Tamlyn

Ronicia

My classmates are very well-mannered. We are like one big family who supports each other.

Kimberly

The students that I take online classes with are mainly older adults. Most of them are in the military or are retired from the military. And, the ones that are in military compared to the ones who are not are tougher on me when it comes to my work. But, they make me want to work harder which is the pace that they are use to. Those that are not in the military can be just as tough on me and also make me want to be a better student by challenging my work and my opinions of the subject that we are discussing. The online classes at Ashford University are awesome..

Heather

They are awesome.

Marla

My classmates are very enthusiastic about taking classes at Ashford University.

Krystal

The classmates I interact with help with my success. We support one another. We help eachother with feedback on our assignments. It is an extremely rewarding experience. They help keep me on track while I juggle a full-time job and taking care of my two daughters. I wouldn't have it any other way. I push them to succeed while they push me to succeed. It is as if we succeed or fail together.

Debra

The students come from many cultural and racial backgrounds, in fact, we have military personnel serving in the Middle East and elsewhere that attend online classes. I would say that there are a large number of traditional young students, but because of the economy's downturn several years ago, more non-traditional students attend classes, as in my case, to earn a degree that will improve opportunities for employment. Because I am an online student, I am unfamiliar with the students who actually attend Ashford's brick-and-mortar locations; however, for those students who attend online classes many are employed, homemakers, unemployed, etc. Online learning is so convenient and I highly recommend it for students who do not require face-to-face learning through a physical instructor. Online classes are not for everyone because it takes a tremendous amount of dedication and focus.

I've met people who are my age, older and wiser than me, have children, grandchildren, are minsters, returning students after retiring from a job, etc. Many of these people, although different from me offered ma so much wisdom and advice for hard issues I was facing within school and outside of it. Even though I'm not the most open person, I was able to let them in my life.

Jennifer

I attend online classes, so there is no face-to-face interaction. However, the school understands the importance of student interaction in the learning process. In order to still keep that aspect with online students, the classes require a discussion between students on a discussion board. My impression of the other students is that they are like any other students. They are eager to learn, they are smart, and they make mistakes sometimes. There is no rude or inappropriate behavior, so you are able to concentrate on your studies and are more able to learn from others.
