Before The School Year Begins

There is little over a week left to summer vacation for not only me but thousands of students around the country.“Back to school sale” signs are posted around many different stores around town and the TV is filled with ads about school clothing and buying crayons or glue.

For me, I feel a little like I am left out.I don’t need to buy a new notebook, no books to try and find cheaper online, and no setting up my backpack with a calculator and plenty of pens.The next three months of the fall trimester will be all done from this very keyboard; as I am taking three new online courses.

Newborn
Johnson and Wales University is still in its infancy when it comes to online courses, and all of the classes that I will be taking have never been run online before.It will be interesting to be the guinea pig for these programs, but I am worried that it will be difficult getting a good grade.The classes and even some of the faculty teaching them are brand new, and who knows what it will be like trying to pass them.

I have always been a good student, as my GPA has never gone below a 3.5.The only problem is that I am a very visual person and I learn best from seeing someone do it, or even just listen to someone explain a topic.I really have no clue how these online classes are going to be set up.Seeing as there will be no information available to me until 3 days before the class starts I don’t how to prepare myself…or even know if I need to buy some uber-expensive book.

We’re all Pro’s here
With all of this worry, I would not have signed up to taking these classes if I didn’t think I could pass them with flying colors.Not only am I getting to take advantage of a completely new concept, but my opinion of them could greatly color the way these classes are offered in the future.I think it’s great that Johnson and Wales is offering online classes, so that students that may not be able to be physically at school can continue their education.For me, there is noting but pro’s to taking these three classes.I’m know everything will run smoothly and that I will get a decent grade, this will just force me to study harder than I have in the past…hopefully making this year a perfect 4.0!
