"I made the best decision for my future when I decided to complete my undergraduate/graduate degree at 体育菠菜大平台. Although I knew I had the potential to be successful, my professors encouraged me to go outside my comfort zone which has allowed me to become a better student, researcher, and professional. The relationships that professors and students have here at 体育菠菜大平台 is something I will never take for granted as they truly want to see you succeed. If I had to go back, I would make the same decision over and over again as I am proud to be a part of the Communication Disorders’ Department here at 体育菠菜大平台."
