I loved the online program. Attending UF was a dream come true for me, and it was only possible through the online program. Additionally, the GSC program was a perfect fit for me. I am now the manager of events and marketing at a nonprofit called The Covering House. There is no doubt in my mind that my master's degree was one reason why I received this position. I was able to jump right in to this job without any trouble, and I firmly believe the education I received through the online program is why I was able to do this.Mandy Darr
