One of the major pitfalls of pursuing a degree online is that we do not get to socially engage with other students. Being an online student can feel isolating. Yes, we have “discussions” but it is not the same as students at a brick and mortar school; we do not have the physical proximity to other learners sitting in a classroom. The lack of causal connection with other students at an online school can make you feel alone.
