emeldaMajor: B.S. in Human Services – IDEAL Program
Class Year: ’10

IDEAL gave me the opportunity to broaden my horizons in the field of Human Services. Ideally, the quality of education offered had a profound effect on my outlook in life. It is indeed an excellent program for adults who want to make a meaningful contribution to society.

My three children graduated from college and left home. An epiphany got a hold of me. The thought of going back to school entered my mind. Consequently, I acted upon it and chose IDEAL. The IDEAL program is absolutely fascinating and rewarding. It gives working adults the opportunity to complete a degree of their choice in an accelerated class program.

My UB IDEAL experience was based on favorable happenings. I found the faculty highly satisfactory, very encouraging. The staff in the IDEAL program were very unique and always ready to assist students to reach their goals in higher education. I was inspired by my academic advisor, Yvrose Romulus. Classmates were friendly and confidential. Members of family encouraged me, “Go for it.”
