Student Comments:

“This is the first time I have attempted any type of budget course. I was walking in with complete hesitation and reservation that this would be utterly difficult. I am excited to say that I have a clearer understanding of the budgetary process and appreciate the pace that this class went for a student who does not like dealing with finances.”
