If I could identify one thing that made a difference, it would be Great Bay. I talk all the time about how much Great Bay changed my life and gave me a huge foundation. I am incredibly grateful for my time there.

We love this story for so many reasons.

Minnie is a rock star.

We firmly believe in lifelong learning - whether pursuing an education for degree or degree completion, career training/advancement or to reach a personal goal.

You are never too "old" to get started.

It takes work, grit (just like our students show every day) but the feeling of accomplishment is REAL. Your future self will thank you.
I believe that through studying for my English degree, I have become a more open-minded, sympathetic and empathetic person.
