Former Student

The experience [in General Studies] was positive because my advisor helped guide me in the right direction. Someone else had confidence in me besides myself.

The information I received showed me many options for a career using my major(s). Mr. Sauter also helped me academically by assisting in and approving my class schedules. I received much support an encouragement personally from the general studies program.
