  • "I have to say it was such a smooth transition back into college. My friend and I attended one of the Adult Education Fairs. I was not sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to pursue a college degree. Once I was there, I learned about the organizational management program and I was hooked. Every step of the way was seamless. I had a follow up call about two weeks after the fair. I had a meeting set up within another two weeks and I applied a few months later. My adviser has been nothing but amazing and helpful. Deciding to go back to college at Viterbo has been the best choice of my adult career."
