“My experience at UNK also helped to make me more open-minded and better-informed. I was challenged, which made me learn more and new ways of thinking. It allowed for a learning environment with many different people coming together to see new perspectives. It was amazing to come to a place where I could finally find my crowd of people. Through the social work program, I was truly set up for the real world.”
