"There was a time in my life when I thought I would never get the opportunity to go to college and earn my degree. Yet Asbury made it possible. At the age of 34, I graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors and the most amazing feeling of accomplishment that I have ever experienced. It was one of the most joyous, unforgettable days of my life, and getting to share that experience with my husband and children was just icing on the cake." - Trina
