What is your name and degree program?

My name is Angela Jackson and I’m a Criminal Justice major.

Are you currently taking online classes?

Yes, I am. Two of them. Criminology as well as Race, Ethnicity and Criminal Justice.

How do you find your online experience?

I love it. I’m a single mother, and I’m employed full-time, so it’s very convenient to be able to balance everything.

Why did you decide to become an Owl?

I live here locally, and it just feels natural to go to a school close to home.

What advice do you have for future Owls considering online classes at FAU?

Professors give us a calendar of how things will go for the semester. I advise students to take advantage of that. Know what you need to do to plan ahead of time and always stay ahead so that you don’t fall behind.
