The skills I learned on campus have transferred to my day-to-day work – using my business and technical knowledge to make decisions and create value. Graceland taught me how to learn, and how to learn fast! Since I graduated, I’ve added a variety of skills to my toolkit, with my undergrad knowledge at the core.”
