"I wanted to be a part of a program that was going to help me expand my skills, and challenge myself. The professors also played a large role in choosing UNK. When I visited they all seemed extremely genuine and knowledgeable. This program has given me exactly what I wanted: a challenge. I look back at my beginning design work, and am constantly amazed with how much I've grown. The professors here have also given me the desire to go back to grad school in the future, and possibly teach design myself. I may be a little sleep deprived, but I love what I do and couldn't be happier with my experience here."
