“Not only did I enjoy my time in the psychology program, but I was thoroughly prepared for my masters of counseling program. As an athlete, I was supported by my teachers both in the classroom and in the gym. Small class sizes allowed me to get the individual time I needed to be successful. The only thing I would like to have changed, is there to be a masters program within the field at Eastern so that I wouldn’t have had to have left.”
