My Top Success Tip: My father gave me the best advice while I was pursuing my degree. He asked if I believed that people with degrees were smarter. I said not necessary, to which he agreed. He explained that getting a degree is not about being smarter than someone else. Obtaining a degree signals you have the perseverance to push through the inevitable obstacles. No matter who you are or what degree you are pursuing, you will face challenges that make you want to quit. You cannot quit. You must hold on and persevere. Once you do so, your degree signifies your accomplishment.

At Our Best For Our Students: As a Franklin University employee, one of the things I am most proud of is that we really offer a pathway to an accessible and affordable bachelor’s degree. When I was an undergraduate transfer student, I found the process confusing, expensive and time-consuming. I love that I am able to help community college students transfer to Franklin with a process that is easy, cost-effective and maximizes the credits they have earned.
