Why did you choose the UNI/DMACC/Carroll 2+2 program?
The proximity of the campus proved beneficial to me and, although I drove 60 miles a day round trip, I never missed a day of class.
How has the program helped you professionally?
I quit my job at a law firm and worked in the DMACC/Carroll financial aid office to help supplement my decision to go back to school. If it were not for the UNI/DMACC 2+2 program, I would not be pursuing a lifelong desire to be a teacher. I am only sorry that I waited so long before taking advantage of this opportunity.
What opportunities did 2+2 open for you?
I had a career, but I always wanted to teach. The faculties from both institutions are student centered and accepting of both traditional and non-traditional students.
