Student at Brescia University Online

“I enrolled in Brescia University online after taking many years off of school. I was worried about going back to school, and had heard online college courses and professors could be difficult. All of my worries were put to ease once I attended my first class. The classes are easy to access, and all the assignments are clearly laid out in advance. The professors are great, they are knowledgeable and have to teach a lot of information, but are fair about expectations. I can even interact with the professor and other students in chat during class. I am really enjoying the entire setup of BUonline.”
