Janice EdwardsIn addition to the flexible learning environment and knowledgeable faculty, another benefit that’s been a pleasant and unexpected surprise are the meaningful connections I have made with other students from all over the country. Not only have I had the opportunity to learn from their distinct experiences and individual perspectives related to development, but there are classmates that I now consider to be friends and have even had the privilege of meeting in person.
