My CalSouthern Experience

Before enrolling, I had heard that instructors at online universities were often unresponsive. But at CalSouthern, I found my faculty mentors to be even more responsive than the professors in my prior degree programs—and these were at traditional, campus-based schools. My CalSouthern faculty mentors were really invested in their students and ready to reach out and help them. Also, the flexibility CalSouthern provides is great for military learners, whose schedules can always change at a moment’s notice.
