 The program supported me on so many levels. I was able to achieve short- and long-term goals. … Going to school part-time opened up so many doors because I was able to network throughout the week and participate in other community opportunities. When I graduated, I had over three job offers.

 [My professors] were very personable and made it a point to get to know me. They were always available to answer questions and help me outside of the classroom. They really made sure that we understood the material and went over examples with us in class to ensure that it stuck.

 My undergraduate degree gave me a great foundation. The master’s degree helped me go deeper. It showed me how I can use all the knowledge I gained in a practical way while picking up more advanced skills and understanding.
