Center for Adult Programs Testimonials

Quality Christian education, flexible class schedules, and professors who appreciate the enriching experiences that adult students bring to their classes are just a few of the reasons Tara chose the University of Mobile. Affordability and a Financial Aid Office that helped her navigate the world of grants, loans and scholarships was another.

"I was afforded the opportunity to obtain my bachelor's degree in organizational management through the University of Mobile's Center for Adult Programs. As an employee at a local paper mill working a rotating shift schedule, the Adult Programs were the catalyst by which I was able to receive a college degree. The professors and staff were always courteous, helpful, and patient. Upon entering law school, I was prepared with the tools I needed to be successful, underscored by a solid academic foundation and an understanding of time management. Upon receiving my law license, I began work as an assistant district attorney, serving the citizens of Mobile County in our criminal justice system."

"Making the decision to return to school was an easy one for me. Education has always been important to me and it was a lifelong dream to obtain a degree. However, as Confucius said, 'A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step,' and taking the first step to enroll was the hardest part. I really had to work up my courage, but after calling Kay Pugh (CAP Enrollment Coordinator), I knew the University of Mobile was the place for me. From my professors I experienced Christian leadership in action, and through my experiences as a student I gained knowledge and friendships that will last a lifetime. My degree in leadership and cultural studies has not only helped me to develop as a person, but has also helped me in my job to better understand our employees. I enjoyed my experiences at University of Mobile and plan to continue my education through a graduate studies program. I would encourage anyone thinking about college to take the first step and call. You will be so glad you did!"

"The ADN to BSN program at the University of Mobile is exemplary. I originally graduated with my associate's degree from UMobile, and when I made the decision to return to school, this was the only school I considered. The instructors here are all committed to my success, and committed to truly preparing me for future opportunities in my field. I am grateful to God that He opened this particular door for me. The University of Mobile is a great choice. You will love it here."

 Mona Lusk
Administrator, Blast Off, Baldwin County

"I walked up the steps of the university with fear and trepidation, not knowing what to expect. I’d been out of school for too long. I was not a traditional student. Would I be able to do this? Could I actually obtain the education I so desired? The staff members I encountered greeted me with a warm, welcoming smile, reassuring me I belonged there. It was my turn to get the education I wanted. The Center for Adult Programs guided me through each step. They were mindful of the special needs working adults have in pursuing their education. My classes were comprised of other students my age. We could all relate and interact with each other. My experiences with the University of Mobile’s Center for Adult Programs were some of the best in my life."

"I graduated from the University of Mobile’s Center for Adult Programs. Because of this program I was able to earn my B.S. in nursing while attending a Christian college. I thank God for leading me to a university where I was not just another student but an individual with both educational and spiritual needs. I am currently attending the University of Mobile working on my MSN degree in nursing administration and education. I hope to see you there."

"The Center for Adult Programs at the University of Mobile is a great choice for any working adults wanting to continue their education. Oftentimes, the hardest part for an individual is simply getting started. The professors and the entire UMobile staff are extremely encouraging and helpful. The Christian atmosphere at UMobile makes the time spent at the University more enjoyable. It is evident that the Center for Adult Programs strives to offer a quality education that is custom fit to today’s working adult. The degree that I obtained at UM has opened doors for me that otherwise would not have been opened. I would encourage anyone wanting to continue their education to consider the University of Mobile."

Julianna Gibson

"I earned my BBA in the fall of 2011 following the CAP program that the University of Mobile offered. I cannot say enough about this program and the faculty. It had been quite some time since I had been in school, but no one is a stranger at this campus; everyone is family. When teachers know your name even when you are not in class, that speaks volumes to me personally. I am so grateful and so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be associated with such a place. Since graduating, I have begun working for myself and I have not been happier in my life. I owe a great heartfelt thank you to the University, its faculty and friends for helping achieve my dreams. In addition to earning my degree, I also discovered God’s love while I was attending. I know if it were not for Him, none of this would be possible."
