“A college education opens doors. I spent my entire life working on mechanical things, working outside in the elements, and I was ready for something more. The applied science program gives you direction and helps you figure out what’s next in your life and career.”

- Air Force Master Sergeant Douglas Fellows, program graduate

“In the program, we take an integrative learning course, and it will flip your thinking on your head in the best possible way. It stops you from choosing between two bad decisions and allows you to look for more options. The knowledge that you’re gaining just starts to overflow in wonderful ways into your regular life.”
