Commencement on May 5, 2012.

When I first decided to advance my college education, I must admit, I was apprehensive. After all, I was quickly approaching the age of 40, I’m married, I have two children, and I couldn’t see myself having the time or the energy for college. The degree completion program at the University is for people like me, and is of the highest quality. For the last two years, I have crossed paths with some of the most professional and personable instructors. However, there is one that stands out from the rest.For my orientation class, I had Scott Freehafer as my professor. From day one, he accepted me into the University with open arms, and my apprehension quickly disappeared. He has been an inspiration throughout my two years at the University not only by challenging my abilities as a student but by preparing me for the next step in my professional career. Scott Freehafer is an exceptional professor, an inspiring leader, and a remarkable human being. I am proud to say that I will soon be a graduate of The University of Findlay and appreciative to have crossed paths with him.
