I really enjoyed the courses taught by my advisor. She was engaging and tried to make things as relevant to us and real world work needs as possible. However, some of the other professors I have encountered seem to be less interested in making the courses relevant and user friendly. Communication is a struggle with not only professors but also with Financial Aid, Student Accounts and other departments. If this school didn't have one of the more time and cost effective (used this term losely) certificate programs I would not have chosen it.

Be Known is not an empty promise, it is something professors and other staff make good on every day. If you don't want to get lost in a crowd of thousands, and want to be called by name instead of your ID number, George Fox is the place for you.
