"Enjoy the learning experience, as your classmates and instructors have lots to share and contribute. In addition, it can be a hard balance with work, family, school, having a life, etc. The end is definitely worth it and you will succeed.”

A favorite quote that helped me get through my 3 years was, “Done is better than great.”
