“They’re just focusing on accounting, on business, on what your degree is. I chose this school, because it’s accelerated. Meaning, I was able to get my bachelor’s degree within two years. Comparatively, it might take about four years, five years.”

“We didn’t use books that often, but they always were showing examples. It was never just books, books, books. It was
always hands-on. Even if it’s not in the lab, they still made it easier to learn because it’s hands-on.”

“I started out doing small-time financials here and there for different accounting firms. Once I finished my education, I had such a better understanding about accounting. I went from specializing in accounting to becoming a knowledgeable expert. I now have a full-time accounting job at a landscaping company. Putting all my effort into my education has landed me a job that I absolutely love.”

“My time in the military, which was 13 years, I was in the medical field then. So, when I got out, I did a little bit of civilian work in the medical field as well. I decided I didn’t want to be in the back office anymore. I wanted to do more toward the front office. So, in order to go move up a little more, I decided to find a school that would help me in that aspect, and I found that at CCSD.”
