"Adult Learner Services was there for me every step of the way.  Literally, from the very begninning, every question was answered."

My name is Johnathan Brooks and I just want to thank the Adult Learner Services, for all the help they provided me in the midst of my life changing decisions to return to school.

I was a full time pastor of a church my wife & I started 15 years ago. Long story short, I needed a change.

After being out of school for 20 years, and in the midst of a career change, I felt it necessary to return to school. I had no idea how to pursue my educational goals, and later found out I wasn’t sure of what my goals were. The Adult Learner service was there for me every step of the way. I changed my major three times over the last year, and received great guidance and plenty of patience from Janet and others through each transition.

I am married with an adult child and two young children. I am a full time employee of Defense Finance & Accounting Services (DFAS), in Rome, NY. So full time work (with a lot of overtime), and full time school (Accounting major), has been a huge hurdle. However, with the support of the Adult Learner Services, it was a feat I have smoothly (after a few bumps), transitioned into. I am also a prior service Army veteran.

Thank you sooooo much. I couldn’t have done it without you.
