Being a student in the IPD program at 体育菠菜大平台 was a fantastic experience. The program itself is just the right size so that you as a student can develop close personal relationships with the staff and the students. The IPD program is like a family throughout your years at 体育菠菜大平台 and has brought me some of my closest friends.

Transitioning from college to work was actually very easy for me as I was able to work throughout school in a position in my field with the company I now hold a position with. The relationship I was able to develop with my boss and coworkers while I worked completing school set me up for a very smooth transition."
