The Miller-Motte campus has around 600 students, with an additional 2,500 that take online courses. 

"What's special I think are the people. Our faculty and staff, the relationships that you form with them, and our graduates," said Joe Kennedy with Miller-Motte. "Seeing the students who come here a little unsure of themselves when they get here, but feeling more and more confident as they stay, and more confident when they get out in the world of work." 

Miller-Motte has a total of 17 campuses around the region, and offers classes in cosmetology, business, law, and more. 

"I think it serves a need, a population that typically doesn't go to a traditional college," said Ned Snyder, president of Delta Online Operations. "I think we do a really good job of serving that population."
