Congratulations to October student of the month, Jack Potter!

“Jack Potter should be chosen as the October Student of the Month because of his dedication to improving himself in mind, body, and spirit. For example, in class, I often use Jack’s completed work as an example to the rest of the class and will often ask him to provide help to his peers, specifically related to navigating technology. He also consistently meets with peers and his instructor outside of class to complete homework. Outside of the classroom, Jack has taken it upon himself to find time in his schedule to workout an average of 4 days a week for 30 minutes, participate in on-campus activities, and will soon be working with CUAA’s Esports team! Overall, Jack Potter exemplifies what it means to be uncommon in all that he does! Thank you for taking the time to consider him for this award!” —Faculty Nomination

What would you share with prospective students who are considering attending CUAA?

College may be tough at first, but once you get the hang of it, you will have a good time. Just enjoy being on campus and make every day something to remember.
