"Signing up for Weekend College was the first step in rebuilding my life. With the faculty’s guidance, I was able to acquire knowledge and skills that helped open the door to new professional opportunities. The convenient schedule that Weekend College offers allowed me to obtain my bachelor’s degree while I worked a full-time job and raised my son. I will always be grateful that I chose St. Joseph's University."
