Andria Nance – Elementary Education Major

“After graduating high school, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to major in, so I decided to stay close to home and attend UACCH. It turned out to be a great decision! The teachers here are very friendly and the education I am receiving here is preparing me for a 4-year university. The time I’ve spent at UACCH has allowed me the time to decide what I want to major in and at the same time work on my basic education courses that will transfer to a 4-year university.”
