This degree has already started to open doors for me that otherwise would have been closed. Personally, I became confident in transferring my knowledge and expertise. Professionally, it has allowed me to improve my management skills while opening my eyes to new concepts and ideas. The best parts of attending the Adult College Completion program are its flexibility and the support received from faculty and staff. The learning is shared; students have workforce experiences that are shared and can benefit others in their own jobs. You also get to know your classmates well, making the learning experience more fun.
