Going Back to School

Should You Earn Your College Degree Online or On-Campus?

Should I earn my degree online or on-campus?Decisions, decisions, decisions.

First, you have to decide whether or not to go back to college. (Yes.)

Then you gotta choose a college degree program to major in. (Check.)

Now you need to figure out if you should go into the classroom, enroll in an online degree program or some hybrid combination of both. (Read on.)

Here are 17 indicators to help inform your decision:

  1. Your idea of an easy commute is three steps or less to your laptop or computer. (Online.)
  1. Your friends make fun of your ridiculously organized, label-making life. (Online.)
  1. You believe variety, not necessity, is the mother of invention. (Hybrid.)
  1. Teams, crowds and the general public amp you up like highly caffeinated energy drinks. (On campus.)
  1. You live in PJs, sweats or yoga pants—many of which are unfit for public viewing. (Online.)
  1. People person? They coined the term for the likes of you. (On campus.)
  1. You epitomize the saying, “You’d be late for your own funeral” and require ultimate flexibility with your schedule. (Online.)
  1. The word “structure” thrills you rather than freaks you out. (On campus.)
  1. You crave variety and change like mini hamburgers on tiny steamed buns. (Hybrid.)
  1. You invented a TV remote that attaches to your body so you can avoid boredom at all costs. (Hybrid.)
  1. Your calendar is politely described as “chaotic.” (Online.)
  1. You refuse to identify yourself as a morning, noon or night person because you’re any or all of them at any given moment. (Online.)
  1. For you, no flexibility = no freedom. (Online.)
  1. If debating or consensus building were Olympic sports, you’d win the gold. (On campus.)
  1. Because you love the classroom so much, you secretly played “school” until you were 13—er, 15. (On campus.)
  1. You’re a “little of this, little of that” kind of person. (Hybrid.)
  1. Everything’s a shiny object of distraction for you. (On campus.)
