I took two online classes at St. John’s this summer and especially enjoyed the financial management course. It was exceptionally organized, from class work to weekly quizzes.  The instructor made herself available for any questions or concerns, and even offered Skype sessions with students.  As a married mother who works full time, I found distance learning an ideal option. I appreciated the convenience of being able to access the course materials, lectures, assignments, and tests in the convenience of my own home."
