"The class fulfilled one of my GEF requirements, and it also added some diversity to my transcript, which will be beneficial when I apply to veterinary school after I graduate in the spring of 2022. Because I took this class during Winter Intersession, my spring semester went much smoother."
"This was one of my best class experiences at WVU. I decided to take History 153 to lighten my load for the spring semester and so that I could graduate. The best part was that it was only 3 weeks and there were no exams."

"I had taken online classes at WVU before, but I had been so busy with work that I had not prioritized getting my bachelor’s degree. I wanted to do this, and I felt like a winter class would motivate me without dragging things out. I learned a lot more than I expected from the Introduction to Nutrition class that I took."
