Program Outcomes

"I would definitely recommend Newman. I was an undergraduate student, and I stayed just because it’s worth any amount of money because you’re a person there. You get to know everyone. I know so many of the staff, the faculty, there’s nothing like it."

"The communication and teamwork, especially with my advisors, and having that small classroom size really helped me because it was one on one. The knew my name, and I wasn’t just a number."
