TESC, Thomas Edison State College.

This is a distance learning school. I recommend this style of school to anyone who can learn with minimal or no personal instruction from a teacher. It's far cheaper, and I find it more challanging than when I went to a regular college (Glassboro State in NJ before it changed its name to Rowan University). The schedule is flexible and can fit a working lifestyle.

My major is Mechanical Engineering.
