I can actually go to my state university for free. But Walden helped me get to the level I’m at now and I would not trade Walden for any other university.
Four of my friends all enrolled because my husband and I bragged so much about Walden's mission, the success of the students after they graduated, and the rigorous learning experience.
The mentorship at Walden has been the greatest value. It’s consistent, ongoing, empowering, and encouraging. It’s a network that has provided a wealth of resources.
