The experience so far has been outstanding. It’s been nothing short of an incredible experience so far.”

“Twenty years in the Navy, I know what it’s like to be a part of a community that treats you like family. I’m so glad we have found something similar for Luke here. I truly believe that his soccer skills will really develop and flourish with a team that feels like family to him.”
“He says he has people there that he can turn to for help and that really care about his success. This makes me proud of him and so pleased that we chose UDA and UoG. He would not have gotten this level of personal care at a US university.”
