The regular campus and satellite campuses cater to working adults with many evening and weekend courses. Online courses are also geared to working adults which means the students are already working (usually) and/or have a career in mind before enrolling. Professors are usually accommodating toward the work demands and adapt curriculum to tie directly to related work.
