“You cannot beat online college as a way of continuing your education when you are in the military. There are no issues with having to order textbooks, as all course material is online. Sessions College has opened my eyes to online college and as a Non-Commissioned Officer I let my soldiers know that not all colleges have to be in a classroom. I show them that with determination and dedication you can accomplish anything.” Chris Deprater
