Unwavering support from faculty, staff and fellow classmates. Vibrant campus life and camaraderie. Flexible class options. Endless opportunity. This is what community looks like.

You’re getting a quality education. Even if you don’t know what you want to do, take a class to challenge yourself. You’ll be glad that you did.”

– Kendra, Early Childhood Education

I am saving roughly 1/3 of the tuition cost from my prior university. After housing costs and flights, I am spending 1/5 of what I was spending last year.
