How HPU helped you get there: “One of the most beneficial ways HPU prepared me for the work world was by having professors with real-world knowledge and experience.”
Most impactful professor at HPU: “Dr. David Little was one of those professors that brought real-world knowledge and experience into the classroom. Through his experience, he was able to introduce real-world situations. Then, by challenging us students to come up with our own solutions, we were able to implement what we learned into real-world situations. By coming up with my own solutions, I feel that I retained and learned the information better than I had in any other class. Also, Dr. Little took a genuine interest in not only ensuring students had the tools to be successful in his course, but also in our post-college endeavors. Through offering constant help inside and outside the classroom, it was evident Dr. Little wanted to see his students succeed.”
Most impactful moment at HPU: “At the end of college, it is easy to forget about how much you’ve changed since freshman year. Graduation day was a time for me to reflect on my positive experience at HPU and to see how much I’ve changed and learned over the years. Between studying abroad and the academic and social experiences, HPU played a vital role in affecting where I am today.”
