          • Testimony
            1976-1980, B.M.

            Cluster of small colleges gives you the best of both worlds.

            As a Conservatory Student, I enjoyed the small school feel and small class sizes, as well as the close relationships with the faculty. I'm also grateful for the opportunity to take classes from the other colleges. The computer programming course that I took from the School of Engineering showed me a passion I wasn't aware of. After spending many years as a programmer, I now teach both computer and music courses at a community college, and enjoy being able to pursue both passions.

          • Testimony
            1972-1982, BA

            UOP provides a great learning experience and concern for every student

            UOP offered me relatively small class sizes, professors that got to know every student, and a wonderful study abroad program. Bonuses included many opportunities to join college trips to Yosemite and elsewhere to rock climb, ski and hike.
