The University has moved in the right direction by offering online classes to undergraduates, but it seems as if there are still some logistics that need to be worked out before this plan becomes ideal for all students.
Online classes have been offered in certain graduate programs at the University, but are now available for undergraduates. Freshmen were encouraged to take online classes such as the basic Christianity courses.
The changes to the University’s meal equivalency plan create more problems by solving others. In past years, students were able to use the meal equivalency plan at various on-campus locations. This semester brought a reversal: the Baugh Center is the only option for the use of the meal plan, and students are struggling to adjust to the new policy.
As the spring semester begins, the University faculty and staff are implementing new ideas to help bring progress and unity. Additions such as new degrees and the increased use of social media accounts by faculty, staff, current students and alumi are helping to draw the attention of prospective students while keeping current students connected.
