Dr. Stewart, Dr. Rust, Dr. Cao and Cassie Roemhildt were amazing. I feel like I was so well prepared for my career. I didn’t have to worry about not knowing things when I got my first job. I felt very confident. They connected me with job opportunities and wrote references for me and I know they’ll be there for me throughout my career. You just wouldn’t find that at a larger school.
