About Student Voices

Online education presents many unique challenges to students. How do I communicate with my instructor? How will I complete a group project when my classmates live in another state? What happens if my laptop crashes?

“Student Voices” is a blog from the Friday Center at UNC-Chapel Hill. This blog chronicles the journeys of several students as they navigate a semester online. It presents a variety of perspectives—full-time students, working adults going back to school to complete a degree, people taking courses for professional development—and shares their experiences in an honest, open, interactive format. We invite you to read and comment on these stories, and to ask questions you may have about studying through the Friday Center.
