Why did you choose Heritage?
I chose Heritage University, because I had originally attended YVCC a little over ten years ago, but even then the class size was so large, it was hard to focus on the teaching, language and material we covered. I felt lost. I was not ready for continuing education then, but soon got wise after being in the work field for years, and felt I was not complete; my kids were getting older, I wanted to come to college to accomplish getting a degree, and gaining a career instead of just a job. I am ready. The experience has been scary, but then you feel neurons firing, your brain operating at a radical speed to process more information, you feel relaxed and ready to take on the assignments. It has been really fun to be here so far, the location is great, the staff is great, the student peers are outstanding, this is the perfect environment to attend college, at a University level, HU Rules!! P.S. When I was in high school our mascot was an Eagle, and here I am an Eagle again, Love It!!
