I love the College of Business and all of the faculty and staff for encouraging and supporting my dreams and goals. I also appreciate the diligence of our advisors in finding opportunities for students to expand our practical knowledge.
The work ethic I developed at Austin Peay allowed me to compete with (my law school classmates). I feel like Austin Peay prepared me to go to the next level, and without the huge burden of debt some of my classmates had.
I am 100 percent confident that my professors are committed to ensuring students not only graduate, but also have the opportunity to succeed beyond the classroom.
