"I think it will be wonderful to offer classes online. I wish this was available when I attended. With two kids at home, it would have helped me manage my family and school responsibilities. I can’t help but imagine that this will help many non-traditional students get their degrees."

- Wendy Seitz, USI BUAD Graduate, 1999
