I feel that I am part of something bigger than myself, being a student at Argosy University, Orange County. I have the role models for professional success here. I acquired a wealth of knowledge on forensic practice and admired each and every professor for their expertise and ability to relate to us as students. I knew the school would provide me with just as great an experience and training in a clinical capacity as well.
