    Not that it matters for DL but there are two campuses, Johnson and Lyndon. As Chris said, two small schools merged to make two small schools with the same name. It’s a little strange because the two campuses are not that close together. You wouldn’t want to live on one and take classes at the other. It’s a nice little state college. And Katie Ebner is a good young soccer coach.

    They're only about an hour apart. That's inconvenient, but not unmanageable, especially since people up there are probably used to it.

    Thanks - I was thinking more for DL. I'm thinking about pursuing another somewhat generic Master's, maybe next year- and "Leadership Studies" seems to be a pretty generic program, and this one is offered in a kind of modular presentation that you can take in any order that you want.
    I can probably get tuition reimbursement from my employer, but the price per credit hour for online seems to be reduced to make it very reasonable (there is a limit to what my employer will cover). Has anyone had any experience with the institution itself or that particular program? I'm curious about the reputation of the school, etc.

    I know that some schools are kind of "hidden gems" in the sense that the same schools come up time and time again on internet searches, and in this forum, but there are lots and lots of small schools that offer DL programs that you would just never find under normal searching circumstances. My M.S. was like that - I found Anderson University (SC) by complete accident after following lots of regional searching rabbit holes, lol.

    Most programs are offered on both campuses and so it's unusual for students to go back and forth between campuses. It's common for people to never go to the other campus.

    Oh, I should have been clearer. I just meant that people who live in the North up there (like my Mom's relatives) are accustomed to a long drive to get where they need to go.

    I think that's generally true. I drive 30 minutes just to get to the supermarket. There's nothing much in these little towns except homes.

    I used to live near Lyndon State. My kids went to Lyndon Institute for high school which is literally just down the street. A small college, it has a good reputation locally for the quality of their meteorology program. Never heard anything bad about it, for whatever that's worth.
