Jennifer Corkle, Trine psychology major
Jennifer Corkle first found the right fit at Trine University as a traditional student. Now, as an adult learner in Trine′s School of Professional Studies, Corkle says she has again found the right fit.
Corkle, a working parent, is majoring in psychology, and is on track to graduate in May 2015.
"Trine offers me a top–notch education, on a small, intimate campus, in a program where I attend classes with other working adults," said Corkle, of Camden, Mich. "I could not have built myself a better institution at which to earn my degree in psychology."
"I was a traditional student at Trine after graduating high school, but unfortunately had to withdraw for personal reasons. When I finally made the decision to return to school and complete my degree, I was ecstatic to learn that Trine had the School of Professional Studies in Angola."
"Outstanding academic quality and professors" are reasons why she selected Trine.
"The professors I had when I first attended Trine and the professors I have now are all extremely knowledgeable in their fields and beyond, and I appreciate having the opportunity to learn from them," she said, adding that learning goes beyond classroom lessons.
"John Curtis, an adjunct instructor, made an impact on me after taking his interpersonal communications class. From the moment I first walked into his classroom, I felt like he wasn′t there just to ′teach′ us what was in our textbooks; he was there to help us expand our thinking and develop into better people," she said.
