What Our Students Say 

“I grew so much as a person. It helped me to develop personally, to gain confidence in my skills and abilities. I learned to speak in public while in college and have since addressed groups as large as 150 and on a regular basis groups of 35-50. I would not have the position that I have now without my degree.”

– Karen Reilly ’06 Product Manager, Continental Western Group
