What are some of your memorable experiences in college? Professor George Hall and Dr. Kim Capriotti have left me with a lasting memory of a faculty that is truly engaged in helping students learn. In my 2 1/2 years on campus, I can honestly say all my professors were great, but these two really stand out.

Tell us about JU’s role in your transition to civilian life. The offerings JU has in the Accelerated Degree Program helped make the transition smooth. Being in an environment with other professionals with a desire to continue their education after already being successful in their careers was great to be a part of. JU’s ability to offer this style of learning was instrumental in my educational success.

What sets JU apart? From the moment I set foot on campus, every member of the staff and faculty has been helpful in guiding my transition from military training to civilian-style education. I am grateful for their patience and guidance.
