Quote from Recent Graduate

Today was my first day of graduate classes in the University of Rochester Marriage and Family Therapy program. Our first topic was genograms, and I found out that a later assignment is to create our own family genograms! Needless to say, I already feel very prepared. Also, the Master's thesis project that I will need to complete before graduation has very similar requirements to the departmental honors project I just completed; I am so glad to have already had such a quality research experience and feel ahead of the game. Thank you for your help and support, and I am grateful to all of the HDFS faculty for contributing to the high-quality education that I received at Messiah.
