EMS Student Testimonials

  • Stephanie Thomas — Business Major

    "I would not trade my time at CCU for the world. As a student, I had many awesome experiences and made lasting friendships. Most notable, however, was the connection between EMS and my current employer, General Air. I didn't know that this would turn out to be one of the biggest blessings of my life."

  • Graham Delano — Health Sciences Major

    "As a scribe you are exposed to aspects of medicine that cannot be experienced in a classroom. Indeed, working as a scribe was an invaluable opportunity that gave me a competitive edge when applying to medical schools. I am grateful to EMS for the opportunity."

  • Matthew Hodgkins — Business Major

    "EMS first helped me get a summer internship with a public accounting firm after my junior year. After completing the internship, I informed EMS that I was interested in a new career direction and they supported me every step of the way. They ended up connecting me with the Christian, non-profit organization Samaritan’s Purse."

  • Kelly Robertson — English Major

    "Though I had never imagined working in property management, I couldn't be happier that I took that leap. I love coming into work; the people here are phenomenal. I couldn’t have dreamed up a better opportunity!"

  • Megan Hallett — Psychology Major

    "The students that Right On Learning seeks to help are usually failing in a particular subject. Our role as tutors is to help them learn the material and instill new confidence that they can be successful in the classroom. It's a transformational process for these students!"

Real life. Real faith.
