Bellevue University Tops U.S. News Rankings

After deciding what my major was, I did a lot of research online. Bellevue University seemed to offer a respectable program that didn't fall into your typical "online degree" category. Bellevue University's program was affordable, intense, fast-paced and very rewarding. I'm glad I did it.
