Why did you choose the UNI/DMACC/Carroll 2+2 program?
I always dreamed of teaching but I grew up in the Carroll area and was not able to pull myself away from friends or family to attend a university away from home. The program offered flexibility and a quality education without having to travel to another university.
How has the program helped you professionally?
Besides the quality education I received, having the program offered in Carroll allowed many of us the chance to have our dream come true. Plus, I am not limited to a job in one area or do I need to move to find a job.
What opportunities did 2+2 open for you?
I have had the opportunity to meet a group of extraordinary people, including my instructors as well as my fellow classmates. It has also allowed me to grow personally by improving my self-confidence and opening the door to financial stability.
