Student Spotlight

Jerry Oliver

“The M.Ed. EARL program was intriguing to me. This program directly benefits what I am doing on a daily basis as Director of Student Success At Gordon State College.

I enjoyed this program so much, It was almost an escape for me. There were challenges, but the faculty were particularly great. I cannot say enough about Dr. Zinske. I never even me her in person, and yet she is very approachable and helpful.

I now have more confidence in my writing ability and the program taught me everything I needed to know about research-how to read it, understand it, and do it.”
