I love the availability of the staff. They are all so helpful and supportive. Keep it up the good work and we can all go far. The instructors are 100% available, 100% helpful, and 100% supportive. Not to mention how understanding and willing to listen. I also love my advisor, Julia Hoke. She is truly delightful every time I speak to her, and she gets done what needs to be done, on my behalf. Mad props!
Review Post University
I have attended Post University. Although I have encountered some difficulty over the course of time I have been there, they have helped a lot and were very understanding!
I am a mother of three, I work full time and I have a child with special needs. The amount of support I receive from the staff and the support services they provide is why I will be able to achieve my educational goals. Thanks to them my dreams will become a reality!
