After some extensive research, talking with co-workers, and visiting the campus, Charlie decided to apply to Central Penn College because it was close to home and it offered everything he needed to fulfill his educational goals. “I knew I would be successful attending this college,” he says.

Homeland Security as a major has a wide range of interesting competencies and disciplines that piqued his interest. “My experience at Central Penn was epic,” he says. “I really enjoyed interacting with fellow students and faculty. The professors brought their real-world experience to the classroom. They encouraged and supported me.”

He goes even further. “Central Penn gave me a new start in life, and that’s something I really appreciate,” he says.

As a military veteran, he was impressed by the atmosphere at Central Penn. “I would give Central Penn a five-star rating as a military-friendly institution and I feel that Central Penn College has fully embraced supporting our troops,” he says.

For those working professionals who are considering going back to school, he offers encouraging words: “Working fulltime and attending college is a worthwhile achievement… The best advice I could give is to take one or two classes at a time and stay focused. Stay away from the negative talk and remain positive.”
