Strayer Education is an education service company whose primary asset is Strayer University, a 50,000-student, 94-campus, post-secondary education institution founded in 1892, which offers bachelors, masters and associates degrees in Business Administration, Accounting, Computer Science, Public Administration and Education. Unlike traditional universities, Strayer University students are working adults, who are returning to college and graduate school to further their careers and improve their lives. Our revenue comes from tuition payments and associated fees. Approximately 75% of that revenue comes to us from Federal Title IV loans issued to our students. Our expenses at Strayer Education include the cost of our University's professors, our admissions and administrative staff, marketing expenses and facilities and supplies costs. We serve students in 23 states through physical campuses, as well as in all 50 states and over 30 foreign countries through our online courses. Strayer University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Mark, do you want to run them through financials?
