"The program appealed to me because the nearest university is hours from my rural Kansas home. I was able to work on my degree and continue to farm at the same time.

Now that I have my degree, I'm an adjunct professor at the local junior college and I love every minute of it! I am grateful to UB for the quality education that made my new job possible.

I will admit, the classes were challenging, but who would have it any other way? It's this attention to detail that made the degree worth it in the first place.

The people in my area tend to be deeply religious. I've always thought that I have a liberal point of view, but the critical thinking classes showed me that I had been more influenced by the religious mindset than I had presumed myself to be. I can honestly say that I am a different person now than I was two years ago."
