After obtaining several degrees from multiple colleges, I can officially say UC made it the least painful on a struggling single mother.
Michelle Lee, '21 Bryon, Ohio
I am proud to have completed my BSN at 22 — during a pandemic — and to being closer to reaching my goal of becoming a nurse practitioner. UC made it possible for me to work full time and complete my degree in three semesters.
