I have been living in Memphis for 21 years. I know almost everything about this nice college. Two former Memphis mayors are alumni of the college. Best college among HBCU. I have seen falling high school students whose life were totally changed after receiving their bachelor degree from LeMoyne-owen college. Education is the Best investment for your money.
My online learning was a great experience, because I had teachers who cared, and wanted me to succeeded. They were available when I needed them. I could use there help outside of school hours.
