    Testimonials

    There are just so many great things to say about the teaching staff in the business program. I always think that they expect a lot from us, getting our homework done and being prepared for class discussion. But we, as students, expected a lot from them as well, being prepared to teach us everything we need to know. I feel the business department did a great job of holding up their end of the bargin.
