Why did you choose to attend UT Tyler?
The location is close to my work and I am utilizing my employer's Tuition Reimbursement Program to enhance my knowledge and better myself as a professional within my field.
What are your career goals and how does your graduate program support them?
I intend on retiring from my department within 10 years and begin teaching at a collegiate level.
What do you like most about UT Tyler?
I find that the communication between my professors and me has been simple and quick. The professors are approachable and helpful, which makes succeeding in this program exceptional. Working over 60 hours a week and maintaining a family, has limited me from social involvement at the university. Although at times I feel like an outsider because I am a non-traditional student, the university makes many efforts to correspond via email and notices to provide constant updates on activities and functions.
