I have wanted to become a paralegal for some time, but due the challenges that come with everyday life, I had to delay this dream until I discovered Herzing. A university that is committed to student success was exactly what I needed to achieve my educational goals.
While earning my degree, I was employed full-time and I was also a therapeutic foster parent, so my schedule was always busy. I overcame this challenge with support from my professors and rest of the faculty at Herzing.
The curriculum for my program was set up in a way that allowed me to complete my studies in a reasonable amount of time. The professional development courses were very helpful to me and should be considered by all students. The entire team at Herzing strives for excellence, so I had remarkable experiences with everyone.
For students pursuing a degree in my field, my advice is to show respect to all professors. Each of them comes from a different focus of law and they all contributed a different component to my educational experience. This makes the program very interesting and valuable.
