Graduate Success Stories

“I have absolutely no regrets about any part of my Hodges experience. I found the work to be relevant, and helpful in my workplace…The workload is challenging, yet, not debilitating, and the staff and resources provided were easily accessible and supportive. It was one of the best decisions of my life,” said Joelle Beverly.

Believing that Hodges changed her life, she calls it her “mulligan” and encourages others to take the next step and embrace the opportunities provided at Hodges. “All of this work will be worth it. The time away from your friends, family, barbecues, and birthday parties, it will all be worth it. Times will be hard, some nights will be long, but the self-satisfaction you will feel at the end of the road is indescribable.”
