High cost of fuel means more students going online - GAYNELL BELLO, the weekly Vista

What do a mother of three who is passionate about forensic accounting, a father of two with a full-time job and concentration problems, and a young man who just graduated from high school have in common ? Enrollment in online college classes. Also called distance learning, enrollment continues to increase, mainly due to convenience and increasing gas prices. "I need the flexibility - it works around my schedule and my needs, rather than me trying to fit my schedule into theirs," said Bella Vista resident Angela Tingblad. "It's important to get what you want and not have to sacrifice everything to get it."
