What advice would you give to a current Empire State College student?
"A school like SUNY Empire can really help you make your dreams come true. By using life experiences, flexibility of courses, combining traditional education with online education, SUNY Empire can not only help you accomplish getting a degree, but a real career and a rewarding life. It's not for everyone of course, you have to be ready to be your own director, but for those willing to accept the challenge, the rewards are endless."
