"I took Chemistry 1, lecture and lab, during the summer ... as a visiting student from Slippery Rock University. Taking the courses at California University over the summer was not only convenient for me, since I lived close by, but also exceedingly helpful academically. The professors were eager to help us if we had questions and were willing to take the time so that the material was fully understood. The University's setup also made it easy for me to locate classrooms and find my way around campus. In addition, I believe I benefited from the smaller class sizes offered for summer courses because it presented students with more one-on-one time for individual questions they had for the professors."
