Lily's Story - Online Courses and Summer Courses

Lily's Story - Summer Courses and Online Courses

Hi, my name is Lily. I was born and raised in Regina. I am currently in my fourth year of studies at the University of Regina. Currently, I am working towards completing my Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in political science and sociology. While attending university, I have had chance to represent our province at the World Cheerleading Championships in Orlando, Florida, and have also had the opportunity to be a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders Cheer team.

Throughout my degree I have taken a variety of online courses, ultimately due to the amount of flexibility that they provide. By nature, I am a very busy person, and online courses have allowed me to complete schoolwork when it is convenient for me. This has enabled me to balance my part-time job, as well as being a teaching assistant, and continue cheerleading while taking a full course load every semester.

I began taking online courses during my first summer semesters as a way to get ahead in my program. Although I have almost completed my undergraduate degree, I have only been taking post-secondary courses for three years. I actually find myself looking forward to online summer courses, as it is a way to continue my studies in a relaxing setting, while still making the most of my summer. Thanks to online courses I have been able to complete a majority of my second major, sociology, without actually being physically present at the school.

Overall my experience with taking online courses has been very positive. The instructors make the online course feel similar to courses that are on campus, and I have found the workload to be consistent as well. I would recommend that any student looking for more flexibility in their schedule take an online course, or anyone looking for an improved school and work life balance.
