WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING

Levino Johnson
Class of 2016
“In the military, you’re basically a public servant for the nation. I learned at UCCS what it means to be a public servant,” Levino said, giving advice to anybody who thinks college is an insurmountable challenge. “Dig deep. You have to find that fire in your stomach. Grab onto whatever you have there and use it to pull yourself through.”
Levino Johnson overcame with grit and determination. He’s now forging a path as a public servant.
After serving for 12 years in the Army, Levino Johnson wanted to continue his path as a public servant. He found UCCS taught him all the skills he needed to be confident in the field.
