'The curriculum and the professors and the way things were presented to me here at Saint Francis really prepared me for the workload that I was going to need in to the real world. The emphasis put on deadlines and getting projects done as they needed to be done was emphasized to me by my professors, and this has really carried on into the professional world.'

-Amber Warnick, Communications Graduate

'I teach 26 nine-year-olds every day and not every learner is the same, so I look at them as individuals. When I treat them on an individual level, it matters to them. The university treated me the same way. They treated me like an individual, with my own story. I wasn't just a number, and when I teach I carry that on with me.'

-Nadzara Sakinovic, Elementary Education Graduate

'My master's degree has helped me professionally through the attainment of my current role. The knowledge built and knowledge gained through my experiences was the foundation and background that allowed me to move into the career that I have. Without Saint Francis I would not be doing what I'm doing now.
