Karl's Story

“You can go to college just about anywhere and gain knowledge, but I really wanted the change of heart. In a larger college in this area you can get exposure through internships and different programs, but with WLC I was able to have a one-on-one mentorship through our LEAP program and gain exposure with the Vice President’s office to see what its like on a day to day basis. I was able to strengthen certain skills I didn’t know I had.”
