Transform the

"During my undergraduate studies, UWGB faculty, such as Dr. Ray Hutchison, helped foster my desire to critically explore human behavior and to use that to transform the world. In addition, my sociology major provided the foundational skills needed to be a responsible citizen as I worked to help people and animals in need. My degree offered the competitive edge when I later pursued my graduate studies."
