          • Testimony
            1983-1987, Bachelor of Science

            The ASC commitment to integrity in all aspects of life--classroom, residence hall, social sphere--helped me build core values that have guided me throughout my career and relationships. I am grateful to my fellow Scotties and the faculty and administration for their commitment to the student led and administered Code.

          • Testimony
            1996-2000, Bachelor of Arts

            My ASC education opened up a lot of doors for me. I had many options including graduate school, medical school, and public health school. I chose graduate school and today work as a biomedical engineer. Don't let the "liberal arts" fool you--you can go on to do anything with an education from ASC.
