How has completing your Associate in Science degree at COA benefited you?

“Completing my A.S. at COA has helped me financially of course, probably beyond my current understanding. It has also allowed me to be part of an awesome community. An awesome community that has welcomed me, uplifted me, broadened my horizons, and has seen me through feats I would have never thought myself able of accomplishing just a few short years ago. COA has also taught me valuable lessons in networking, the necessity of taking notes, and how to handle college life before I am thrown in the deep end hours away from home. In all, completing my degree here at COA has given me the hardest, most rewarding, and truly best years of my life.”
