My education in the accounting program at SUNY Delhi has been hugely relevant to my career. There is not a class that I took that I don’t use on a daily basis in my work. The professors taught me not only book knowledge, but their experiences from the real world. They were invested in my success. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better place to spend your time in college.”
