Learning in the SCS downtown campus has been fantastic! I appreciate the building's floor plan that allows us to collaborate in open spaces. The downtown campus makes everything convenient now that we can explore the city right outside our doors and continue growing the relationships we created in the classroom."Madeline Harrington, Master of Professional Studies, PRCC
