            1986-1990, Bachelor of Arts

            MCLA works to create a culture of learning based on regular life situations. It's not a big fancy school, the focus is on value in the learning activities so students can create value for themselves and their future employers.

          • Testimony
            1981-1983, Bachelor of Science

            Most of the Computer Science professors came from industry rather than from pure academia. Looked at some larger schools and felt I would be a number and never felt like a number here.

          • Testimony
