Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I wouldn't have gone to any other school for the quality of education and the experience.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The pro of attending a private school is the advantage of small classrooms and more one-on-one attention from professors. This increases the quality of education because it allows for more opportunities to ask questions. The con to a small private school is definitely the cost and lack of financial aid.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

While the various regional centers make obtaining an education more convenient and accessible, the cost of attendance and the living expenses in the surrounding areas can hinder one's ability to succeed. There is limited financial aid in terms of grants and scholarships offered to graduate students unlike other private institutions and state schools in the area. Faculty are kind and available for their students, and they are also experts in their fields who can draw from various real-world experiences to add to the classroom learning.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

I'm excited to attend a Christian Private university that has great professors, staff and faculty. All the individuals that I have encountered have been very helpful in my journey in starting grad school. However, the cons of the program is that it is a very expensive investment as far as my future is concerned and I cant do it alone but I do believe in the end I will graduate with the skills that I need from this program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The cons of this graduate program is that there is no financial aid besides student loans available through the school. There are many pros including the quality and level of faculty attention, peer interaction, support towards job security after graduation, and quality of therapists that come out of this program is superior to the rest of the counseling programs in the area.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The Pros: I've spent the last three years of my life studying clinical psychology under some of the best professors I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. They are smart, skilled professionals who are willing to go above and beyond for their students. The quality of my learning has been invaluable. Regardless of the cost, the past three years have shaped me into the clinician and the human I never dreamt I could be. The Cons: The cost. I had a budget for paying over the course of three years but life happened - I got sick and that took a chunk of that budget along with the cost of tuition rising each year. Now, I'm in my fourth year and hoping for a little relief!

Faculty is very helpful and attentive. The small cohorts make it easier to have a better network with people that are in the field.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

The pros of my graduate program are that there is a lot of growth opportunities. Job search is not as challenging and everyone I know who has completed the program has successfully found their dream jobs and passion. The cons to my program is that it take 4 years to complete the program if you go to school full time. Another pro is that the environment you are in while in school really helps you focus and trust the faculty with any challenge you may have while going through the program. A God-centered environment has allowed me to open my heart to not only the people around me but be able to show my passion through my field work.
