''I was motivated to participate in online learning because I switched my major as a sophomore and declared a minor as a junior, so I needed to fulfill several additional credits in order to graduate on time. I dedicated three to five hours to each online class per week. I appreciated that the syllabus for each class provided detailed information on assignments, including their due dates, so that I could plan accordingly. The online learning experience has been a successful one for me.''

- Ashley Evans

''St. John's University's online courses provide a stimulating environment where you're able to take control of how you learn. As a current junior studying computer security, I have taken four unique online courses. These classes have improved my ability to conduct research, communicate with my peers through a virtual environment, and explore the ways I learn best. Every professor has been supportive in providing constructive feedback and timely e-mail responses. They really engage students in collaborative discussions.''

- Layal Elaraby

''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.''
