STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

CLASS OF A HUMANITIES STUDENT

I wanted to go to school to become a counselor. I knew in this area of study god is often excluded and many do not believe in God. I wanted to go to a school where I could get the education I needed to become a counselor but also be able to keep god involved. I wanted to also learn how I could keep god at the center of my life and still do counseling services.


Course Curriculum - 

I really liked the course curriculum. I thought it was very relevant to the area of study I was completing. I also thought the courses were generally easy to understand and easy to complete. The number of classes taken at a time was not overwhelming. Also, the teachers were willing to work with me in certain areas when I was beginning to fall behind.
