Student Testimony

My name is Mariya Makarenko and I am currently a senior in the Health Care Management program. As a freshman, I felt lost and confused as to what classes I needed to take and the road to graduation seemed very far away. With the help of my advisor, I was able to pick out the exact classes I needed for my degree. After each semester, the satisfaction of crossing out each course I successfully completed pushed me closer to my graduation date. Without the help of an advisor I probably would not have moved so quickly and efficiently through my degree. I encourage all students to schedule an advising appointment because it will save you time and money. Before you know it, you will be in your senior year too!
