I would say what I enjoyed the most about Ross was the convenience of doing everything online. Not having to worry so much about scheduling my home, work, and school life. I could get up early in the morning or stay up late and still access my studies and do my homework.Kellie Smith Graduate Medical Billing Administrative Specialist student at Ross College Online campus Graduation: November 28, 2018
