EXPERIENCE LETTER AT AIU
It has been fun getting admission into AIU. I can recall writing my academic advisor Liliana Penaranda one day telling her that the best thing that has ever happened to me this year is my admission into AIU. I mean it, it is a landmark achievement for me.
Though brain tasking taking into account that students are often required to read online voluminous books, and some of these books are up to a thousand (1000) pages or more and summarize into a few pages of book publishing format with bibliography carefully arranged. At other times students may be required to make research in several voluminous online books just to write or publish an article of about fifteen to twenty pages or so. Indeed a lot efforts are required.
For me however, initially it was really challenging as a working class person but with time it proved to be enjoyable and fun.
Everyone, academic and non-academic staff of AIU is interested in new students. I must express my profound appreciation to Mr. Chris Soto, the admission counselor for his persuasive tactical approach in helping interested students to see that education at the platform of online study is attainable. Also, I am deeply grateful to my able academic advisor, Liliana Penaranda for her numerous telephone calls and emails trying to find out academic challenges I am facing. Those concerted efforts are highly commendable and encouraging which acted like what I may call academic immune booster to me.
I must also acknowledge the understanding efforts and reasonableness of the finance coordinator Rosie Perez who would not just advise the student services department to deny a student access simply because of a day or two in tuition delay. With utmost humility I acknowledge Dr. Jack for his careful grading of assignments and the entire staff and management of AIU. More importantly, I heartily thank God, the giver and sustainer of life and brain for comprehension of academic studies.
I hope to come back to you for my Masters in Public Health (MPH) and be rest assured that I will advertise, recommend and encourage my caliber of persons that I know and will come across to take up AIU online study.
