If you choose University of the Cumberlands, you will not be disappointed.

University of the Cumberlands initially made my list to consider based on the cost and the draw of online classes (helping me spend more time with my family). But as I researched the program and spoke to previous students, I was impressed by the quality of the education and the teaching. And it has not disappointed! It is a great schedule for someone who is working and has a family, and the coursework and teaching is thorough. I feel prepared for my field! ”
The University of the Cumberlands is a very small college in which you can form a real, quality relationship with your professors and peers. They care about your education, but also make you realize that your future is in your hands. Most of my classes were entertaining and kept me engaged.

My only problem was how small it was. I've always longed for the big city life, and there's not many activities around town without having to drive for a little while.
