With the exploding growth of students taking classes online, we sent a survey out to some of our students asking why they prefer online education.
We specifically wanted to know why they chose online education with Everest. We also wanted to know what they thought of our online degree programs.
Students told us there were many reasons why they chose to attend Everest online classes. Some reasons include:
And even though these are all important factors for our students, they weren't the main reason why they completed their degree with us.
They chose Everest online education for a reason that we completely overlooked.
It's a reason that makes our online education stand out from other online degree programs - and it's something we never really advertised.
Students kept writing us over and over again about how much they appreciated our supportive staff and faculty.
You see, Everest is committed not only to academic excellence, but also making sure our students get the support they need. Our students aren't numbers; we consider each student as part of our online family.
And, as part of our online family, we work hard to create an online environment that each student will feel comfortable in.
We support our students every step of the way - from getting their computer set up to helping them throughout their online degree program.
Our commitment to our students has drawn more and more students to our school. And our student enrollment continues to climb because of the recommendations of our students.
To give you an idea of how we support our students, we'd like to share with you a personal note we received from Rhonda Purcell - one of our graduates:
"I'm a single parent who had to work fulltime while attending school. There were times when I wanted to give up, but I had the help and concern of all staff members to get me through the rough times. I feel like while I was in attendance, I had an extended family that was there for me to answer my questions or concerns.
In today's times education is a very important part of one's life, and I want to thank all the staff members and faculty for realizing this and helping me achieve one of my goals." Rhonda Purcell Graduated 2004
We also recently received an email from one of our past students, Dr. Drake Perry:
"Everyone was friendly and helpful. The professors really cared, and the work was practical and challenging. When I finished a class, I felt great accomplishment. I didn't have the time to attend a traditional college, and I didn't want to waste time with all the distractions you have to put up with on campus." Dr. Drake Perry Graduated 2005
And then Stacy sent us this enthusiastic note:
"I would like to say that the experience I had while finishing my degree online was incredible. I got to meet a lot of people all over the United States, including great professors. I learned a lot from my classes. I actually felt like I was in a classroom." Stacy M. Allen Graduated 2003
The common thread here is that Rhonda, Drake, and Stacy all stressed the importance of our supportive faculty and staff.
And that's really a huge reason that motivated them to continue one of our online education programs.
They felt part of a close-knit online community, which is exactly what we try to achieve with our online classes.
We want each of our students to feel supported in every way possible, so that they will have a personal enriching experience as they earn their online degree.
So here are some of the ways we support our students:
We're proud of our online education, and we think you'll enjoy our supportive atmosphere.
