student success story

Success story Connor Sperber smiling.
I transferred from a large private institution that lacked many of the personalized resources USD offers to all its students. The number of opportunities to grow my post-college career with an alumni network so devoted to student success is second to none and made the decision simple. Even with transferring universities, I was able to graduate with my bachelor’s degree in three years total with the help of my supportive academic and admission counselors.
