“All the hard work I did to get straight A’s didn’t fall under the radar. The faculty and staff at Great Bay encouraged me and wanted me to do even better. It was a positive cycle of being recognized and wanting to be even better. Great Bay has an amazing community, from the doctorate professors to the Advising Center staff. They are caring people who are talented way beyond what I expected.”
