I am an online student and have never been to the campus, so please disregard my ratings for the campus- I had no choice but to fill in the bubbles.

Anyway, my main problem with this school is how unmotivating it is for students who actually work hard. Everyone is a straight A student here. It does not matter if you leave an essay for the last moment, half-ass it, fake your references, and really throw it together- you will get an A as long as it is formatted correctly. It also does not matter if you can speak/write using proper English in the forums as longs as you post as often as required. I can't even tell you how many times I have logged on to answer discussion questions, only to become completely frustrated by the fact that the responses given by other students are complete jibber jabber text speak that is barely understandable. In many classes, you will be expected to "collaborate" with other students on a project. This is always a disaster, with most of the "team" refusing to do any work, one or two member being completely confused by the assignment itself (no matter how simple it is), and one or two students actually doing the work itself.

Oh, and if you are not Christian, or not devout- watch out. Every single course, the instructors post biblical verses, the students use the Bible to back up their opinions (on subjects that have NOTHING to do with religious belief), etc. Also, the require Christian Worldview class is so obnoxiously demeaning to anyone with non-Christian views. You will be chastised for your non-Christian beliefs and openly insulted.
