How did the SAHE master's degree program contribute to your success in higher education?

The SAHE master's degree program provided both the educational quality I was looking for with the connections and networking with the UCCS campus. I was informed of important opportunities such as graduate scholarships, fairs and seminars, and graduate student job opportunities that ultimately led to me becoming employed by UCCS.

Why was the UCCS SAHE program the best choice for your master's degree?

The quality of the education that I received showed me the tricks, tools, and resources that I continue to use as a student affairs professional today. The instructors are friendly, personable, and provided guidance and encouragement throughout the program.  I felt that they genuinely cared about me and my future success. The networking with instructors and other classmates was, and continues to be, invaluable. This program really changed the course of my life for the better, and I wouldn't change any part of it. The SAHE master's program was the absolutely best choice I could have made, and instrumental in me accomplishing my dreams of becoming a UCCS staff member.
