"My education in Family Services prepared me to enter a competitive master’s degree program in social work. It gave me a solid foundation in human and family development which has allowed me to understand the needs of clients working with a variety of addiction and other mental health concerns. In addition to preparing me for my professional career, my education at SUU helped me prepare for my most important roles – being a husband and father."
