I am grateful to have been a part of Post’s Honors Program. The small class sizes and culturally enriched trips opens students up to a different side of learning.
I knew the second I got accepted that I wanted to attend Post. It was a great four years. I put a lot into my time there and I got a lot in return.
Going to school online and being in the military was a challenge, but I really appreciate all the faculty and staff here at Post University. They really helped me get through being a distant learning student.
