What Students Are Saying

Keith Hudson, '15; photo courtesy of
"CSE gave me the flexibility of completing the bachelor's with online courses ... I had to go to a convention last September in Florida while I was still doing classwork. So I had my laptop and my notes and sat in my hotel room, looking at the ocean and doing my work. That kind of flexibility makes all the difference to an adult student."
– Detective Keith Hudson, '15
