College Your Way! Learn Online

“Online learning makes it easy to go to school because it doesn’t interfere with your life.”

“Just do it!” says Jessica Harder to anyone who is unsure about taking a college course online.

The Castle Rock native began attending Lower Columbia College during her senior year in high school. For many classes, she attended lectures in an LCC classroom but went online to access materials and to complete her assignments. Those hybrid courses made the switch to fully online classes a seamless process.

Before finishing her degree program at LCC, Jessica had an opportunity to move to Hawaii. Thanks to the Associate in Applied Science in Business Management online option, the move did not mean starting over at a new college.

“Whenever I had questions, my instructors were always willing to help me without making me feel like I was an inconvenience,” Jessica said. She was even able to participate in group projects with her classmates.

Not only did Jessica earn her degree, she was honored as the 2013 Outstanding Student of the Year in Business. “My degree will open a lot of doors for me,” she says.

Instructor Tim Allwine, who created the online business program, said many of his students choose the online option in order to schedule college classes around work and family obligations. Anyone who has used a Smart phone or made a purchase over the Internet has the computer skills to take his online business courses, Allwine says. “It’s that simple.”

Jessica’s next planned route on the virtual highway is to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Business Management this fall through Western Governor’s University, an online college which offers direct transfer to graduates of LCC.
