I chose University College because UC gave me the opportunity to go to school part time and still maintain my status of being a full-time mom, wife, and employee.

As an employee of the University, I now have an opportunity to receive a degree. As a nontraditional student, my needs are met here at the University. I wouldn't have been able to return to school otherwise. I now have the liberty to earn a degree as an "adult student attending school part-time, full time, any time, and all the time."
