Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor:

I really enjoy the articles about how to incorporate student affairs in an online environment. I work at a College of Nursing at an Academic Health Science Center.

I really enjoy reading about examples of how other schools are working in good student/faculty contact in an online environment. Keep up the great work.
