"I currently work at a residential treatment facility for juvenile delinquents, which is the job I got right after graduating from Immaculata. Immaculata prepared me in many ways for the workforce. It provided the textbook knowledge I needed to excel in my field through a wide range of classes. There were topic-specific classes offered that allowed for me to explore my interest and find my passion. Immaculata also offered numerous internship opportunities that gave me practical experience. The program motivated me to challenge myself socially, which has allowed me to enhance my networking skills and advance in the real world. My favorite part about the program was how devoted the faculty was to each student’s success during and after the program."
