Online University Review
Post On: Jun 15, 2014
I enrolled in the Criminal Justice distance learning program at Western Carolina University in 2009. I had no idea what to expect. I was 52 years old and I had a two year degree (AA) since 1977, but I never achieved a 4 year degree and I wanted that degree. I was nervous about facing a huge learning curve since I did not grow up with computers and I had not taken any college level courses in years. The WCU Criminal Justice staff was extremely helpful, very friendly, and I truly felt that the staff had a personal interest in my success. The staff were easy to contact and they answered all my questions. I will mention also that there is a contact in the library that is very helpful in research for sources to complete a paper. All the classes I took were very interesting and each class had discussions, tests, and a research paper as part of the syllabus. Strangely enough even though my class mates are "online" like me in our class discussions I felt like we were in an actual classroom on campus. I loved the distance learning program at Western Carolina University. I made several life long friends (fellow students and faculty/staff members). I doubt that I could ever find another group of faculty/staff members that TRULY CARE about student success. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I recommend the Criminal Justice Distance Learning Program for anybody that wants to get that degree, because if you are serious they encourage and support you 100%. A+ is my true grade for WCU!
