B.A. Speech Communication '08

Graduate Student, USC

"Hopeís contract program provides students the opportunity to receive the personal and faith-based aspects of a private university, and the breadth of majors and diversity offered at a public school. As a current graduate student at the University of Southern California, I feel exceptionally prepared for graduate studies. I credit my preparedness and personal development to Hope, and the opportunity to receive the benefits of a small private and a large public university."
