Being on a smaller campus like UNK, I was able to have the same professors for multiple classes. You really get to know your professors and they get to know you. You are able to ask questions and get extra help when needed. You are never just a number at UNK. Professors genuinely care and want to help you succeed. There are so many great opportunities at UNK you may not get the chance to experience at a bigger school. Choose the University where professors take a vested interest in you and your career! The relationships and connections you make at UNK don’t stop the day you graduate; they are permanent. In the field of Education, you can never have too many people on your team. UNK is a fantastic place to start your career in Education!
