If I could identify one thing that made a difference, it would be Great Bay. I talk all the time about how much Great Bay changed my life and gave me a huge foundation. I am incredibly grateful for my time there.

Fine Arts students Jacob Aldridge and Jasmine Asbury break out the oil paints for assignment in Professor Higley's Painting 101 class. If you haven't seen the talented work of our art students, stop by the art classroom on 3rd floor!
I believe that through studying for my English degree, I have become a more open-minded, sympathetic and empathetic person.
