The decision to attend Hodges was an easy one for her.
“Hodges was my first choice. The first step is the hardest, but I sent that email and they responded so fast,” she said. “Erlis (Abazi, Director of Recruitment) was so nice and talked with me about what I wanted to do. I signed up that day for the accounting program. Everyone at Hodges is so helpful. The professors are right there and they give you their number so you can contact them.”
