Vlog with Cindy Aitken
Senior Manager, Community Engagement at American Public University
Balancing your lifelong goals with your work and family responsibilities means exploring every possibility, and online education provides an ideal solution for thousands of working adults worldwide. And while you’re using your computer or mobile device to interact daily in the virtual classroom, the fact is, the online learning model and feeling like you’re part of a tangible community aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, when you join a quality online university, you become a part of a community of learners that may include your professor down the street to a classmate on the other side of the world.
At APU and AMU, there are a number of programs designed to keep students connected and engaged with their university community. In this vlog, Cindy shares her insights on the community events at the university, the Ambassador Program, university social channels, and she talks about school spirit in the online environment.
