Student Testimonial - Ashley

"The hybrid course I just finished, along with the one that I took last term, have better helped me understand how to use computers.  The option to use Office 365 has helped me because I do not have Microsoft Word at home.  I was able to work on things at home, including my ISU. I appreciate the option to do a hybrid course because a lot of people going to DCE have children that aren't quite in school yet, so the opportunity to stay home and work on homework is nice and it meant that I wasn't losing a day away from my studies."
