    I actually had a counselor that would call me, just to see how I was doing in school. Was there any additional assistance that I needed? To me that was showing me that they have value in what I’m doing.

    I’m over the moon that their staff made it so easy, and I learned so much that I could apply to my work right now. I improved myself in leadership competencies and it’s made me a much better leader for the Department of the Navy.

    The fact that Brandman University* was a not-for-profit school, really sealed the deal for me. I wanted to be able to attend a college, where I knew that my money, my tuition, was being used for the school and not being paid to the shareholders.

    Each instructor led me to believe, by providing knowledge and resources, that I was capable of making positive impacts in the lives of people.
