What about SAU made your college education worthwhile?
"The sense of community at SAU really enhances the value of the college education. At Ambrose, you get learning both inside and outside of the classroom; you grow as a person," Katie says. We are a community of diverse learners who value inquiry, discussion, and critical thought. We respect and support each other, our community and the world. This is the 'Ambrosian' experience and it makes your education unique.
How did you grow as a person within the SAU community?
"Intellectually, I learned the knowledge and skills to excel in my profession. My spiritual life was deepened by Sunday mass and the retreats I attended. Socially, I met many friends with whom I believe I will have lifelong friendships," Katie says.
