"“I think furthering yourself through education is the best way to get forward in life and coming here set a solid foundation for me to build upon. The class sizes were smaller so it allowed for more one-on-one instruction with your professor. That I think made all the difference for me.”
— Tyler Turner ’19, Associate in Science in Business Administration
