How is the OBUGS class on-campus? Sounds like you have to actually go to the school.

Oh! Hey, thanks for catching that. I thought I edited out that part about them being on campus. Oakland is close and the school looks pretty easy to get to via public transit. I definitely wouldn't count it out of my search, if I were looking.
