"If I can do this as a mature, adult learner, working full time, while starting down a totally different career path, so can you! All of my professors were wonderful. They genuinely cared about me and made sure I had the tools I needed to be successful. I felt supported and knew if I needed anything, there were people and resources always available to help and guide me."
