Students share the value of online and hybrid learning at GVSU
“I'm a full-time student and I work full-time as well. I'm also a commuter student, so If I don't have to drive to Allendale or Grand Rapids, I'll save my gas and time. Taking hybrid and online courses allows me to have a more flexible school schedule around a strict work schedule. While sometimes I prefer an in-seat class, some of the classes I wanted and needed to take were not available at times that fit my schedule. Having online and hybrid courses allow me to still take what I want and need to take when it works for me.”
