"After transitioning out of the Navy I was in search of a university that was both military friendly as well as (and most importantly) respected in the community, I found both at Park. From the first time I stepped on campus and told the admissions rep that I planned on using my Post 9/11 GIBILL i was treated with the respect that comes with being a veteran of two wars. The Warrior Center they have on campus is the beacon of all things military friendly, the staff is made up of current military members and veterans. The space is filled with "like minded people" that have shared many of the same experiences and have an intimate working knowledge of both the VA as well as TA. There was always coffee made and an open computer to study at. They do all the little things right, they speak the language, they have several instructors that are veterans (some come highly decorated). They read off the names of the fallen over veterans week, yes i said week. they do not celebrate veterans day, rather 5 of them. I also took online classes through them and had a wonderful experience that way as well. the technology worked correctly and the teachers were prompt with responses. Overall i think other institutions have a lot to learn from Park and the way they carry themselves, not to serious with but with a thousand yard stare, they have IT together."

"As an active duty Soldier who deployed several time while pursuing my degree, I have very few problems with attaining my degree. The problems I did have were resolved quickly. Many of the professors are adjunct professors where most cared about their students but a few did not. I truly enjoyed my experience with Park University and would definitely recommend them to other potential students. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous, and willing to do everything they could to help you accomplish your goals."

"I recently completed my B.S. in Management Computer/Information Systems with Park University and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed studying with this institution. I have never been to the main campus in Parkville as I completed my degree almost entirely online, but I do not think that the online experience took anything away from my education, in fact I think I may have learned more through online classes compared to past in-the-classroom experiences. Initially, I was very nervous about taking courses online, but soon found that it was the right method for me. The mobility of online classes are great, but the thing with Park is that you are required to be in one place at a certain time once each semester for a proctored final exam. While this sometimes became problematic with my current career in the military, I think the proctored exam policy that they implement keeps a higher level of legitimacy compared to other institutions that offer degrees online. Like any school (online or face-to-face) you will have good teachers, bad teachers, ambitious classmates, and slackers at Park, but in the end you will get out of it what you put into it. Great school, low cost, and would recommend to anyone looking to pursue an undergrad. -PK"

"I enjoyed the online experience for the most part of classes I took. I enjoyed doing the week courses at my own pace and asking questions online in a discussion type format. I did not have many interactions with students or the professor other than having to submit response to other individuals. I preferred to get in and get stuff done on time but I hated how I would scramble at the last minute to complete things. I feel that a new career is actually how you do at a job and what you learn about the specific systems your career uses. I feel college only helped in little things and that if your career had specialized training prior to working it would be more attuned to what you will be doing in your new career."
