How long have you been taking Ecampus classes? Two years.

City, State where you live, work and take online classes: I work in Marietta, Ga. and live and take my classes online in Dallas, Ga.

Biographical information and educational background: I am originally from Kansas City, Mo. and other than community college, OSU is the only college I have attended. Due to military obligations and other personal life changes, it has taken me some time to get through college but I am still going to work on it until I have a degree.

Why did you choose OSU Extended Campus (Ecampus) to take online classes toward your degree? OSU was the only school I found at the time offering the online program in Natural Resources.

What do you like about this method of education? I can work on school on my own time.

Describe an instance or situation where you think taking courses online is a key advantage over the traditional college experience? Online courses give me the benefit of having a flexible schedule. I don't have to be in a class at any certain time.

What would you tell someone who is interested in Ecampus? It is nice for scheduling purposes, but I feel you have to work harder because you are basically teaching yourself.
