You will meet such great friends. The program is intense, but manageable. The professors are extremely knowledgeable, fun, and professional. The best thing is that SAU and Dr. Robert Woods has an excellent class geared to help the most seasoned online student or first-time online student to succeed in earning the degree. I can't say enough great things about it.

I loved the community atmosphere that the discussions fostered, and I loved the interesting mix of business-standard books that gave practical applications for specific issues I deal with every day and the spiritually focused books that helped me grow in my faith as I was expanding my knowledge of communications.
