I was in the middle of switching careers and choosing the right path was crucial. I [attended a personal interview with Anderson College]. The rest is history. Success is not just about accomplishing something, it is also about being at the right place at the right time, and most importantly, having acquired the right training from selfless … dedicated people. I am proud to be a product of Anderson College.
… I walked into Anderson one way and, just months later, walked out richer – professionally, personally, culturally and with new lifelong peers. I am grateful to Anderson College for being instrumental in my success!
