LAUREN ANDERSON: They made it clear that they wanted to be there to help you. Especially since it's not a normal classroom environment where I can just raise my hand if I have a question. I've got to send an email or send a little message through the school website. So that does make it a little more difficult.

But they were always there to say, look. If you have any questions, even if it's outside of the classroom. I had a lot of them say that. That just keep in touch. Or if you have a question with a different class and you're a confused please reach out to me. So they always felt very accommodating.

JOAN GAFFNEY: They outreach to students directly. They get involved in the online conversations. They help to drive those conversations forward. They encourage you to develop your communication skills.

And that's another area that's very important in an online program is your writing skills, to really craft your messaging and communicate clearly. And they challenge you in a way that, again, helps for you to build your skill level. And prepares you to take that next step forward in business.

CYNTHIA ORTIZ: Something that I've realized with the University of Scranton is that you're not alone. I was nervous about an online program I have always been the type of person to want to have my professor in front of me, and I was nervous at first because I didn't know how this online program was going to be.

But then I realized that communication was key. The professors are there to speak with you. If you have any issues, any concerns, they're willingness to talk to you as long as possible until you're satisfied. And that was really nice. I actually had a really nice experience with one of my professors.
