Student Focus

We love to hear why our students enjoy taking online classes! Send us an email at distanceed@wcupa.edu that tells us why you enjoy learning online; you could be featured in our next newsletter or on our social media sites!

Laura Raffaele

Laura Raffaele is a Masters student pursuing her degree in Music Education Violin Performance at West Chester University. She shared why she chose online learning at West Chester. She states, “As a full time Instrumental Strings teacher in the North Penn School District, furthering my education is important to me and my students. Taking online courses allows me to devote my time evenly between my education and the education of my students. In the Fall of 2016, I took a Music Education course online which allowed me to complete my school work at my own pace and I was able to ask my professor any questions at any time. It is great that West Chester offers online courses that can accommodate for any student’s busy schedule!”
