Success story Alyse Mikkelsen smiling.
The instructors at the Sioux Falls location are skilled, intelligent people with years of experience in the field. When an instructor brings in guest speakers or does field trips it gives students a realistic view of what to expect after college. Each instructor brings a different element into this broad field and that diversity is paramount when it comes to the success of students.
