As I researched UHD online and looked into the fine arts department, I learned of Professor Floyd Newsom. He's a well-known and established artist, which peaked my interest. I also liked the small, campus setting and the professors and deans were very personable and helpful.

​I wanted to attend colleg​​e locally, so I knew UHD was the perfect place to pursue sociology. Choosing to pursue my degree at UHD was one of the best decisions I've made. The program is not only educational but also interactive. The professors are great, too, and I love their open door policy.​​

I saw that UHD provided smaller classes and evening classes, so I knew it would be a great fit for me. You see people from all ages and backgrounds. I really love that because it complements my major, sociology.  Angela Hicks Success Story

My UHD education was like giving a gift to myself – the best gift I could have ever given myself.  UHD helped me overcome the challenges because it is close to work, offers flexibility with online and night classes, and it's so affordable!
