I would say what I enjoyed the most about Ross was the convenience of doing everything online. Not having to worry so much about scheduling my home, work, and school life. I could get up early in the morning or stay up late and still access my studies and do my homework.

Being at Ross has completely changed my life. I had just had my son and knew I had to figure out what I wanted to do. My first day at Ross, I knew I wanted to be here. I am so happy I made the leap to be here and am so close to being on the career path I am meant to be on.
