What students are saying about the program

“Thank you for recognizing that the needs of returning students are somewhat different from students just entering the college. As an adult who returned to school after a forty-eight year absence, I am enjoying the Organizational Leadership program. “
“I know in order to move forward, I need a bachelor's degree. Working full-time and being a parent, I need the nontraditional scheduling made available with this new degree. I'm pretty close, and now it's possible.”
“I look forward to our class every week, because I know we will learn something new and have our preconceptions about leadership challenged.”
