“CNR has given me opportunities that I
wouldn’t have had if I went to a
different school or a bigger school. I get one-on-one attention from my
teachers and everyone knows my name. I am going to study abroad and
that’s unique because Dr. Beauzethier approached me about doing it and
encouraged me. That wouldn't have happened at a bigger school.”
