Another example of why our online programs work for our students

It was a pleasure meeting with UIS supporters and alums for a couple of days in Phoenix this last week. Among them was Ed Carr. Ed is an executive with the Boeing Corporation in Phoenix (where they make the Apache helicopter) and is an online UIS student in our M.A. in Legal Studies Program. A busy dad with two active kids; Ed has found both the convenience and academic excellence of the UIS online program to be exactly what he was looking for. It's going to be a pleasure to shake Ed's hand when he participates in the May 2013 commencement ceremony. He has already decided to be there in person so that he can meet his professors and fellow students face-to-face.
