From one of our students I would like to submit my "personal" opinion about TU to you. This is my second semester at TU.  Prior to TU, I had only taken 1 class online. I was a little uneasy about taking a couple of years’ worth since I'm an older student and not very computerized; but, I am truly impressed with my instructors.  I know I made the right decision for my MLS degree. I have found all to be professional yet "very" willing to help a student.  Also, I feel I have a "great" program director as well in Professor Karen Burgess.

I hope this opinion makes you smile just a little bit more today.

Have a great day.

Kimberly W. Fanning, MLT(ASCP)
