What are some factors I need to consider if I am a returning student interested in pursuing computer science degree?

I am an adult student, after years of being away from education I'd like to return and continue my education. I am also a first gen student. So, I am technically struggling to carve my path. I am interested in computer science. I am torn between online and on-campus education. I feel like online degrees will be more suitable for me. However, I am also looking for ways to not have a complete isolated learning experience or opportunities. What would be your best advice for this? Where can I start to understand the field? What are some factors I should look for in terms of quality of education in CS field? And any other comments or feedback are deeply appreciated.
