            1979-1985, B.A.

            I had the pleasure of attending UDC from 8/1979 to 5/1985 and finished with a B.A. (Mass Media/Communications). I followed in the footsteps of my Mother, now retried after 37 years teaching in DC Public Schools. She attended Minor Teachers College which is one of the traditional institutions that make up UDC. I thoroughly enjoyed my educational experience at UDC and working very closely with my counselor, Mr. Cornelius Brown helped prepare me for life and the real work world. I actively participate in annual Alumni events and Career Day at UDC. I'm quite honored and blessed, and have had a very successful professional sales career over a 32 year stretch now.

          • Testimony
            1983-1988, B.S.

            At UDC I was introduced to the concepts of Computer Science and software development. The faculty showed unparalleled commitment and some of my professors were the best I've had the pleasure to work with. Built my career foundation at UDC and felt at home during my years of attendance. Coming from another country, UDC was the perfect place for me to learn academically and get introduced to the American culture.
