What was your first impression of the Garland School of Social Work?
Online - the information is clear and robust. The chairs were easy to communicate with and faculty was available to answer any questions.
In person - I cannot give enough positive feedback about my experience at the Garland School of Social Work. The staff and faculty were warm, interested, and invested in us individually and as a cohort from the moment we walked in. I felt known. I felt spurred on in my research interests. I felt heard by every person I encountered. I left feeling connected to my educational goals, the university, the school of social work, my cohort, and the faculty.
