    I worked at American University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staff at AU is highly supportive of student ambitions. I commuted to campus in order to participate in master level courses. The staff and student leadership were also always willing to alert the student body of new career positions and higher educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Very few online courses were offered while I was attending AU.
