    "At CalSouthern, you are not alone. The University has very competent mentors that are readily available, quite helpful, and very supportive for online learners like us. In the same way, the University’s academic support team is equally available whenever help is needed, and our dean has personally demonstrated to me that he cares for his learners and is there to help you succeed."
