Alumni Testimonial

Graduating early allowed me to pursue my professional goals earlier, and to save money on a full year of tuition. And, I still had time during my three years to complete an internship, work on campus, and stay involved with my friends and student actvities. I am so glad that I was able to work with my advisor to graduate early in three years.
