"You really understand what its like to be in the real world."  “Just getting to interact with the people on such a close level, and discover how similar we are, even though we’re on completely opposite ends of the world – I was a completely different person after coming back from Kenya.”

Engineering Alumni Stories

"You're not a number, you are really a person. All your professors will know you, you will know you're classmates —there's a sense of community. The setting here is a safe, caring community, and those are the things that I think are really important." "Seeing Valpo as a teaching-focused institution has encouraged me to attend grad school and hopefully eventually become a teacher, because I see how important it is to educate young engineers."

"The Dale Carnegie course was amazing, and I'm still using it to this day… You graduate, and you get into the real world, and you realize how much more you have to talk to people. Valpo gave me the foundation to do whatever I wanted to do. They gave me all the resources I needed to tackle whatever I wanted in life."
