“There are so many dedicated professors and staff that work hard every day to make this program as great as it is,” said Pawluck. “I’ve never once felt like I did not know what was going on and there are always upperclassmen who are more than willing to help those of us who are just starting in the program get on the right track in order to succeed.”
