Going to Ross was the best decision I have made for myself. I never really liked school, but they helped me build confidence and reach goals I wasn't aware I was capable of. They helped me every step of the way to find the career of my dreams. To me, Ross isn't a school; they're a family. Anyone who is considering Ross as a school should go for it. I guarantee you won't regret it.

I like Ross for many reasons! Ross has given me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and further my career. Due to what Ross has taught me, when I leave here I will be able to seek employment in the medical field, allowing me to help provide for my family. One of the best things about Ross is the incredible instructors! The teachers genuinely care about your success and work hard to help you accomplish your goals. Fellow students have also been unendingly supportive and helpful. While at Ross I have bettered myself, opened myself up to new opportunities, and made life-long friendships. If you're looking for the next step in your life, Ross could be it!

I thank Ross for everything that they have done, from the first time I stepped foot on their campus. I was so afraid, but not so much of starting school, but afraid of failure. That was my biggest fear until talking with one of the school's administrators. She made me feel so comfortable in becoming a student at Ross. Once I started and met my teachers it became so easy. They took time out to help me when I didn't understand things, which made it that much easier. Once I got to my externship I was so excited yet afraid at the same time. However, where they sent me for my externship is where I wanted to go and upon completion, I am very proud to say that I got hired and I am still working there to this day! Ross helped me with my career so much that I enrolled in the online school for Ross and received my associates degree. It was hard being a full-time mom, employee, and student, but I did it and so can you, thanks to Ross and its amazing team!
