One excellent aspect of LMU is the wide variety of classes that are available to its students, both graduate and undergraduate. Online classes are a way for students to take classes if they are unable to take the class in a regular classroom setting. I tested out of freshman English due to my ACT score and I was able to take English 210, which is normally the class that sophomores take to fulfill their English requirements. Because the class is mainly for sophomores and required classes fill up quickly, it was unlikely that I would be able to take it as a regular class. When I registered for classes for the first time, I learned that I would need to take my English class this semester online for that reason.
The one drawback I have experienced from taking an online class is that my classmates, instructor, and I communicate only through discussion posts. I thrive in an environment where I can have face-to-face discussions with my professor and classmates while being able to freely get clarification or add my input easily. It was a bit difficult for me to adjust in the first few weeks of taking English 210 since that is how I learn best. After some time, though, I found myself enjoying my online class more than I ever thought I would.
