One of my professors failed me because I addressed with Sir on my email. Due to he don't know the meaning, he replied why did I address him that way. I explained that is respectful, and courtesy word. Also, my loan was influenced after graduation by 9,000.00 . I asked about it, (name with held) as the supervisor of financial aid in 2019. He apologized and said he saw the excess bill, but promised to tell the team to correct it. He emailed this. Next thing I had when I called to thank him , he was fired for telling the truth. Since then, I have been calling but the current supervisor told me that she was not there at that time. It is still in my loan to pay. The money I did not use for school or refunded. I just need help on this matter

Walden university is an online school that is very rigorous and well-run. It accommodates students who work full time and are returning for further education. The professors are very well-trained in their field and accessible. I wish there was more interaction outside of the online classroom as it can be quite isolating.

Walden is a great school to get your BSN online. I did the BSN AIM Tempo format. I found the courses interesting, challenging, and relevant- and I actually learned more than I expected to. The courses were well organized and it was all pretty much spelled out on how to complete assignments and competencies. It took me 1 year to complete the 10 courses I needed for my BSN.

    Dear Nataki, as you embark upon your senior year, I share with you hindsight from 25 years post-graduation. The underlying theme of what I want to share with you is to implore you to make your goal inner happiness. From that, let me share the following 2 tips I know now, but wish I knew then: 1. Manage fun into your busy schedule. You have always been diligent in making progress, completing tasks, and checking things off the list. However, enjoy life! Allow things to happen rather than trying to plan everything, and deviate from the plan once in a while. 2. Identify and pursue your passion.

Regardless of what you try to do, you will find that it will be a recurring element in the things that motivate you most. You will be fine in whatever you do...you are must made that way. But take it from me - these 2 tips will increase your joy and your success!

  6. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    That they would raise the technology fee each quarter I attend, it started at $40 a quarter now it is up to $120. They provide no techonology to me, I provide my own internet, laptop etc. It cannot cost them that much for online students, because they are also receiving money for students attending on campus. I am not sure I have enough aid left to even finish my BS of Psychology and then what happens? I do not get to finish, all due to them raising their fees each quarter?
