Nursing

When I first entered M State, I was unhappy with my life, working a job to make ends meet and dragged down with the responsibilities of being a single mother.

Associate of Arts - Liberal Arts and Sciences

I chose M State because I don’t learn well in bigger classrooms. I have a harder time asking for help when I can’t get the one-on-one help that I need from a teacher. I knew that being in smaller classrooms would help me not feel so overwhelmed. Plus it’s close to home!
