Fall 2021 is her final semester and she is making sure that when she leaves campus with her Tulane degree she’ll also take with her a wealth of work experience that she’s earning as a summer intern with David A.

I’m actually having a great time and learning a lot. My work is remote and self-paced.

SoPA provides a quality of education. I also love having really experienced professors and their willingness to provide career help and guidance outside of the classroom is exceptional.
