Ansleigh Fisher – Student Highlight

Ansleigh Fisher is attending WVJC Online to pursue her Business Administration degree. She chose WVJC specifically because it offers the flexibility to complete her degree 100% online. She says, “Being a stay at home mother, I needed to be able to access all of my classes online.” She previously attended College of Central Florida, but now lives in West Virginia.

Ansleigh chose her program, Business Administration, because her goal at the end of her program is to own her own business and knew that the only way to reach her goal was to obtain a degree so she would have the knowledge to do so. “My favorite part about attending WVJC Online is that if I have an issue, I can email my professor and they email me back in a timely manner. The staff members that I have talked to since my journey began at WVJC have been professional and helpful,” says Ansleigh.

Shane Welter, Business Administration Program Director, and Dustin Blankenship, professor, stand out to her as being dedicated to making sure assignments are fully understood. They both want to see their students succeed in their classes. She says, “I would definitely refer a friend to attend WVJC because the staff and college are overall amazing. Classes are easily accessible because of Canvas, as well as professors are professional and ready to help you succeed in class to graduate.” Ansleigh says she would definitely refer a friend to WVJC Online because the staff is amazing!
