The on-campus delivery for the National Defense course was not a new model. However, this was the first time VLU had applied this teaching model. The new methods offer not only convenience for students but also better management for the University itself. Military semester always promises wonderful and unique experience helping the students to promote their manners, teamwork skills, and disciplines.
