Student Testimonial

"I was attracted to UC because of its location in the beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the small class sizes. Throughout the application process, everyone was so helpful, courteous and professional, which made even the beginning of my UC education a positive experience. The instructors are very hands-on and supportive, which was something I was looking for in my PA education."

– Suzanne Benninger, PA program
