My motivation for pursuing a degree is both a personal and professional goal. I have raised my family and decided it was my turn to do something that I wanted.

Why did you choose Averett University’s Graduate & Professional Studies program?

I chose the Averett GPS program because of my work schedule. When a representative came to my job over 3 years ago, I was excited to have found something that would work well with my busy life. The GPS program works well with having personal and professional plans. I can submit work early or work from different locations.
