Student Testimonial

Cara Hackett, SOC/MA '20

I was better equipped in the decision to apply to American University.

Although I had the support of family, friends and professors, making the decision to pursue graduate school was a challenge. There was so much information to digest regarding post-undergraduate life and I underestimated how stressful it could be.

Without the Graduate Feeder Scholars Program, I’m not sure if I would have had such a smooth transition to AU’s School of Communication as a Journalism and Digital Storytelling student or to the DC area.
