          • Testimony
            1965-1985, Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), and Bachelors of Science

            I attended three institutions of higher education. I learned the most academically and about myself from the University of Maryland College Park. My professors for the most part were invested in my education and several were life long friends.

          • Testimony
            2005-2008, B.A, Economics

            I spent the most beautiful years of my life between the walls of this university. Wherever you look, you find motivations to learn, create, and dream. I do not know if I will have a chance to study again at UMD, but I will tell my children about it and encourage them to go there, because they will find the integrated experience that puts them on the path to success

          • Testimony
            1976-1980, Bachelor of Arts (BA)

            A kind of quiet, going-about-our-business academics that often leads the nation in achievement. A school unnoticed, probably because it puts more emphasis on student accomplish than sports. And a diploma that often carries as much weight as the Ivy Leagues. Want to truly learn? Try the school with the weird mascot.
