Ashley Higgins'When people ask me how I like the MSW program at Asbury, I always respond by starting with, "I love being part of their MSW family!"  I have learned so much about social work practice in the classroom, and have been provided with many opportunities in the community to put what I have learned into action.  Furthermore, because of the small class style, I have developed relationships with my classmates and professors that I will keep long after graduation.'
