"As a veteran, I was able to enjoy the wealth of knowledge and real-world experiences offered by a very diverse and compassionate faculty. Each one, although specializing in their own field of study, in their own unique way brought forth a challenge, and in this, a call to action on my part. I was worried at first, enrolling into a university as an adult learner. This was for fear of oversized classrooms and getting lost in the crowd. This thought process was quickly squashed when I was able to find the schedule that worked for me in the classroom setting that I could not be more grateful for. There was a good mix of adult learners and traditional students who found themselves enjoying the same freedom and benefits the evening and more flexible classes offered. As far as getting lost in the crowd, this was just not possible. The professor-to-student ratio was ideal, with plenty of one-on-one time available."
