“The location, time, facilities, instructor, WUSTL staff are excellent for those needing professional courses. I liked the hard copies of the books which were the slides discussed during the lecture and the hands-on computer lab exercises. The instructor had a good sense of humor and kept our interest, and provided appropriate breaks. He answered questions relevant and had excellent real world experience. The available beverages and snacks were very much appreciated when there's not much time during lecture to find a vending machine. Overall, this is the best vacation I've had in years (yes, sitting in class all week and learning new material really is my definition of fun!)” Fall 2017 Participant
