Ross allowed me the flexibility to continue to be a stay at home mom while going back to school. Bettering myself for my family was my main motivation.

Prior to Ross, I had attended two other colleges trying to find a career that I would be passionate about. Once I came to Ross, I knew I had found the career that I will love. The instructors supported me every step of the way, as well as other staff members on campus. I am so glad I made the choice to continue my education at Ross. I am excited for my future and all the opportunities ahead of me!
