“The journey of earning my degree of applied science began at a local community college and continued to completion at Madonna. Madonna’s admissions department made it easy to transfer my credits and the science department laid a clear path for me with plenty of support along the way. “Ultimately, the science degree I was working towards led to a new job opportunity prior to graduation with my new employer funding the remainder of my education.”

Proud to be a Crusader,
