    "I was looking for the best accredited online colleges and stumbled upon this. Honestly, i'm not a fan of online learning becaus I don't think it's as interactive as the real thing. But I'm juggling A LOT right now, with the kids and such so I had to look for a more accessible way to get a degree. I've been going to Arizona state U for 3 months now and honeslty, i've never felt more in control of my life and my time! "

    "Umass is among the best online universities and a good investment in my part. Their online curricul;um is flexible enough for me to squeeze in some ME time and their faculty members helped me cultivate my conversational skills. I was usually timid and shy but now I can answer my phone without having a baby panic attack."

    "Some online university degrees are useless, I have taken an online photography class somewhere and it ended up being unusable 😤. So I took a marketing class in SNHU this time, and I can say it's better than the last online college I enrolled in. They have better profs and relatively more challenging assignments."

    "I think this isn't among the largest online universities since they have less program offers compared to others. So far, i'm not happy about my son enrolling in here. He started four weeks ago and said that he took an exam at 2am! I don't know about their policies but i don't think 2am is a good time for the brain."
