It is an exciting time of the year when we have thousands of our students travel to Lynchburg and to Liberty University to take intensives. For those who don't know about our intensives, it is when students complete a course in one, very intense week. They sit and participate in class from 8-4:30. And then they do the assignments for the class in the evening. Some of our very brave students come and do three weeks of this in a row. Below is a picture of this weeks group at our Monday luncheon following our SOE Orientation. They are listening to a welcome from the Provost of Liberty University.
I love this time. Because it is an opportunity to see our students that are all over the states and the world. In the intensives that I am teaching in July, I have students from China and Afghanistan and other interesting places. It is an incredible privilege to be part of this phenomena.
And as if this isn't enough, Liberty's SOE was also ranked number 7 among the Top 10 Online Colleges for Teacher Education - (http://www.thebestcolleges.org/2010/the-top-10-online-colleges-for-teaching-degrees/). I really do just love this place! :)
