May is a month ripe with possibilities, and it always evokes “a sense of celebration” for Dr. Salina Renninger, director of training in the Graduate School of Professional Psychology.

Active Service

Perhaps the most motivating members of our student body are the military veterans who have chosen to earn their degrees after they complete active duty. Whether they choose to begin or continue an undergraduate business degree or pursue an M.B.A. or other graduate business degree, these individuals bring a wealth of experience, deeply held convictions and a great sense of responsibility to their studies.
