track of things and it can be quite a headache if you don't stay on top of it.

I liked classes online but nursing school taught me to enjoy my in-class time as well.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I wasn't a big fan of their clinical attendance rules.
