I had someone there every step of the way. They walked me through what could have been a very stressful process. It put me on a path that started an epic journey.

Everything was easy and my advisor with The Major Group walked me through it all. This was my third time going to college and by far the least stressful enrollment process.

-Felicia, Ft. Campbell

I loved the whole process. Everyone was very helpful and made sure that the program I wanted to join was something I wanted to do. It also helped me put my goals in place.

-Crystal, Fort Riley

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.

-Elizabeth, Fort Gordon

It was easy, simple, and quick. There was someone there every step of the way to help you fill out all the required documents. I would recommend to all military spouses who want to go to school, especially if you’re a stay-at-home spouse.

Everything was very easy to do and got done rather quickly from start to finish.
