Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate coursework is the rigor of the classes and the positive learning environment. I am confident that I will have the ability to apply the theory learned in class with professionalism. The only con is the university location which is outside of the city. However I am willing to travel the distance.

The only con is trying to finance my education. Other than that task, my experience in the program is wonderful, and I enjoy every moment with my peers and instructors while learning.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the graduate program is that is caters to individuals who are employed full time. The advisors are very detailed and keep you on track with whatever track that you in. The networking with current technology is great for being able to access faculty, students, and the library. The also have a shuttle bus to transport you from the train station (even though I don't ride the train). The cons is that their are no graduate courses offer in the daytime or on Saturdays. I would love to see this happen.
