In today’s ever-changing world of technology, a decision many students face as they prepare to graduate from high school is whether to participate in the traditional undergraduate setting of actually living on a college campus or to take their courses online. Gardner-Webb University, one of the pioneers to offer courses online to adult learners through its GOAL (Greater Opportunities for Adult Learners) program, is well aware of both the convenience and the increasing offerings of online classes. However for undergraduates, a GWU experience that includes living on campus, being in a smaller classroom setting, and interacting face to face with fellow students and professors are elements that uphold the value of the institution.
