Education Quote

Coming to college 30 years after high school graduation is a daunting venture, one that can seem overwhelming. ASU-Newport was the perfect place for me to start my experience. After being in the program for a few months, my fear was replaced with excitement for the future.  The faculty gave me the confidence I needed to continue.  Now I am just a few weeks away from graduation and the future of my dreams.
